The defending champion Mel Bernard rink from the host Silver Fox Curling and Yacht Club stole a single in the first end, and a deuce in the second to grab an early lead, and went on to defeat Montague's Donald Clarey foursome by a 7-3 score to win the fourth annual Provincial Senior Mixed Curling Championships this afternoon. Bernard, with teammates Jeanne Duffenais, Earle Proude, and Paula Baglole, advanced to the championship game by winning this morning's semi-final against clubmate and last year's runner-up Blair Jay, also from the Fox, by a 5-4 score. Clarey, Bernard, and Jay all finished round robin play with 3-1 records, but the draw to the button results gave first place, and the bye to the final to Clarey. Other members of the runner-up Clarey foursome are Kathy Clarey, Ross Petrie, and June Moyaert, while Lana Fraser, Douglas Simmons, and Debbie MacMurdo round out the third place Jay team.
Finishing out of the playoff round were the Harry Williams rink of Summerside, with a 1-3 win-loss record, and Cornwall's John DeLuca team, who did not manage to pick up a win.
