The Syngenta 2020 PEI Under 18 Curling Championships at the Western Community Curling Club in Alberton, with three boy’s teams and an equal number of girl’s rinks taking part, continued on Saturday with the “B” event finals and the “C” semis. Neither the boy’s “A” section winner Mitchell Schut nor the girl’s “A” winner Rachel MacLean (both from Cornwall) won the “B” section final, with the Brayden Snow team from Charlottetown scoring three points in the final two ends to double the Schut squad 6-3, and the Katie Shaw team edging their clubmates the MacLean team 5-4.
Like the first two section finals, it will be Schut and Snow squaring off in the “C”, at 10:30 am Sunday. Snow advanced by virtue of winning the “B”, while Schut got there by beating the third team in the competition, skipped by Brock Rochford out of the Silver Fox, in the “C” semi-final. The winner of the “C” semi will have won two sections, giving them a “double life” in the championship round, winning the event if they take either game, while their opponent would have to win both.
There is a possibility of three separate section winners in the girl’s division, as the Clara Jack rink from Cornwall edged out “A” section winner MacLean 8-7 in the “C” semi-final and will face Shaw in the “C” final at 10:30 am Sunday. Shaw advanced to the “C” final by winning the “B”.
The winners from the three modified triple knockout sections of each event will advance to their respective two-game championship round on Sunday at 2:30 and, if necessary, 6:30 pm.
This year’s winning teams advance to the 2020 Canadian Under-18 Boys and Girls Curling Championships, Operated by Curling Canada, April 20-25, 2020 at the Countryside Arena, Sudbury, Ont.

Explanation for MA/WA and MB/WB:
1. One team wins all three qualifiers: Championship Round is not required.
2. One team wins two qualifiers. They play in both MA/WA and MB/WB (and win the event if they win either game), while the other winner plays in MA/WA (and has to win to advance to MB/WB).
3. If there are three separate winners: the team that played in the most qualifying games* plays in MB/WB and the other winners play off in MA/WA If there is a tie in number of qualifying games played, then the team that qualified earliest goes to MB/WB and the other two teams play off in MA/MB.
*Qualifying games have game number/letter highlighted in yellow on the schedule.
