Donald DeWolfe, who curls out of the Silver Fox and Cornwall clubs, won this weekend’s One on One “Tuff Spiel”, sponsored by Wayne’s Auto Sales, at the Fox. Charlottetown’s Robbie Doherty was runner-up, while Mike Spencer won the Consolation division.

Panthers capture bronze at 2017 USports Curling Nationals (UPEI)

It was a productive day for Atlantic teams on the men’s side as UPEI Panther’s Chris Gallant edged the Regina Cougars and skip Sam Wills 7-6 to win the bronze medal. Gallant’s crew of Kyle Holland, Brooks Roche, Alex McFadyen and coach Larry Rathje scored the go-ahead deuce in the eighth followed up with a force in the ninth to lead by one coming home which is how it ended.

The Panthers began the week with a slow start after dropping their first two games, however, their luck would change as the Panthers finished round robin play going 4-1 and finishing with an overall record of 4-3. 

The Panthers would run into a tough Alberta team in the semi’s who was all business and the game was conceded after eight ends. 

This bronze marks the first time since 2010 when UPEI skipped by Brett Gallant (Chris’s brother) took home a silver medal at the then CIS National Championships

PEI’s Peter Gallant hopes to lead South Korean women curlers to Olympics (CBC PEI)

He’s played in nine Briers and done some coaching in the past — now Peter Gallant of P.E.I. is the national coach for Team South Korea at the world women’s curling championship, and eyeing the Olympics. 

“With the Olympics coming up in Korea in 2018, they were looking for a full-time Canadian coach to help them develop even further,” Gallant told CBC Radio: Island Morning’s Mitch Cormier from Beijing, China, where his team was competing Monday. 

If I can get to an Olympic games and help them to possibly medal, who knows? It’d be like a dream come true for me,” says coach Peter Gallant of P.E.I. with his South Korea women’s curling team. (Peter Gallant/Facebook)

Peter is the father of Brett Gallant, who’s part of the Brad Gushue team that won the Brier — the Canadian men’s curling championship — last weekend. 

Team Gushue had visited Korea twice to help develop the sport there, and that’s how Peter Gallant got the job, he said. 

“My name came up, the contacts were made, and it’s all worked out,” said Gallant, who’s now been coaching the EunJung Kim team for the last couple of years.

The open division champions were Haylett Clarke and John MacNaughton in an all Nova Scotia final.  The women’s division final was an all PEI event with Clarke/Stavert emerging as the winner over Craswell/Hughes in a very well played game which came down to the last rock in the final end. PEI has won the women’s event every year since the creation of the division in 2010 with Clarke/Stavert winning 6 of those titles.

Canadian Senior Men’s and Women’s Curling Ch’ships begin Monday in Fredericton (Curling Canada)

The 2017 Everest Canadian Senior Men’s and Women’s Curling Championships begin Monday, March 20 at Fredericton, N.B.

Willie O’Ree Place in Fredericton, N.B., will play host to the 2017 Everest Canadian Seniors, beginning Monday. (Photo, Mallory Donahue)

It’s the first time that the city has hosted both championships, but the 1980 Canadian senior women’s was played there, prior to the amalgamation of both events in 1985.

Fourteen men’s teams (representing the 10 provinces plus Northern Ontario, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Yukon) and 13 women’s teams (no Nunavut) will compete.

The teams have been seeded into two pools per gender, based on last year’s results, and will first play a round robin within their pool through Wednesday. Round-robin games will be played in both Willie O’Ree Place and the Capital Winter Club.

The Capital Winter Club also is hosting games in the 2017 Everest Canadian Seniors. (Photo, Mallory Donahue)

The top four in each pool then advance to the Championship Round for games against teams from the other pool, while the remaining teams go to the Seeding Pool. At the conclusion of the Championship Round on Friday, the semifinals will be held Saturday morning March 25 at 9:30 a.m., pairing 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3. The winners then advance to their respective gold-medal finals at 3 p.m. while the losers meet in bronze-medal games at the same time. All playoff games will be held in Willie O’Ree Place.

This year’s renewal brings together another strong women’s contingent, headed by Alberta’s Cathy King, a Scotties (1998), Canadian Seniors (2012), World Seniors (2013) and two-time (1977, 1978) Canadian Juniors champion, the only curler to accomplish this feat.

Saskatchewan’s Sherry Anderson, a former Scotties and Trials silver-medallist who made her Seniors debut last year, winning a silver medal after losing the final to Nova Scotia’s Colleen Jones, has returned, as has Ontario’s Jo-Ann Rizzo, who lost the 2016 Seniors bronze medal game to King and was the silver-medallist in the 2013 Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings Canadian Curling Trials at Winnipeg, when playing third for Sherry Middaugh.

Two-time (1995, 1998) Canadian Mixed champion Mary Mattatall, who recently skipped Nova Scotia in the 2017 Scotties Tournament of Hearts at St. Catharines, Ont., finishing with a 2-9 mark, makes her Seniors debut.

