Truro rink captures men’s crown

SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. —

It came down to an exciting finish in the junior women’s final at the 13th annual Quality Inn-sponsored Fall Fling junior cashspiel at the Silver Fox Entertainment Complex on Sunday.

Katie Shaw and her Cornwall Curling Club team, which includes three members of last year’s winning rink, were trailing 4-2 after eight ends of play in the 10-end final. However, Shaw and her teammates scored a deuce in the ninth end to tie the game coming home without last-rock advantage against the Brooke Tracy foursome from the Gladstone Curling Club in Fredericton Junction N.B., and then managed to steal a deuce in the 10th end for the 6-4 win.
It wasn’t as close on the junior men’s side as the Calan MacIsaac squad from Truro, N.S., defeated the Rajan Dalrymple team from the Gage club in Oromocto, N.B., by a 9-2 score. A steal of three in the seventh end brought the game to an early conclusion.

The Calan MacIsaac-skipped rink from Truro, N.S., was the top junior men’s rink in the 13th annual Fall Fling junior cashspiel at the Silver Fox Entertainment Complex last weekend.
