Detailed breakdowns of the day’s events are below.

It was a busy day today at the U16 Provincial Curling Championships in Montague, with the morning draw holding qualification games for the finals in the afternoon. 

The Gold Medal qualifiers resulted in wins for Team Pater and Team Myers. Team Pater cruised to a 7-1 victory over Team Beaton to claim their spot in the final, while Team Myers, after giving up a three in the second to Team Brothers, stole their way to the final with a score of 6-3. Not all was lost for Teams Beaton and Brothers, as they moved on to play for the Bronze Medals. 

In consolation qualification, Team Savill stole away the victory over Team Gavin Shea with a score of 9-0, all the result of stolen points, while Team MacLean claimed an 8-3 victory over Team Landry, aided by a score of 5 in the third. This set up a consolation final match of Savill vs MacLean and a 7-8 seeding game of Gavin Shea vs Landry. 

The final games were full of excitement, with so far undefeated Team Pater facing off against clubmates Team Myers in the Gold Medal Final. Pater would continue their dominance, only allowing singles to be scored against them as they claimed the title with a score of 6-2 after five ends. 

Team Beaton started with a commanding lead in the Bronze Medal game, taking two in the first and claiming back-to-back-to-back steals. The early lead proved to be too large to overcome for Team Brothers, so Team Beaton would claim victory and take home the Bronze Medals. 

In the Consolation game, Team MacLean would steal the win over Team Savill, as they posted steals in the third, fourth, and fifth to claim the victory 5-1.

In the 7-8 seeding game, Team Landry pulled through with a 8-1 victory over Team Gavin Shea, winning their first and claiming the 7th spot in the championship.
