Team MacDonald won all 3 round robin games to capture Cornwall’s Men’s Curling Club Championship. They defeated Team Gallant Saturday afternoon to earn a spot at the Provincials in O’Leary next month. It was a close game, but a score of 3 by MacDonald in the 4th end made the difference.

Team Kennedy 1

Arsenault had a 2-1 lead after 3 ends, then blew it open with a superb run-back double in the 4th to score 3, followed by a steal of 2 in the 5th. It was handshakes after 6 ends when Kennedy was heavy on a difficult draw.
