SUMMERSIDE – The second draw of the Pepsi P.E.I. junior curling championships for curlers under the age of 21 is now in the books.

Leslie Noye of the Western Community Curling Club in Alberton releases a shot during Friday afternoon’s draw in the Pepsi P.E.I. junior curling championships at the Silver Fox Curling and Yacht Club in Summerside.

Six games were held on the six-sheet ice surface at the Silver Fox Curling and Yacht Club on Friday afternoon.

Defending men’s champion Tyler Smith of the Montague Curling Club won his opening game 10-7 over Alex MacFadyen of the host Silver Fox.

MacFadyen scored three in the fifth end to take a 6-3 lead into the break. However, Smith countered with a deuce in the sixth end and then stole three in the seventh and two more in the eighth before MacFadyen closed out the scoring with a single point in the ninth end.

Leslie Noye of the Western Community Curling Club in Alberton stole six points in defeating Donald DeWolfe of the Cornwall Curling Club 9-2 to even his record at 1-1 (won-lost). DeWolfe fell to 0-2.

Kyle Holland of the Charlottetown Curling Complex also opened on a winning note, defeating Devin Schut of the Cornwall Curling Club 11-3. Holland scored single points in the first three ends, and then stole three in the fourth for a 6-0 lead, and he never relinquished control.

 

Women

In women’s play, Amanda MacLean of the Cornwall Curling Club led Emily Keen of Cornwall 5-2 after seven ends, and then counted five in the eighth to close out the scoring in a 10-2 victory. MacLean improved to 2-0 while Keen dropped to 0-2.

Defending-champion Veronica Smith also made it two wins in a row with an 8-2 decision over Cornwall’s Meghan Ching. Smith led 4-2 after six ends and then counted three with the hammer in the seventh to go up 7-2, and stole a single point in the eighth end.

Kaleigh MacKay’s combined Crapaud/Montague rink scored three points in the 10th end with last-rock advantage to defeat Jenny McLean of the Silver Fox 8-5. It was MacKay’s first game and MacLean is now 0-2.

The winning rinks will represent P.E.I. at the M&M Meat Shops Canadian junior curling championships in Liverpool, N.S., from Jan. 18 to 26.

Action resumes at the Silver Fox tonight (Friday) at 7 p.m. Saturday’s draws are scheduled for 9 a.m., and 6 p.m.
