CHARLOTTETOWN – There’s now only one unbeaten team at the Curl P.E.I. Canada Games curling trials being held at the Charlottetown Curling Complex.
The Alex MacFadyen rink from the Silver Fox Curling and Yacht Club in Summerside sits atop the six-team men’s round-robin standings at 3-0 (won-lost). Leslie Noye and his team from the Western Community Curling Club in Alberton, and 2011 Canada Games representative Tyler Smith and his Montague Curling Club team are at 2-1. Cameron Jenkins and Donald DeWolfe, both of Cornwall, are 1-3 and clubmate Devin Schut is 0-4.
Friday, MacFadyen doubled Smith 10-5 in eight ends in the afternoon, and beat DeWolfe 6-4 in evening action. Smith rebounded with a 12-7 win over Jenkins. Noye edged Jenkins 8-7 in an extra end in the afternoon, and beat Schut 11-7 in the nightcap.
There’s a logjam at the top of the four-team women’s double round-robin standings. The Kaleigh MacKay rink from Montague and Crapaud, the Lauren Moerike foursome from the host club and the Meghan Ching team from Cornwall all sport 2-1 records.
The fourth team in the event, skipped by Karlie Lewis out of the Western Community Curling Club, is 0-3.
In action Friday, MacKay beat Ching 10-3 but lost 8-6 to Moerike, who scored a six-ender in her 14-1 win over Lewis. Ching won her evening game 10-4 over Lewis.
The trials will qualify two men’s and two women’s teams as the training teams for the 2015 Canada Games. A best-of-three series between the training teams will be held in November to determine the teams that will go to the Canada Games in Prince George, B.C., from Feb. 13 to March 1, 2015.
