The Tyler MacKenzie rink from the Charlottetown Curling Complex broke a tie with a three point eighth-end for a 7-4 win over Cornwall’s young Mitchell Schut team this morning to win the PEI Mixed semi-final and advance to the 2 pm final against the Jamie Newson foursome from the Silver Fox and Charlottetown clubs.

As the three teams had each won one modified triple knockout section in the 9-team competition taking place at the Western Community Curling Club in Alberton, Newson got the bye to the championship game by having played in all three section finals.
This afternoon’s winner will advance to the Canadian Mixed Curling Championships, November 5-10 2018 at the Fort Rouge Curling Club in Winnipeg.
