2014-2015 season Winnie Normandeau Trophy winners.

2014-2015 Hardy Rocks Winnie Normandeau Trophy Winners

It was real nail biter right to the last draw today. Three teams were very much in contention.
Team Hesketh won in the morning putting them temporarily in first place.
Team Timm could become champions with a win or a tie and Team Hart needed a win against Team Lauzon.
Team Timm fell to Team Poulter that couldn't miss a shot.
Team Lauzon put up a magnificent battle but final succumbed to Team Hart.
Team Hart ended up tied with Team Hesketh at 20 points but was the overall winner in the tie breaker with 20 points to 10 points on the draw to the button!
