The Lauren Ferguson rink from the Cornwall Curling Club, and the Tyler Smith foursome from the host Charlottetown Curling Complex both went undefeated, capturing all three divisions of the modified triple knockout draw, to win the junior women’s and men’s divisions at the Pepsi Provincial Junior (Under 21) Curling Championships without having to play the two-game championship round. The two teams now advance to the  2019 New Holland Canadian Junior Men’s and Women’s Curling Championships, to be played Jan. 19-27 in Prince Albert Saskatchewan, co-hosted by the Art Hauser Centre and the Prince Albert Golf and Curling Club.  

Smith won this morning’s junior men’s “C” final 8-3 over the Chase MacMillan team, while Ferguson edged Cornwall clubmate Annika Kelly 8-7 to win the junior women’s “C” event.

Other members of the Ferguson rink, who will also be competing in the Canada Games in Red Deer Alberta this season, are third Katie Shaw, second Alexis Burris, and lead Lexie Murray, with coach David Murphy. Completing the Smith squad, who are also signed up for the Tankard provincial men’s championship, which starts Jan. 9 in Alberton, are third Ryan Abraham, second stone Alex MacFadyen, and lead Ryan Lowery, with coaches Robbie Doherty and Kevin Smith. Also receiving trophies were the finalist teams, skipped by Rachel MacLean and Chase MacMillan.

Ferguson and Smith teams are each one win away from Pepsi Junior titles

The Lauren Ferguson junior women’s rink from the Cornwall Curling Club, and the Tyler Smith junior men’s team from the host Charlottetown Curling Complex remain undefeated following Saturday play at the Pepsi Provincial Junior (U21) curling championships, and can win their respective championships with a win in any one of their three games on Sunday – the  9 am “C” final and the playoff round games at 2 and 7 pm. Their opponents, the  Annika Kelly rink from Cornwall and the Chase MacMillan foursome from Charlottetown, would have to win all three to be declared champions.

In “C” semi-final play this evening, Ferguson was trailing clubmate Emily Sanderson by one point after eight ends, but scored a triple in the ninth and ran Sanderson out of rocks in the 10th for a 7-5 final score. Kelly advanced to Sunday play with a 9-2 win over Cornwall clubmate Rachel MacLean, while Smith beat Summerside’s Brayden Snow squad 8-2 in six ends. Chase MacMillan advanced to the “C” final by edging Cornwall’s Devin Schut 8-7 this afternoon, coming from behind with a 10th end triple.

Ferguson and Smith have swept both the A and B sections at the Pepsi Juniors

The Lauren Ferguson rink from Cornwall and the Tyler Smith team from the host Charlottetown Curling Club remain undefeated at the Pepsi Provincial Junior (U21) Curling Championships, winning both the A and B sections of the modified triple knockout draw, and putting them in both Sunday championship round games, where a win in either will give them the PEI junior title. In the event that they also advance to and win the “C” final on Sunday morning, they will be declared the champion without the two-game playoff round.

In this morning’s “B” finals, Ferguson beat Cornwall clubmate Rachel MacLean 10-6, while Smith downed Charlottetown clubmate Chase MacMillan 10-2 in seven ends.

Coming up at 2 and 7 pm are games in the “C” division, with Devin Schut of Cornwall playing MacMillan at 2, and Brayden Snow of Summerside facing Smith at 7 pm on the  Junior Men’s side. The winners of those two games advance to the 9 am Sunday “C” final. In the all-Cornwall Junior Women’s event, two teams are facing elimination this afternoon, with Clara Jack taking on Emily Sanderson, and Sydney Howatt facing Annika Kelly. The winner of the Jack vs. Sanderson game faces Ferguson, with the Howatt vs Kelly victor taking on Rachel MacLean, in the 7 pm “C” semi-finals, with the winners advancing to the 9 am Sunday “C” finals.

The championship round, if needed, goes Sunday at 2 pm and, if necessary, 7 pm.

The PEI champions will advance to the 2019 New Holland Canadian Junior Men’s and Women’s Curling Championships, to be played Jan. 19-27 in Prince Albert Saskatchewan, co-hosted by the Art Hauser Centre and the Prince Albert Golf and Curling Club.

