Silver Fox, Montague advance to PEI Travelers Women’s Ch’ship round, tiebreakers needed for final team

The six-team women’s round-robin wrapped up with the 4 pm Sunday draw at the provincial Travelers Curling Club Championships in Montague, with Melissa Morrow and her Silver Fox rink finishing undefeated with a perfect 5-0 record, beating the 2nd place Tammy Dewar rink from the host club by a 6-1 score in that draw and earning a bye to the final game. Morrow is a former Travelers Canadian champion, playing second stone on the 2015 winning team, skipped by Carolyn Coulson out of Cornwall. Dewar ‘s win-loss record is 3-2. There are three teams tied for third place with Crapaud,  Western, and Cornwall all at 2-3, necessitating a tiebreaker round on Monday to determine the final playoff spot. Charlottetown, at 1-4, is the only team to finish out of playoff contention.

Melissa Morrow – 1st place finisher in the round robin

Tammy Dewar – round robin 2nd place finisher

Cornwall, skipped by Debbie Rhodenhizer, takes on Sharon Horne and her Western rink in the first tiebreaker, at 10 am Monday, with the winner facing Crapaud, captained by Amanda Holm, at 2 pm. The winner of that game takes on second place Montague in the 2nd vs 3rd championship round match at 6 pm Monday.  The winner will play Morrow at 10 am on Tuesday. As Morrow went through the round robin undefeated, she has to be beaten twice, so if her team loses at 10 am, a deciding game will go at 2 pm on Tuesday. The eventual winner advances to the Canadian Travelers Curling Club Championship at a date and venue yet to be announced.

The 7-team men’s round-robin wraps up with the 8 pm Sunday draw. Three teams – Silver Fox, Western, and Crapaud, sit at 4-1 and can’t be caught by the other teams, so the draw will determine which of these teams finish in which order in the championship round.
