Even before there was a road between Little Current and Espanola, curlers from the two communities would meet for one reason: The Baxter Cup!

The yearly event, one set of games in each town a week apart, sees the total score from ten games determine the winner.

This week, Little Current collected 32 points, Espanola, 27.

Plays picks up at the Espanola Curling Club next Tuesday at 7:00pm.
