Berry and Baglole share the lead after opening day at PEI Senior Women’s

Three draws are in the books after opening day play at the PEI Credit Unions Provincial Senior Women’s Curling Championships, for curlers age 50 and over, being played at Alberton’s Western Community Curling Club, with eight teams taking part. Four-time Seniors champ, and last year’s runner-up, Shirley Berry from the Cornwall and Charlottetown curling clubs, and Paula Baglole of the Silver Fox Curling and Yacht Club in Summerside share the lead, with 2-0 win-loss records.

Berry and her team beat last year’s champs, the June Moyaert rink from Montague 7-5 this evening, while Baglole handed clubmate Nola Murphy her first loss, by a 10-8 score. Playing with Berry this year are Sandy Hope, Shelley Ebbett, and Arleen Harris, while Baglole is playing with Debbie MacMurdo, Heather Bernard, and Norma Schurman.

Teams with one win and one loss are skipped by Debbie Rhodenhizer of Cornwall, Moyaert, Murphy, and Sharon Horne from the host club. Karen Currie of Cornwall and Karen MacDonald of Charlottetown are 0-2 after opening day.

Triple-knockout play continues on Saturday at 9 am and 2 and 7 pm. The A section finalist will be determined in the 2 pm draw. Sunday games will be at 11 am, which includes the B section final, and 4 pm, with the C winner determined in the 10 am Monday draw, and the section winners advancing to the two game championship round, Monday at 3 pm, and, if required, Tuesday at 2 pm.
