It not only came down to the last rock, but they had to measure to determine the winner as the Kim Aylward rink from the host Silver Fox Entertainment Complex in Summerside staged a thrilling come-from-behind victory. Aylward trailed 5-2 after six ends, but scored a triple in the seventh end and stole a single in the final end to edge the Shelley Ebbett team from the Cornwall Curling Club 6-5.
Also on Monday, the Philip Gorveatt rink from the Charlottetown Curling Complex and the Montague Curling Rink won the provincial senior men’s title after edging the Dale Cannon team from the host Silver Fox Curling Club in Summerside by a 4-3 score.
Both the Aylward and Gorveatt rinks will represent P.E.I. at the 2019 Everest Canadian senior curling championships at the new Chilliwack Curling Centre in Chilliwack, B.C., from March 23 to 28.
