Two Junior Men’s, and two Junior Women’s draws are in the books following day one action at the 11th Annual Fall Fling Junior Cashspiel at the Silver Fox in Summerside. 12 Junior Men’s and an equal number of Junior Women’s teams are taking part in the event, which includes rinks from all four Atlantic Provinces, and seven teams from the Cornwall Curling Club.
There are only two undefeated teams in the Junior Women’s division, with the Sydney Howatt rink from Cornwall winning a close 5-3 game over the Alexis Burris team from Charlottetown, followed by a win against their Cornwall clubmates the Emily Sanderson rink. In the other round robin pool, the game that would determine the only other undefeated team went into an extra end between Kaylee Nodding from Bridgewater, and Annika Kelly from Charlottetown. Nodding scored 1 point with hammer for the 6-5 victory.
On the Junior Men’s side, four teams are still undefeated with 2-0 records: the Ryan Abraham rink from the Halifax Mayflower Curling Club, which includes Montague’s Brooks Roche at 3rd stone, the Alex MacFadyen squad from the host club, the Michael Donovan team from Curl Moncton, coached by Daryell Nowlan (son of Summerside’s Lou and Marg Nowlan), and the Liam Marin team from Saint John, which includes PEI Junior Champion skip Tyler Smith.
Round robin play wraps up on Saturday with junior men’s draws at 8 am and 1 and 6:30 pm, and junior women’s games at 10:30 am and 4 and 9 pm. The semi-finals go Sunday at 9 am, with the finals at 1 pm.

The Cornwall Curling Club is getting ready to host its 5th annual Masters Plus Bonspiel on Thursday November 23rd and Friday November 24th. Masters Plus teams include three curlers age 60 and over, and one who is at least 55. This year there is a full draw of 16 teams entered — representing six different curling clubs from Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. Off-Island teams are from Antigonish, CFB Halifax, and Sackville NS. Island teams are from Montague, Crapaud and Cornwall. Draws are 8:30, 11:00, 1:30 and 4:00 each day. The Judy Burgess rink from Truro, who won last year’s bonspiel, will not be back this year to defend their title, so there will be a new champion.
The Host Committee would really appreciate if anyone can voluntarily give up their locker for Thursday and Friday during the bonspiel and also want to thank the daytime, stick, and junior curlers at the Club for their cooperation as they will miss some regular curling draws and junior practices.
Curling fans are invited to take in the action as many of the teams have curlers who have won provincial titles. There is no charge to watch the curling.
