It’ll be the Alan Inman rink from the Crapaud Community Curling Club advancing to the 2 pm Men’s final of the PEI Travelers Curling Club Championships in Montague, following a 9-5 extra-end win over Daryl MacDonald and his team from the Western Community Curling Club in Alberton in this morning’s semi-final between the second and third place finishers from the round robin. The Inman squad, which also includes third Calvin Smith, second Nathan Hardy, and lead Nick Blanchard, finished round robin play in third place with a 4-2 record in the seven team field , and now face 1st place (5-1) Jamie Newson and his Silver Fox team in the 2 pm final, with the winner advancing to the national Travelers, with dates and venue yet to be announced.
MacDonald had a 3-0 lead after two ends in this morning’s semi, but Inman took the next four ends to lead 5-3. A pair of Western singles tied the game, but Inman took four points in the extra end for the win.
Meanwhile, Debbie Rhodenhizer and her Cornwall Curling Club rink advanced out of the first women’s tiebreaker, downing Western’s Sharon Horne foursome 9-2 in seven ends. Rhodenhizer faces Amanda Holm of Crapaud at 2 pm in the second tiebreaker, with the winner advancing to the 6 pm semi-final against Montague’s Tammy Dewar rink, who finished 2nd in the round robin. The semi winner then takes on the Melissa Morrow rink from the Silver Fox in the final at 10 am Tuesday. Morrow went through round robin play undefeated, and must be beaten twice, so if she loses the final, there will be a deciding game game at 2 pm Tuesday to determine the women’s champ.
