Cornwall women taking on Western in “must win” Travelers tiebreaker this morning

The six-team women’s round-robin wrapped up with the 4 pm Sunday draw at the provincial Travelers Curling Club Championships in Montague, with Melissa Morrow and her Silver Fox rink finishing undefeated with a perfect 5-0 record, beating the 2nd place Tammy Dewar rink from the host club by a 6-1 score in that draw. Dewar ‘s win-loss record is 3-2. There are three teams tied for third place with Crapaud,  Western, and Cornwall all at 2-3, necessitating a tiebreaker round on Monday to determine the final playoff spot. Charlottetown, at 1-4, is the only team to finish out of playoff contention.

Cornwall, skipped by Debbie Rhodenhizer, along with third Nancy MacFadyen, second Sandra Sobey, and lead Cindy Nicholson, takes on Sharon Horne and her Western rink in the first tiebreaker, at 10 am Monday, with the winner facing Crapaud, captained by Amanda Holm, at 2 pm. The winner of that game takes on second place Montague in the 2nd vs 3rd championship round match at 6 pm Monday.  The winner will play Morrow at 10 am on Tuesday. As Morrow went through the round robin undefeated, she has to be beaten twice, so if her team loses at 10 am, a deciding game will go at 2 pm on Tuesday. The eventual winner advances to the Canadian Travelers Curling Club Championship at a date and venue yet to be announced.
