Meanwhile, PEI native and former Cornwall member Lauren Ferguson, now curling out of the Halifax Curling Club, and skipping a team in which includes Cate Fitzgerald from her U21 rink (which is skipped by Taylour Stevens), had to settle for the silver medal in the U18 Girl’s division. Ferguson, attending university in Halifax, advanced to the Sunday morning Girls’ semis, sporting a 3-1 win-loss record. Ferguson won that game 6-2 over Allyson MacNutt of Truro, but lost the close final in the 12-team event by a 7-5 score against Celia Evans of Oromocto NB, when Evans stole a deuce in the final end.
