O’LEARY -- Dennis Watts and his Charlottetown Curling Club men’s team of Erik Brodersen, Andrew MacDougall and Doug MacGregor and the Maple Leaf Curling Club’s host women’s team of Bobbi-Jean Boylan, Amy MacMillan, Mary Hart and Sandra Jones have advanced to the respective finals of the P.E.I. Provincial Curling Club Championships.
The Dennis Watts team ran the table in the men’s round robin, going 6-0 to capture first place and the bye to the final of the three-team playoff. They will face the winner of the semi-final game between Team Silver Fox (Tim Hockin) and Team Montague (Matthew MacDonald). Both teams finished tied for second with 4-2 records.
In women’s round robin pool play, Bobbi-Jean Boylan’s Maple Leaf rink and the Mellissa Morrow rink from Silver Fox both finished with 4-1 records, but Boylan got the nod to the final based on her head-to-head victory Sunday morning over Team Morrow. The Tammy Dewar rink from Montague finished third with a 3-2 record, advancing to the semi-final against Morrow.
The semi-finals, weather permitting, are set for 10 a.m. Monday at the Maple Leaf Curling Club. The finals are on for 2 p.m., but, because a team that goes through round robin play undefeated needs to be beaten twice, there is a possibility of a winner-take-all game to determine the men’s provincial champion.
Rounding out the field and out of the playoffs are: women’s 4. Cornwall, 2-3; 5. Crapaud 1-4 and 6. Western, 1-4; and men’s, 4. Crapaud, 3-3; 5. Cornwall, 2-4; 6. Maple Leaf, 2-4 and 7. Western, 0-6.