Skipping the host province is Kathy Hicks of the Capital Winter Club, seeking just a second title for New Brunswick. Skip Heidi Hanlon is the only one to do so, winning in 2011 and parlaying that into a World Seniors title in 2012.

The country’s best senior curling teams are headed to Fredericton, N.B.

On the men’s side, there is a number of skips with Brier experience, although not necessarily as skip — Newfoundland and Labrador’s Mark Noseworthy, Nova Scotia’s Alan O’Leary, Northern Ontario’s Robbie Gordon,), British Columbia’s Craig Lepine, Ontario’s Howard Rajala, Prince Edward Island’s Phil Gorveatt (who won the 1987 Canadian Mixed), Quebec’s Robert Maclean, Saskatchewan’s Darrell McKee, Yukon’s Pat Paslawski and New Brunswick’s Terry Odishaw (the 2007 Canadian Mixed champion), seeking a fourth title for his province, the latest by Wayne Tallon in 2013, who also went on to capture the 2014 World Seniors.

O’Leary won the 2014 Canadian Seniors at Yellowknife, was the silver-medallist in the 2015 World Seniors at Sochi, Russia, and last year earned a bronze in the Everest Canadian Seniors at Digby, N.S. Rajala was the silver-medallist in the 2013 Canadian Seniors at Summerside, P.E.I., losing the final to Tallon. Noseworthy was a bronze-medallist in the 1987 Brier at Edmonton.

The Canadian Senior Men’s Championship began in 1965 at Port Arthur, Ont. Since then, Manitoba has won a leading 12 titles, Ontario is next with 11 while Alberta has eight.

The Canadian Senior Women’s Championship began in 1973 in Ottawa. Ontario has won a leading 10 crowns, followed by British Columbia with eight and Alberta with seven.

The championships were conducted separately until being combined in 1985 at Yorkton, Saskatchewan.

The World Seniors officially began in 2002. Canada has won a leading nine men’s and 10 women’s titles. Since 2005, the winners of the Canadian Seniors have represented Canada in the following year’s World Seniors. Thus, last year’s winners — Ontario’s Bryan Cochrane and Nova Scotia’s Colleen Jones — will wear the Maple Leaf in the 2017 World Seniors, April 22-29 at Lethbridge, Alta.

This year’s winners will represent Canada in the 2018 World Seniors, at a site and date to be announced by the World Curling Federation.

Draw results for the 2017 Canadian Seniors will be available at www.curling.ca. For event information, visit http://www.curling.ca/2017seniors.

This is the third year of title sponsorship by Everest, the first nationwide funeral planning and concierge service.

Curling Panthers head to 2017 National Championships today (UPEI)

By Marshall Mayne

The University of Prince Edward Island is heading to the USports Curling Canada University Championships today. This year’s tournament will run from March 18-22 at the Fort William Curling Club in Thunder Bay, Ontario. 

Photo (L-R): MacFadyen, Roche, Holland, Gallant

The UPEI Panthers are skipped by Chris Gallant (Bachelor of Business Administration), third Kyle Holland (Bachelor of Business Administration), second Brooks Roche (Bachelor of Science), and lead Alex MacFadyen (Bachelor of Science).

The foursome placed third at the 2017 AUS Curling Championships in Truro, Nova Scotia in early February, coming back in dramatic fashion by stealing two and defeating the University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds 8-6 in an extra end. 

The Panthers will be represented at the national level for the fourth time in five years, however, this will be the first on the men’s side during that span. The Veronica Smith rink represented UPEI from 2013-2015. 

“Obviously, any time you get the opportunity to compete at the national level it’s special, said skip Chris Gallant following practice on Wednesday. It’s always nice to represent your school and wear the colours. We don’t play a full length season like a lot of the other teams so it’s nice to make it count.” 

Gallant returns to the Sports National Championships for the first time since 2014 when he played lead and represented the University of Manitoba Bisons. The Bisons would go on to defeat the University of Alberta Golden Bears 7-5 in an extra end. Gallant and the Bisons were invited by the Canadian Curling Association to represent Canada at the FISU 2015 Winter Universiade in Granada, Spain. 

After being to the USports Curling Championships before, Gallant knows how much time and preparation it takes to come out on top. 

“It’s a very busy time of the school year so we’re trying to get as much practice in as we can, added Gallant. University curling is a little different since most teams don’t play with each other all season, so it’s really important for the team to gel well and just click at the right time. Hopefully we have a good week and are still around come playoff time.”

The 2017 field consists of the AUS champion Memorial Seahawks, runner ups Dalhousie Tigers, and the bronze medalists UPEI Panthers. From the OUA the champions Laurier Golden Hawks, runner ups, Queen Gaels, and finally the host Lakehead Thunderwolves. Representing Canada West the champions University of Alberta Golden Bears, and the University of Regina Cougars.

Selected games from the 2017 U SPORTS/Curling Canada Curling Championships will be streamed at USPORTS.LIVE.
