O’LEARY -- The Tammy Dewar rink will be assured at least a semi-final berth in the Curl P.E.I. Provincial Mixed Curling Championships with a win in her final round-robin game Sunday morning here at the Maple Leaf Curling Club.
Dewar, whose team has curlers from the Montague, Charlottetown and Maple Leaf Curling Club, moved to 4-1 in the standings with a 6-4 win Saturday night over Larry Richards’ Montague rink. She plays the Mark MacDonald (3-1) Cornwall Curling Club team in her final round robin game Sunday at 10 a.m. She has the bye in the final round robin draw Sunday afternoon. Jamie Newson from Charlottetown is also at 3-1. Bill Hope’s Cornwall/Silver Fox team takes a 3-2 record into Sunday’s 2:30 p.m. draw.
In other games in Saturday’s 7 p.m. draw Newson defeated Hope 6-3 and MacDonald scored a 9-0 win over Montague’s George Koke.
Standings after draw five:
Tammy Dewar, 4-1; Mark MacDonald and Jamie Newson, 3-1; Bill Hope, 3-2; George Koke, 2-2 and Larry Richards and Clair Sweet, 0-4.
The second and third place teams at the end of round robin and, if necessary, tie-breakers, will play in a semi-final for the right to play the first place team in a championship final. The over-all winner will represent P.E.I. at the Canadian Mixed at North Bay Granite Curling Club in November.
