CRAPAUD - The Shirley Berry-skipped rink from the Cornwall Curling Club went undefeated at 5-0, sweeping all three modified triple-knockout sections in the five-team senior women’s event. Berry’s undefeated record made a championship round at the Crapaud Community Curling Club unnecessary .
The Berry team, which also includes third stone Janice Murdoch, second stone Arleen Harris and lead Kim Nicholson, rallied to win the A section final 8-7 in an extra end over the Sharon Horne rink from the Western Community Curling Club in Alberton. Berry took a triple in the eighth end, and stole a single point in the extra end for the win.
They then defeated Cornwall clubmate Debbie Rhodenhizer and her rink 7-5 in the B final, before capturing their third section with a 10-8 victory over defending-champion Shelly Ebbett and her Charlottetown team, stealing a deuce in the final end for the win.
The Horne rink was the runners-up.
The Berry team advances to the 2018 Everest Canadian senior men’s and women’s curling championships in Stratford, Ont., from March 24 to 29.
