Both PEI curling teams picked up wins in Thursday’s 1 pm Atlantic time draw against the Northwest Territories at the Canada Games in Red Deer, with the Lauren Ferguson girl’s rink blanking the NWT team by a 10-0 score, and the Mitchell Schut boy’s team picking up their first win of the event, by a 7-1 score. Ferguson cracked open the scoring with a four-point third end, and stole 1, 2, and three points to bring the game to handshakes after six ends.

Schut’s game also went six ends, with the Island squad picking up a pair of deuces for a 4-0 lead after two ends. NWT grabbed a single in the 4th, but a Schut deuce and stolen single brought the game to an early conclusion. Ferguson has a 3-6 record, while Schut sits at 1-8 win-loss going into their final round robin games, Friday at noon Atlantic against New Brunswick, with these games shown on live stream at https://canadagames.live/curling
