Under-13 championships begin Friday afternoon

CHARLOTTETOWN – P.E.I.’s youngest curling champions will be determined at the conclusion of the KFC provincial under-13 curling championships at the Cornwall Curling Club this weekend.

Play will get underway on Friday at 4 p.m., with the final and bronze-medal games going Sunday at 1:30 p.m. This year’s event is open entry, with any combination of boys and/or girls on a team. All games in the under-13 event are six ends.

In last year’s event, which had separate boys and girls divisions, the rink of Mitchell Schut, Parker MacFadyen, Nick Johnston and Draven Kowalski, with coaches Mike Schut and Butch McGee from the Cornwall club, went undefeated to win the boys’ title. Schut is back this year with a different team.

The Rob Corkum-coached team of Tegan Corkum, Elly Whitney-Coulter Maddison Moore and Gabrielle Gallant from the Silver Fox Curling and Yacht Club in Summerside also went undefeated to capture the girls’ championship.

Eight rinks are entered in this year’s event, and will play a triple-knockout format, qualifying four teams for a Page championship round, with the winner of the Page game between the first two qualifiers being declared the winner and the loser the runner-up.

Third place will go to the winner of the bronze-medal game between the third and fourth qualifiers.

Opening ceremonies will go Friday at 7 p.m., preceding the 7:30 p.m. draw. Saturday’s play is at 10 a.m., and 1:30 and 5 p.m., with the last two qualifiers for Sunday afternoon’s 1:30 championship round being determined at 10 a.m.
