Team PEI, skipped by Gordon MacFadyen and representing the Summerside Fire Department, is still looking for its first win at the 59th Canadian Firefighters Curling Championship, taking place in Thunder Bay Ontario, after a tough start against back to back national champs. After losing their opener 9-5 on Saturday to Chad Stevens and his Chester Nova Scotia rink, who won the event in 2016, PEI then took on the defending champion Aaron Bartling rink from Alberta, on Sunday morning, losing 9-1, and then lost their afternoon game 10-6 to Quebec’s Ken McRae foursome. PEI plays the Northwest Territories (0-3) on Monday morning and has a bye in the afternoon draw.
NS and Alberta are atop the standings at 3-0 with Saskatchewan at 2-0. Quebec and Southern Ontario are 1-1, while BC is 1-2. NB, NWT and PEI are 0-3. Round robin play wraps up Thursday afternoon, with tiebreakers, if needed, and Page playoff games going Friday, and the semi-final going either Friday afternoon or Saturday morning. The final goes at 1 pm Eastern on Saturday.
