3 Sep 2009 – Excellent curling, outstanding sportsmanship and unbelievable tension were all present during the conclusion of the 2009 North Island Secondary Schools Curling Championships at Paradice Avondale today.

Remarkably, all three finals – Mixed, Girls and Boys – were decided by a draw to the button after each was tied when the clock ran out.

And in each game a repeat draw was necessary as nerves struck, and all stones were outside the house after the first draw from each side.

24 Jul 2009 – It happens all the time at one day cricket. It happened in the curling Bronze medal game at the Turin Olympics, and now it's happened in the eighth round of the Auckland School Curling competition.

Just as the first end was getting underway at Paradice last night, a masked streaker leapt the barrier onto the ice and tobogganed across the four sheets.

He then scrambled over the barrier on the far side before disappearing out into a wet Auckland night.
