Newson, who was a finalist in both the A and B sections of the modified triple knockout draw, and won the “C”, earned a bye to the final, while “A” section winner MacKenzie eliminated “B” winner Mitchell Schut from Cornwall with a 7-4 win in the morning semi-final to advance to the deciding game.

In the final, Newson, whose team includes third Melissa Morrow, second Andrew MacDougall, and lead stone Miranda Ellis, had a 4-1 lead at the fourth end break, scoring singles in the first two ends and a deuce in the fourth. MacKenzie, who was also a finalist last year, narrowed the gap to 1 with a deuce in the fifth, but a Newson triple in the sixth put him ahead 7-3. MacKenzie was kept to a single in seven, and ran out of rocks in the eighth.

The Jamie Newson rink from the Silver Fox and Charlottetown curling clubs, scored a single point in the eighth end after blanking ends four through seven, to edge the Mitchell Schut team from Cornwall 3-2 Sunday evening to win the “C” final of the PEI Mixed Curling Championships at the Western Community Curling Club in Alberton, and a bye to the 2 pm Monday championship game.

There were separate winners of each of the three modified triple knockout sections, with the Tyler MacKenzie rink from Charlottetown winning the “A”, Team Schut taking the  B, and Newson, along with third Melissa Morrow, 2nd stone Andrew MacDougall, and lead Miranda Ellis capturing the final section.

According to the rules, in the event that there are three section winners, the team that played in the most section finals gets the bye to the championship final. The Newson team, the only one to play in all three section finals, will now play the winner of the 10 am game between the MacKenzie and Schut foursomes, at 2 pm Monday, for the right to advance to the Canadian Mixed Curling Championships, November 5-10 2018 at the Fort Rouge Curling Club in Winnipeg.

Cornwall’s Mitchell Schut team wins PEI Mixed “B” final over Jamie Newson squad

The Mitchell Schut team from here at the Cornwall Curling Club, which includes second Nick Johnston from Schut’s Canada Games Training Team, along with clubmates Sydney Howatt at lead and Sierra Clyke at third from the Canada Games Training Team skipped by Howatt, have captured the “B” section final and a spot in the Monday championship round at the PEI Mixed Curling Championship being played at the Western Community Curling Club in Alberton.

After handing “A” section winner and last year’s runner-up Tyler MacKenzie his first loss of the event, by a 5-3 score, on Saturday afternoon, Schut beat the Jamie Newson team from the Silver Fox and Charlottetown clubs by a 6-4 score in the “B” final on Sunday morning. Schut started off the game by stealing a triple over Newson, who was kept to singles in the next two ends. Schut followed a 4th end single with a stolen 5th end deuce to lead 6-2. Newson took the next two ends, but ran out of rocks in the eighth.

Newson now plays MacKenzie, with Schut taking on Summerside’s Corey Miller, who downed the host club’s Daryl MacDonald rink 9-1 Sunday morning, in the 2 pm “C” semi-finals. The winners advance to the 6 pm “C” final.

The two game championship round against the section winners goes at 10 am and, if needed, 2 pm on Monday. If either MacKenzie or Schut advances to and wins the “C” final, they, as double section winners, would have to be beaten twice on Monday, so the second game in the championship round would be required if the other team won the first. If there are three separate section winners, the team that played in the most section finals would get a bye to the 2 pm game.

Nine teams, with representatives from all seven dedicated PEI curling clubs took part in this year’s event. The winning team advances to the Canadian Mixed Curling Championships, November 5-10 2018 at the Fort Rouge Curling Club in Winnipeg.

Cornwall Mixed Doubles Funspiel a big success and a lot of fun!

Our Mixed Doubles funspiel, which gave a full draw of 32 curlers a chance to try out Canada’s new Olympic Gold Medal Sport, with each team playing two games, was a big success on Saturday afternoon. Here’s a report from organizer Myrna Sanderson:

It was so amazing to see curlers of every stage in their career playing on Saturday afternoon.  From the very new curlers to us not so new curlers.  Thank you, everyone, for jumping in and making this afternoon such a fun experience!

Overall winners were the team of the young Katelyn Burgoyne and her not-so-young partner Garth Cudmore.

Runner-up was the husband and wife team of Danny and Darlene Kneabone.
Must do it again soon.

Tyler MacKenzie wins PEI Mixed “A” section, Cornwall’s Mitchell Schut vs Jamie Newson in “B” final

Saturday was a busy day at the nine-team PEI Mixed (fours)  Curling Championship at the Western Community Curling Club in Alberton, with the “A” section winner decided, and the finalists set for the 10 am Sunday “B” final of the Modified Triple Knockout draw.

The competition will be going into Monday, as there will be separate “A” and “B” winners, meaning no team can capture three sections. The Tyler MacKenzie team from Charlottetown, which includes Aleya Quilty, Doug MacGregor, and Jodi Murphy, and were finalists in last year’s PEI mixed, won the “A” section on Saturday morning, with a 6-1 win over Jamie Newson and his Silver Fox and Charlottetown team, stealing three singles in a row in ends four through six, to bring the “A” final to a speedy conclusion. Newson has a second chance to qualify for the Monday championship round, advancing to the “B” final with a 10-3 victory over the host club’s Daryl MacDonald team on Saturday evening.

MacKenzie did not advance to the “B” final, losing a 5-4 decision to Mitchell Schut from Cornwall in the afternoon draw. MacKenzie was trailing 3-0 after five ends, but picked up 4 in the sixth to take the lead. Schut blanked the seventh and scored a deuce in the final end for the win. Schut advanced to the “B” semi with a 9-6 win over Corey Miller from the Fox in the morning draw.

Schut now plays Newson in the “B” final at 10 am Sunday. The “C” semis go at 2 pm Sunday, with the “C” final at 6.

The winners of the three sections will advance to the championship round on Monday at 10 am and, if needed, 2 pm, with the PEI Mixed Champions then advancing to the Canadian Mixed Curling Championships, November 5-10 2018 at the Fort Rouge Curling Club in Winnipeg.

Newson, MacKenzie to meet in PEI Mixed “A” event final (Journal)

ALBERTON-It will be Jamie Newson against Tyler MacKenzie in the “A” section final of the P.E.I. Provincial Mixed Fours Curling championship in Saturday’s 10 a.m. draw at the Western Community Curling Club

Newson and his Silver Fox and Charlottetown Curling Club team of Melissa Morrow, Andrew MacDougall and Miranda Ellis scored a pair of lopsided victories on the opening day of the modified triple knock-out championship Friday at the Western Community Club. They started off with a 6-1 victory over the Freddy Fraser rink from the host club in the afternoon draw and scored a 10-3 victory over the Mitchell Schut Cornwall rink in the evening draw.

MacKenzie took a slightly longer path to the “A” final as both of his games Friday went to an extra end. He scored two with hammer in the morning draw for a 9-7 win over Calvin Smith from Crapaud, and he fought back from a 5-1 deficit at the fourth end break and was up 6-5 on Daryl MacDonald from the host club after seven ends. MacDonald tied the game in the eighth but MacKenzie and his Charlottetown rink of Jodi Murphy (lead), Doug MacGregor and Aleya Quilty got the single in the extra for a 7-6 win.

There are draws scheduled Saturday and Sunday at 10 a.m. 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. and, if necessary, Monday at 2 and 6 p.m.
