Only two teams remain undefeated going into the 9 am Sunday draw at the PEI Travelers Curling Club Championships in Montague, and they’re both from the Silver Fox Curling & Yacht Community Complex in Summerside.

On the six-team women’s side, the rink of Melissa Morrow, Darcee Birch, Lindsey Spencer, and Miranda Ellis have recorded victories over Cornwall, Charlottetown, and Western (all at 1-2 win-loss) to sit at 3-0, and face Crapaud (1-2) at 9 am and Montague (2-1) at 4 in their final round robin games. The Montague team, skipped by Tammy Dewar, slipped from the undefeated ranks with an 8-6 loss to Cornwall in the 4 pm Saturday draw.

Meanwhile, Jamie Newson and his Summerside squad of Corey Miller, Patrick Ramsay, and Adam Arseneault are at 4-0 in the 7-team men’s division, following victories over Montague (1-3) and Charlottetown (2-2) on Friday, and Maple Leaf (0-4) and Western (3-1) on Saturday, and wrap up round-robin play against Crapaud (3-1) at noon and Cornwall (1-3) at 8 pm Sunday.
The top three women’s and men’s teams, following any tiebreakers that may be required, advance to their respective championship rounds, with second and third place teams playing off, and the winner facing the first-place team. If the first-place team is undefeated, they would have to be beaten twice, and an extra championship game would be necessary. If there are no tiebreakers in the women’s and/or men’s side, that division would wrap up on Monday with draws at 10 am, 2 pm, and, if needed, 6 pm. If tiebreakers are needed, there are also timeslots on Tuesday at 10 am and 2 pm.
The winning teams advance to the national Travelers Curling Club Championship, normally held in November. Dates and venue have not yet been announced.
