Playing in the  women’s “C” event final are Cornwall’s Veronica Smith rink, who are the two-time defending champions, and have already won the A and B sections of the modified triple knockout, and Charlottetown’s Jane DiCarlo team, who came from behind with stolen triples in the eighth and ninth end this afternoon to defeat the Jenny McLean rink from Cornwall by a 9-4 score. A win by Smith in tonight’s game would give her the championship, and the two game women’s championship round at 9 am and 2 pm on Wednesday would not be needed. If DiCarlo wins, she have to win both championship round games on Wednesday, while Smith would take the championship if she wins either game.

Alex MacFadyen and his team from Summerside’s Silver Fox Curling and Yacht Club stole a pair of deuces in ends seven and eight in a 9-4 win over the Matthew MacLean rink from the Cornwall and Maple Leaf curling clubs this afternoon, to advance to the 7 pm C event final against Tyler Smith from the Crapaud and Montague curling clubs. Smith won the B event on Monday, while MacLean took the A event on Sunday.

If Smith wins tonight, he would play in both championship games on Wednesday, and win the event if he takes either game, while his opponent, MacLean, would have to win both games. If MacFadyen wins tonight, he would play MacLean in the morning game, with the winner facing Smith at 2 pm (the rules specify that the team who played in the most section qualifier games would have the bye to the second game, and Smith was in all three qualifiers).

The men’s and women’s winners advance to the M&M Meat Shops Canadian Juniors, January 24 – February 1, 2015 in Cornerbrook NL.
