TRURO – The highlight of the year might have happened in the first night of curling a Colchester County junior girls team.
Lindsey Burgess, Katie Hennigar, Lane Yuill and Todd Burgess, sparing as lead for Madison Murray, scored an 8-ender against their opposition in the sixth end during opening night of their Wednesday Night League at Truro Curling Club.
An eight-ender is the rare occurrence of scoring eight points in a single end.
As Hennigar prepared to throw the last rock of the end, the players on the other four sheets stopped their games to watch the shot and upwards of 20 people behind the glass added some drama.
As Hannigar’s rock came to rest in the house, applause from the other curlers on the adjacent sheets and cheers from those behind the glass were heard.
