Jill Brothers beats Cornwall’s Veronica Smith to win her 4th consecutive Dave Jones Cashspiel

Jill Brothers and her Halifax team which includes PEI’s Erin Carmody at third,  beat Cornwall’s Veronica Smith rink by a 5-3 score in this afternoon’s final to win Brothers’ 4th consecutive Dave Jones Cashspiel at the Mayflower Curling Club in Halifax. A steal of two points in the sixth end gave Brothers the edge in a closely-fought contest. Smith advanced to the final after stealing her way to a 9-0 blanking of the Tanya Hilliard team from Halifax in the semi, and finishing round robin play with a 2-2 win-loss record.

The men’s event was won by Jamie Murphy of Halifax, who also won it in 2016. He edged Scott MacDonald of Kingston Ont. 7-6 in an extra end in the championship game. 16 men’s and 10 women’s teams took part in this year’s event.