Ferguson and Smith still undefeated, play in B finals at 9 am Sat. vs MacLean and MacMillan at Pepsi Juniors

The “B” finals of the modified triple knockout draw are set for 9 am Saturday at the Pepsi Provincial Junior (U21) Curling Championships at the Charlottetown Curling Club, and the “A” section winners Lauren Ferguson from Cornwall, and Tyler Smith from Charlottetown are still undefeated and will be in that game. If either team wins their second section, they will have a big advantage in their respective Sunday championship round, as they could win the event with a win in either of those two games, while their opponent would have to win both. Should either team win all three sections, their championship round would not be required.

All six junior women’s teams in the event are from the Cornwall Curling Club.

Lauren Ferguson

The Tyler Smith foursome from the host club won the junior men’s “A” qualifier with an 8-1 victory in six ends over the Brayden Snow foursome from the Silver Fox in Summerside, while the Lauren Ferguson squad were tied with their Cornwall clubmates the Rachel MacLean team after seven ends, but a steal of  four in the eighth gave Ferguson the advantage, and she went on to win 7-4.

Play continues with “B” section games at 2 pm. Ferguson and Smith also get to play in the “B” section in this modified triple knockout format and, if they win their games at 7 pm, will play in the B finals at 9 am on Saturday.

PEI’s Canada Games representatives, the Lauren Ferguson team, stole deuces in ends 7 and 8 to beat the Sydney Howatt squad 9-3 in their opening game, and then went into an intense come-from-behind battle with the Annika Kelly rink, where they trailed 6-3 after eight ends in the ten end contest. Ferguson took a triple in the ninth, and then stole a single in the 10th for a 7-6 win and a ticket to the “A” final.

On the men’s side, the Tyler Smith team from Charlottetown, who had a bye in the first draw, took control early in their game against their younger clubmates the Chase MacMillan rink, scoring five points in the first end, and went on to a 13-3 victory in six ends.

Other draws on Friday are at  2 and 7 pm, with the B and C finals going Saturday and Sunday at 9 am, respectively. Full schedule is on the event web page at: http://peicurling.com/juniors20182019/

10 teams to compete for Pepsi Provincial Junior curling titles in Charlottetown

The Pepsi Provincial Junior Men’s and Junior Women’s Curling Championships, for curlers in the Under 21 age category, take place at the Charlottetown Curling Complex from December 27-30, with six junior women’s and four junior men’s teams entered.  

There will be new winning skips this year, as reigning PEI junior women’s champ Lauren Lenentine is now curling on the defending World Junior championship Kaitlyn Jones rink out of Halifax, with Breanne Burgoyne and Rachel O’Connor from that team now curling on the Annika Kelly team, while Alex MacFadyen has moved from skip to second, and is on the foursome skipped by three-time PEI junior champ Tyler Smith.. Last year’s junior women’s runner-up team, and 2019 Canada Games girl’s team, skipped by Lauren Ferguson, is back in its entirety, while Mitchell Schut, skip of last year’s runner-up junior men’s squad and the 2019 Canada Games boy’s team, is back as fifth player on his brother Devin Schut’s team. All six junior women’s contenders, including the Kelly and Ferguson teams, along with the Sydney Howatt team with Howatt throwing skip stones and Sierra Clyke calling the game, plus the Clara Jack, Rachel MacLean, and Emily Sanderson rinks are from the Cornwall Curling Club, while the Tyler Smith and Chase MacMillan junior men’s teams are from the Charlottetown Curling Complex, the Braydon Snow team is from the Silver Fox in Summerside, and the Devin Schut rink curls out of Cornwall.

Teams in both the junior men’s and junior women’s sections will play a modified triple knockout draw, where the winning team from each section also gets to compete in the next section. If a team wins all three sections, they will win the event without a championship round. If a team wins two sections, they will advance to a championship game against the winner of the other section and will take the championship if they win the game. If the other team wins, there will be a second championship game, with the winner of that game going to the nationals. If there are three separate section winners, the team that played in the most section finals will earn a bye to the second championship game where they will face the winner of a game between the other two finalists.

Live results from the provincial championships will be available at PEICurling.com.

2. One team wins two qualifiers. They play in both X and Z (and win the event if they win either game), the other winner plays in Y (and has to win both games).

3. Three separate winners: the team that played in the most qualifying games* plays in Z and the other winners play off in X and Y. If there is a tie in number of qualifying games played, then the team that qualified earliest goes to Z and the other two teams play off in X and Y.
