ALBERTON -- After two tie-breaker draws, the play-off match-ups are set for The Dominion P.E.I. Club Curling Championships. The Karen MacDonald Silver Fox rink plays the second-place Lorianne Davies rink from Cornwall in the women’s semi-final while the Silver Fox’s Blair Jay rink meets Montague’s Paul Morrison in the other. Both semi-finals go at 1:30 p.m. at the Western Community Curling Club.
After round robin play, the top three men’s teams and the top three women’s teams were to advance to the play-off round. Round-robin play did determine the play-off contenders for the men, with defending champion Alan Inman from Crapaud taking first with a 5-0 record to advance directly to Sunday’s 5:30 p.m. championship final against either Jay or Morrison who finished tied with 3-2 records.
On the women’s side, the Sharon Horne rink from the host club and Davies finished with 4-1 records. Horne was put through to the final because of her round-robin win over Davies.
That left Davies waiting for results of two tie-breakers to find out who she would be meeting in the semi-final.
MacDonald, Charlottetown’s Carol Kennedy and Montague’s Tracy Yorston-Campbell all finished tied for third with 2-3 records.
Kennedy defeated Yorston-Campbell in the first tie-breaker 7-1 Saturday night, but lost her morning tiebreaker 6-3 to MacDonald.
The men’s and women’s provincial champions will represent P.E.I. in The Dominion’s National Club Championships in Thunder Bay in November.
