The Cornwall Curling Club team skipped by Debbie Rhodenhizer has won their fourth game in a row, and have forced a 2 pm deciding game in the PEI Travelers Curling Club Championships at the Montague Curling Rink. On Tuesday morning they handed the Melissa Morrow rink from the Silver Fox their first loss in the event, by a 5-4 score in an extra end.

Morrow had a 3-2 lead after four ends, aided by a stolen third-end deuce, but single steals in ends six and seven gave the Cornwall team a 4-3 lead going into the eighth end. Morrow was kept to a single in eight, forcing the extra end, where Rhodenhizer, with last rock advantage, stored the winning point. The rules state that Morrow, because she went through the round robin undefeated, has to be beaten twice, so a winner-take-all final goes at 2 pm. The winning women’s team goes to the national Travelers Curling Club Championship, with dates and venue yet to be announced.
They’ll be joined by the Jamie Newson rink from the Silver Fox, who won the men’s title on Monday afternoon, with a 5-3 win over Alan Inman and his Crapaud team. Click for more.
