MacPhee stole seven points en route to a 9-4 win over Nova Scotia’s Mary Mattatall in the morning draw.
Team P.E.I., which curls out of the Charlottetown Curling Complex, then prevailed in a back-and-forth game against British Columbia’s Marla Mallett 8-7 on the final shot of the afternoon contest by MacPhee. Mallett dropped to 0-6 with the loss.

PEI Under 18 Ch’ships start Friday in Charlottetown

The 2017 Provincial Under 18 Curling Championships are being held at the Charlottetown Curling Complex from February 24-27, with six girls and five boys teams entered. Live results will be available at peicurling.com/scoreboard/#!/competitions/2332

Last year’s winners were the Tyler Smith foursome from Crapaud, Charlottetown and Montague, and the Lauren Lenentine team from Cornwall. Lenentine, who skipped the Under 21 provincial championship team this season, is back. Ryan Lowery is the only returning member from the Smith rink.

This year’s teams will play modified triple knockout formats, advancing the section winners to their respective two-game championship rounds. If a team wins two section finals, they will play in both games, and win the title if they win either game, while the other section winner would have to win both games. If a team wins all three section finals, the championship round will not be played.

The winning U18 teams earn the right to compete in the inaugural Canadian Under 18 Boys and Girls Curling Championship, operated by Curling Canada, April 18 to 22 at Curl Moncton and on arena ice at Moncton’s Superior Propane Centre.

It was P.E.I.’s only game of the day.
Team MacPhee’s record is 0-4 (won-lost) at the Canadian women’s curling championship.

On Tuesday they play Nova Scotia’s Mary Mattatall and British Columbia’s Marla Mallett.

Team Canada edges PEI in Scotties extra end, MacPhee plays Quebec in lone game Monday (Journal)

ST. CATHARINES, ONT. – A late rally by the Robyn MacPhee rink fell just short on Sunday night.

The P.E.I. representative from the Charlottetown Curling Complex scored three in the 10th end to tie Team Canada’s Chelsea Carey 7-7 in a round-robin game at the 2017 Scotties Tournament of Hearts. However, Carey, who had the hammer, counted a single point in the extra end to pull out an 8-7 win to improve to 2-1 (won-lost) at the Canadian women’s curling championship.

Team MacPhee (0-3), which is coached by Les Rogers and also includes third stone Sarah Fullerton, second stone Meaghan Hughes, lead Michelle McQuaid and fifth player Rebecca Jean MacDonald, will look for its first win against Quebec’s Eve Bélisle (1-2) on Monday at 3:30 p.m., Atlantic Time. It is P.E.I.’s only game on Monday.

The P.E.I. representative from the Charlottetown Curling Complex lost 9-4 to the Kerry Galusha of the Northwest Territories in its opening game of the 2017 Scotties Tournament of Hearts on Saturday night.
Galusha, third stone Megan Koehler, second stone Danielle Derry and lead Sharon Cormier had to go through the relegation round just to qualify for the main draw at the Canadian women’s curling championship.
MacPhee, third stone Sarah Fullerton, second stone Meaghan Hughes and lead Michelle McQuaid face two tough games on Sunday. They will take on Ontario’s Rachel Homan at 3:30 p.m., and Team Canada’s Chelsea Carey at 8:30 p.m.

Homan captures Ford Hot Shots title, MacPhee finishes 3rd, pockets $1000 (Curling Canada)

ST. CATHARINES, Ont. — Rachel Homan had just signed the paperwork for a two-year lease for a 2017 Ford Escape SE when she issued a challenge to the men who will be competing at the upcoming Tim Hortons Brier in St. John’s.

 Rachel Homan and her team celebrate her Ford Hot Shots victory with Mike Herniak, General Manager-Eastern Area for Ford of Canada. (Photo, Curling Canada/Andrew Klaver)

Homan, who won the competition here at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts with an outstanding 21 out of 25 points, said if the men don’t beat her total, she should get that Ford vehicle as well.

That won’t happen, of course, but Homan shot the lights out during the final of the Ford Hot Shots at the Meridian Centre, beating Ontario teammate Emma Miskew 21-11.

“I missed the easiest one, too – brutal,” said Homan of the drag-effect takeout.

Homan, who also won the 2013 Ford Hot Shots competition and followed up by winning her first of two Scotties titles, scored two-out-of-five on that shot, then went on a roll, nailing the Al Hackner double and the Sandra Schmirler in-off. After getting four out of five on the raise tapback, she sent granite flying in the around-the-horn triple.

Four of the five shots were takeouts, which plays right into the strength of Homan’s game. That’s not to say there are weaknesses elsewhere though.

“Yeah, I like throwing takeouts once or twice a year maybe” she said with a laugh. “It’s fun and fun for the fans to watch all the rocks in play and the different angles. It’s nice to get those big-name shots – the Hackner, the Schmirler. It’s fun to play them and be a part of that history in curling. A fun day.”

Hackner, skipping Northern Ontario in the final of the 1985 Brier, made his famous steep-angle thin double-takeout against Alberta’s Pat Ryan to score two in the 10th end and force an extra end in which Hackner stole the winning point.

Schmirler, meanwhile, scored a game-turning three in the final of the 1997 Olympic Trials in Brandon, Man., against Alberta’s Shannon Kleibrink by making a tough in-off to remove a Kleibrink stone sandwiched between two Schmirler stones in the four-foot.

Kleibrink, skipping Alberta at this Scotties, held the broom for Miskew in the final.

Miskew won $2,000 for second place. In the third-place game, Robyn MacPhee of Prince Edward Island defeated Sarah Potts of Northern Ontario 13-10. MacPhee won $1,000.

Scotties: New Brunswick a step closer to qualifying (Curling Canada)

ST. CATHARINES, Ont. — Five hours after clinching spots in the final of the pre-qualifying event at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts, Kerry Galusha of the Northwest Territories (Yellowknife) and Melissa Adams of New Brunswick (Fredericton) had a dress rehearsal Friday afternoon.

The win went to Adams, who is showing no signs of stage fright. The 1998 world junior champion, who is making her first appearance at the Scotties, defeated Galusha 9-4 in the final game of the pre-qualifying round-robin.

The two will tangle again Saturday at 3:30 p.m. Atlantic Time at the Meridian Centre. The winner joins 11 of the best teams in Canada in the Scotties round-robin.

The crowds will be much bigger and louder with the final being played alongside three games from the main draw. Included will be one between defending champion Chelsea Carey and two-time winner Rachel Homan. The 5,300-seat arena will be rocking.

The win gave Adams, vice-skip Jennifer Armstrong, second Cathlia Ward, lead Katie Forward, alternate Jillian Keough and coach Mark Ward, last rock in the first end of the final. They will also get to choose their rock colour.

“Those are two important things,” Adams said. “It doesn’t mean tomorrow will be any easier by any means. We have to play well.”

The importance of Saturday’s final is not lost on Adams.

“There is a lot of pressure because the winner gets to stay and enjoy all this and the loser goes home. That’s a lot of pressure. We’re going to go out there and play like we can, do our best and see what happens. We’re going to enjoy every minute of it.”

In Friday’s round-robin final, Adams cracked a three-ender in the sixth end to break a 2-2 tie. A steal of two in seven and two more in nine led to handshakes.

The Yukon’s Sarah Koltun defeated Nunavut’s Geneva Chislett 13-1 in the other game. Koltun leaves the competition with a 1-2 record, while Chislett was 0-3.
