In P.E.I. under-16 curling ch’ships

ALBERTON – The defending-champion Alex MacFadyen rink from the Silver Fox and the Lauren Lenentine rink from Cornwall picked up where they left off last year, winning their opening games of the O’Connor Glass Curl P.E.I. provincial under-16 curling championships on Thursday night.

The opening girls’ draw was played at Maple Leaf Curling Club in O’Leary, and the boys got their competition started at the Western Community Curling Club in Alberton.

The rest of the schedule for the five boys’ teams and eight girls’ rinks entered will be played in Alberton.

The boys are playing a round robin, with the top three teams advancing to the playoffs. The girls are playing a triple-knockout format, with a Page playoff.

MacFadyen started defence of last year’s championship by defeating Silver Fox clubmate Alex Gallant 10-0 in a game that lasted only six ends. In the only other boys’ game, Donald DeWolfe from Cornwall defeated the Devin Schut Cornwall/Charlottetown foursome 11-4 in seven ends.

Owen Collier and his Montague team had the opening-round bye. He will play DeWolfe on Friday at 10 a.m.

Lenentine, who switched positions with last year’s winning skip, Rachel O’Connor, had a closer game, defeating the Karlie Lewis rink from Alberton 7-4 in seven ends.

Other girls’ scores were Katie Worth (Cornwall) 10, Breanna Rayner (Maple Leaf) 6; Kaleigh MacKay (Crapaud/Montague) 10, Kristie Rogers (Cornwall) 0 (six ends), and Lauren Moerike (Charlottetown) 8, Maddison Moore (Silver Fox) 2 (five ends).
