P.E.I.’s Suzanne Birt rink has not qualified for the championship pool at the 2021 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Calgary.
Team Birt dropped a 9-5 decision to British Columbia’s Corryn Brown in the final draw of the round-robin schedule Thursday night. The result left both teams with records of 4-4 (won-lost).

A win by the Birt rink, which lists Montague and Cornwall as its home clubs, would have guaranteed the P.E.I. representative at least a spot in a tiebreaker on Friday morning. The 18 teams comprise two nine-team pools and the top four at the end of round-robin play advance at the Canadian women’s curling championship.
