Summerside rink unable to compete in playoffs due to weather forecast
SUMMERSIDE – A junior boys’ curling rink from the Silver Fox in Summerside had a strong showing in Nova Scotia last weekend.
The Shelley MacFadyen-coached team, comprised of skip Brayden Snow, third stone Cruz Pineau, second stone Brock Rochford and lead Anderson MacDougall, registered a 3-0 (won-lost) record in round-robin play in the Earl MacKinnon Classic. Games were played in Kentville and Berwick.
Unfortunately, due to the forecasted weather for the Maritimes on Sunday, Team Snow pulled out of the playoff round and headed home early.
The Snow rink opened the round robin with a 5-2 win over Team Spicer. The local foursome followed that up with an exciting 6-5 come-from-behind win over Team Fitzgerald in a game they trailed 5-1 entering the final two ends.
Team Snow then closed out the round robin with a 6-2 decision over Team Lockhart.
