Jamie Newson calls a shot while opposing skip Adam Casey follows the play during the final game of the 2015 P.E.I. Tankard provincial men’s curling championship in Alberton on Wednesday afternoon. Casey pulled out a 7-6 extra-end win.
Casey, who is from Seven Mile Bay, did not have to throw his final shot in the extra end as Newson, on his second shot, attempted to bury a rock and rubbed on a guard out front.
Newson, who made a perfect open draw for two in the 10th end to force an extra end, rallied from a 5-2 deficit after five ends as Casey took full advantage of the hammer to score a pair of deuces in the first half of the game.
