The defending Ted MacFadyen rink from the Silver Fox Curling and Yacht Community Complex in Summerside has now won both the B and C sections at the PEI Master Men’s Curling Championship, for curlers age 60 and over, and will have two opportunities to repeat as champion, at 10 am and 2 pm Monday at the Maple Leaf Curling Club in O’Leary. His opponent, the A section winner – Bill Hope and his Charlottetown/Cornwall rink, would have to win both games to take the title.

MacFadyen was fast out of the gate in today’s “C” final of the modified triple knockout draw, taking four points in the first end against the host club’s Clair Sweet, and followed it up with a stolen triple in the second end. A triple in the sixth meant it was handshake time, with an 11-4 final score. MacFadyen beat Hope 6-2 in the “C” semis, while Sweet eliminated Summerside’s Dale Cannon by a 5-3 score.
The defending champion Sandy Hope rink from Cornwall have won the women’s championship by default, as they were the only entry.
The Sandy Hope rink and the winning and runner-up men’s teams advance to the Maritime Masters, March 16-18 at the Silver Fox Curling and Yacht Community Complex in Summerside.
The winning Men’s and the Sandy Hope Women’s team also earn the right to compete in the Canadian Masters, April 3-9 in Guelph, Ontario.
