Adam Casey rink wins PEI Tankard (Journal)

ALBERTON – The Adam Casey rink won the 2015 P.E.I. Tankard.

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 scored one point in the extra end to pull out a 7-6 win over Jamie Newson at the Western Community Curling Club early Tuesday afternoon. Since Casey had won the B and C sections of the modified triple-knockout format in the P.E.I. men’s curling championship, Newson needed to win to force a sudden-death final at 3:30 p.m.

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.
