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, is down to the Championship Round, beginning at 2:30 pm, with a second game in each division, if necessary, at 6:30. The Brayden Snow team from Charlottetown beat the two-time defending champion Mitchell Schut squad from Cornwall 6-3 in both the “B” and “C” qualifier games, and will have a “double life” in the boy’s championship round, winning the event if they take either game, while “A” winner Schut will need to win both.
In the girl’s section, the Katie Shaw team, which contains three members of last year’s winning rink, is one game away from taking the title, having won the “B” and “C” qualifiers with a 5-2 victory over their clubmates the Clara Jack team in the “C” final. The Rachel MacLean team, also from Cornwall, who won the “A”, will need to win both championship round games to be declared the winner, while Shaw only needs to take one match.
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.
