Cookstown Juniors Win Regional Cup!
The Cookstown Junior Bantam Team won the regional Steven Simpson Bonspiel Cup this past Saturday, 26 January, after playing against their peers from neighbouring towns of Churchill, Coldwater, Barrie, Port Carling and Bradford.
The bonspiel was held at the Churchill Curling Club for the bantam level – ages 11-16. The Cookstown team played two roaring eight end games – one against Churchill and the other against Coldwater. Score against Churchill was 16:3 and then 10:4 against Coldwater.
The Steven Simpson bonspiel was a points spiel, which meant the team having the most points out of not only the teams Cookstown beat but against Barrie, Port Carling and Bradford in their respective competitions.
