Rhodenhizer and her team of Nancy MacFadyen, mate; Sandra Sobey, second and Cindy Nicholson, lead, will meet the championship’s round robin winner, the Melissa Morrow rink from the Silver Fox in the 10 a.m. final on Tuesday. The catch is it’s only a final if Morrow wins. Because she went through the round robin undefeated (5-0), Morrow needs to be defeated twice in the playoffs to be denied the title. If Rhodenhizer wins the morning draw, her team gets to face Morrow and Co, Darcee Birch, third; Lindsey Spencer, second and Miranda Ellis, lead in a winner-take-all final Tuesday at 2 p.m.

Meanwhile, the men’s champion has already been determined. The Jamie Newson rink from the Silver Fox scored a 5-3 win over Crapaud’s Alan Inman foursome in the 2 p.m. final on Monday. Joining Newson at the nationals, at a date and place yet-to-be announced, are Corey Miller, Patrick Ramsay and Adam Arsenault. Newson, who had hammer in the first end, score singles in each of the first three ends. Inman got a deuce in the fourth, but Newson was up 5-2 following a steal of one in the seventh.
