The Provincial Under 13 Curling Championships wrapped up this afternoon at the Cornwall Curling Club, with the Cruz Pineau rink from the Silver Fox and Charlottetown curling clubs going undefeated in the event with a 4-0 record, and taking the “A” final. Their opponents, the Montague Curling Club team skipped by Nathaniel Shaw, played a much better game than the final score indicated, but the experienced Pineau and third Brayden Shaw, who were finalists last year as well, along with their front end for this event, Jack MacFadyen and Davis Nicholson, who normally play on the Chase MacMillan Canada Games Training Team out of Charlottetown, recorded a convincing win, under the guidance of coach Cory Snow. The Shaw rink also included third Brody Quinn, second Sean Peric, and lead Dean Hicken, with alternate Samuel Shaw and coach Kyle MacDonald.

The Sportsmanship award went to Brooke Lewis, lead on the Jorja McLellan rink from the Maple Leaf Curling Club in O’Leary. She had departed for O’Leary a few minutes earlier, so her three teammates collected the award for her.

Montague’s Nathaniel Shaw team clinches U13 playoff round “A” semifinal spot
Two round robin draws have been played and one, at 9:30 am Sunday, remains to be played at the PEI Under 13 Curling Championship at the Cornwall Curling Club. Some of the 12 teams entered have now played both of their round robin games, and others have played just one. One rink, the Nathaniel Shaw team from Montague, has two wins in the “H” pool and is assured a first-place finish in that pool, and will advance to the “A” section semi-finals of the three section championship round, with their next game at 1 pm Saturday.

Two teams, the Ella Lenentine rink from Cornwall, and the defending champion Clara Jack team from Cornwall and the Silver Fox, are tied at 1-0 atop the “S” pool, while the Anderson MacDougall squad from the Silver Fox are 1-0 in the “O” pool, and the Cruz Pineau foursome from the Silver Fox and the Charlottetown Curling Club are 1-0 in the “T” pool. The Pineau rink made it to the final last year, losing by a single point in a closely-fought battle.
In this event, all teams make it to the Championship Round, with the teams who come first in their pool going to the “A” section, the second place teams going to “B” and the third place to “C”. The semi-finals go at 1 pm Saturday and 9:30 am Sunday, with the finals in all three sections taking place at 1 pm Sunday. Games in this event are six ends.
