P.E.I. was eliminated from playoff contention Friday at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Moose Jaw, Sask.
The Suzanne Birt-skipped rink from the Montague Curling Club lost 6-5 to Northern Ontario (Krista McCarville) and 5-3 to Canada (Chelsea Carey) in championship round play. They completed the week in a three-way tie with Canada and British Columbia (Corryn Brown) for sixth with a 5-6 record.
The P.E.I. squad included vice-skip Marie Christianson, second Meaghan Hughes, lead Michelle McQuaid and coach Mitch O’Shea.
When Suzanne Birt's career is over, her stats from the Scotties will not do her justice. Her teams never give up, always seem to stick around and usually find a way to make the other teams grind late in games. #Respect @teambirt #STOH2020— From The Hack (@FromTheHack) February 21, 2020
Manitoba, skipped by Kerri Einarson, will play the Jennifer Jones-skipped wild card entry Saturday at 8 p.m. Atlantic with a berth in Sunday’s 8 p.m. final on the line. The loser will play the winner of the Ontario-Northern Ontario match (Saturday at 3 p.m.) in Sunday afternoon’s semifinal. Rachel Homan is the Ontario skip.
