FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

George rink inches closer to playoffs at 2010 U.S. Olympic Team Trials

 

(BROOMFIELD, Colo.) - Tyler George has taken a systematic approach in his quest to be the second member of the George family to be labeled an Olympian. So far it's working as he's led his team to a 6-1 record so far at the 2010 U.S. Olympic Team Trials at the Broomfield Event Center.

 

In this morning's action, George (Duluth, Minn.), whose sister Courtney George was a member of the 2006 Olympic team, helped his teammates Kris Perkovich (Chisholm, Minn.), Kevin Johnson (Duluth) and Mark Haluptzok (Bemidji) jump out early on fellow Duluth native Chris Plys en route to a 9-5 victory. George scored three points in the second end, forced Plys to a single in the third and then got a big end set up again in the fourth for three more points. Plys would make an open hit for a deuce in the fifth end to get back in the game but George would steal two points in the seventh to earn the win. One more win should secure George a spot in Friday's page playoffs.

 

"That was our best game of the week top to bottom," George said. "There's still a little room for improvement. We're trying not to look at the big picture and get too far ahead because then you lose focus."

 

Craig Disher's team improved to 3-4 with 7-0 win over Greg Romaniuk. "We've had a little trouble with consistency with the ice, but hopefully we've straightened that out," Kevin Kakela said. "We just need to relax and have some fun. We played more consistently today, and we feel confident about our chances of making it to the playoffs. We certainly have the experience." Disher's team has been the national runner-up for the past three seasons and won the title back in 1997.

 

Mike Farbelow (Minneapolis), John Shuster (Duluth, Minn.) and Mark Johnson (Edmonton, Alberta) teams all picked up wins today and are now 4-3, tied with Todd Birr (Mankato, Minn.) for second place.

 

Live scoring from the event will be available at www.usacurl.org/curlingrocks in the scoreboard.
