Two round robin draws have been played and one, at 9:30 am Sunday, remains to be played at the PEI Under 13 Curling Championship at the Cornwall Curling Club. Some of the 12 teams entered have now played both of their round robin games, and others have played just one. One rink, the Nathaniel Shaw team from Montague, has two wins in the “H” pool and is assured a first-place finish in that pool, and will advance to the “A” section semi-finals of the three section championship round, with their next game at 1 pm Saturday.

Two teams, the Ella Lenentine rink from Cornwall, and the defending champion Clara Jack team from Cornwall and the Silver Fox, are tied at 1-0 atop the “S” pool, while the Anderson MacDougall squad from the Silver Fox are 1-0 in the “O” pool, and the Cruz Pineau foursome from the Silver Fox and the Charlottetown Curling Club are 1-0 in the “T” pool. The Pineau rink made it to the final last year, losing by a single point in a closely-fought battle.
In this event, all teams make it to the Championship Round, with the teams who come first in their pool going to the “A” section, the second place teams going to “B” and the third place to “C”. The semi-finals go at 1 pm Saturday and 9:30 am Sunday, with the finals in all three sections taking place at 1 pm Sunday. Games in this event are six ends.
