Team Canada successfully recovered from their 3 point deficit after Friday play, by winning three out of their four games this morning at the Cornwall Curling Club, to pull ahead by four points and lead 238 to 234 going into afternoon play as the men’s CanAm Cup of Curling continues its PEI tour. To quote Team USA, “Our point streak came to an end as we hit a (Corn)wall. Great folks and lunch though!”.
Team Kneabone counting four behind a wall of guards
Highlights from this morning’s action included Cornwall’s Danny Kneabone foursome, down three points coming home, picking up 4 points in the last end for a 9-8 win, and the Angus Kennedy squad, after losing singles in the first two ends, won the next six, including a tough angle raise to the button in the final end for an 8-2 victory. Mark MacDonald and his rink of seasoned curlers had an 8-2 lead after six ends, before giving up four points in the seventh to USA’s Team O’Connor, and ending up with an 8-6 win. Team Canada’s Greg Groves rink were down 3-0 after four ends, but came back to tie the game after six ends of play. Team USA’s Packard team took a triple in the seventh, and held Groves to a single in the final end, to give the Americans their only win of the morning by a 6-4 score.
Team USA is back on the ice at 2 pm, at the Charlottetown Curling Club.
