The Lou Nowlan rink from the Silver Fox in Summerside won the Maritime men’s masters curling championship in Rothesay, N.B., recently.
Nowlan, third stone Dave MacFadyen, second stone Earle Proude and lead Alan Montgomery went 4-1 (won-lost) to win the six-team men’s competition at the Riverside Country Club. Team Nowlan earned the right to represent the region at the upcoming nationals in Saskatchewan, but the rink has declined.
Nowlan clinched the Maritime title with a come-from-behind win over New Brunswick’s Gary Mitchell. The Island squad scored a deuce with hammer in the final eighth end to pull out the 7-6 win. That win clinched the best round-robin record and the Maritime title for the Nowlan rink.
Masters curling is open to curlers aged 60 and over.
Cornwall will host next year’s Maritime masters championships.
