Wow. What a week at the Ontario Tankard that was! Team Glenn Howard posted a perfect 10-0 record during the round robin. In the 1 vs. 2 game, TGH fell to Team John Epping, putting them into the semi-final game vs. Team Mike Harris. The game was sent into an extra end when Harris took two points the tenth end. In the extra, Howard drew four foot for the win, sending them straight into the final vs. Team John Epping. The final game was back and forth, with TGH needing one point to tie, or two to win in the tenth end. Howard making a runback-double on his first shot, needed to make a runback-double-stick to count for TGH's two points. With only seconds left on the clock, Howard threw, and made the shot, punches their tickets to the Tim Horton's Brier. TGH would like to thank their sponsors, V.R. Mechanical Solutions Inc., and BalancePlus for their continued support this season. They would also like to thank their friends, family, and fans for the outstanding support during the Ontario Tankard, and especially during the final game. TGH would like to mention Adam Spencer, "Super Spare", who played with the team the entire week, while third, Wayne Middaugh, was out with a broken leg due to a skiing injury. Spencer played outstanding all week, and will continue to play with TGH while at the Brier. We look forward to the Brier beginning March 5th! See you all in Ottawa!
