MONCTON, N.B. – It’s Suzanne Birt taking on Kathy O’Rourke in Sunday afternoon’s final of the Lady Monctonian at Curl Moncton.
O’Rourke was tied with Sylvie Robichaud after six ends, but pulled out the win in a close contest. Meanwhile, Birt beat Colleen Pinkney in the other semifinal. The final scores were unavailable.
O’Rourke and Birt are both Summerside natives.
Both Birt and O’Rourke curl out of the Charlottetown Curling Complex, and both finished round robin play with 3-2 (won-lost) records.
The other P.E.I. rink in the event, skipped by Kim Dolan, also finished the round robin at 3-2, tied with Kelly MacIntosh and Sarah Rhyno in their pool, but did not advance to the quarter-finals after draw-to-the button results were compared.
