The Swift Current Curling Club was home to an ultra-rare accomplishment during Monday afternoon league play.

Dale Obst's rink pulled off the unique eight-ender helping them secure a come-from-behind 14-7 win.

The feat almost didn't even happen as Obst, and his team thought about shaking hands after the fifth end trailing by six.

Down by two but holding the hammer in the eighth and final end, the miraculous feat began to unravel. 

Lead Richard Weetman put both of his rocks in play for the Obst rink.

"Then it was a series of misses on both teams," said Clayton Obst, the team's third. "We actually debated on ripping out one of our rocks in the rings and then it would have ended the whole end. Then no chance at the eight-ender."

Second Suzanne Hogg tapped a guard into the ring and left her rock as a replacement guard. Clayton then missed placing his guard and tapped the existing guard in. The opposition pushed Clayton's first rock into the ring before he unintentionally put his final rock into scoring position.

"We noticed (we had a chance at an eight) when we had six of ours in the end," he said. "We put our second last rock on the four-foot and that would have won us the game. Before our opponent threw his shot, my dad looked at me and said if he misses this, we're throwing for the eight-ender. We didn't have to throw our last rock.

"I have to give the guy we were playing props; he didn't balk at it or try and peel something off just to avoid the eight-ender. He legitimately tried to put a draw in there... He just came up light. It was just out in front of the rings. If he had drawn right in for where he was trying for, we might have scored two points at the most." 

Once the opposition's draw came up light, Dale threw a draw solidifying the team's eight-ender.

"I've curled 55 years and that's my first eight-ender," Dale told Clayton.
