The Crapaud Community Curling Club duo of Calvin Smith and Lauren Ferguson beat Cornwall’s Sydney Howatt and Nick Johnston team 6-4 this afternoon to win the 2018 PEI Mixed Doubles Championship, the two person version of curling that is now an Olympic sport. Smith/Ferguson won two of the three modified triple knockout sections, which gave them a “double life” in the 2 game championship round, as a win in either game would have given them the championship, but they did it on the first try. In the final game, they built up a 4-0 lead after three ends, taking a single, and stealing another single and a double. Howatt/Johnston came back with a pair of singles, and the teams traded deuces in ends six and seven, but the Cornwall team ran out of rocks in the final end.
