Bill Hope wins Men’s Masters title, Sandy Hope forces 1:15 pm (new time) deciding game vs. Berry

A triple in the sixth end and a single steal in the eighth for Bill Hope and his Cornwall Curling Club team on Monday morning at the Montague Curling Club has ended Lou Nowlan’s 10-year winning streak (he’s won 15 times in total) at the PEI Masters Men’s Curling Championship, for curlers age 60 and over. Final score: 8-6, Nowlan had a 6-4 lead after 5 ends. Hope won two modified triple knockout sections at the championship and only needed one win today, while Nowlan, who won the other section, would have needed to win both. 

Winning team (L-R): Bill Hope (skip), Peter Murdoch (3rd), David Murphy (2nd), Dario Zannier (lead), from the Cornwall Curling Club

Finalist Team (L-R): Lou Nowlan (skip), David MacFadyen (3rd), Earle Proude (2nd), Alan Montgomery (lead). Missing: Rod MacDonald (alternate). From the Silver Fox Curling Club

Meanwhile, 5-time defending champion Sandy Hope has forced a deciding game at 1:15 pm (new time) in the Masters Women’s competition, after edging Cornwall clubmate Shirley Berry (who won two of the mod. triple knockout sections), by  6-5 score, with the help of a 4-point fourth end. 

The Bill Hope rink and the winning women’s team,  or the finalist team if  unable to attend, earn the right to compete in the 2021 Canadian Masters Curling Championships, November 17-21, 2021 at the Pembina Curling Club in Winnipeg, Man.

Four men’s and three women’s teams began play Friday in this event.

2 curlers on P.E.I. ‘fortunate’ they can prepare for national championships (CBC PEI)

It’s going to be an odd curling season, all jammed into a few months in one location in Calgary, with many curlers across the country unable to train beforehand because of COVID-19 lockdowns.

Two P.E.I. curlers on their way to national championships feel lucky that they are able to get on the ice.

“I’m fortunate here because I’m in Prince Edward Island so the curling clubs are open aside from the two-week shutdown we had in December,” said Alison Griffin, who will curl for Team Nunavut at the Scotties.

“I’m able to practice almost daily and I play in a couple of leagues. Two of my teammates are also in provinces or territories where they’re able to be on the ice. We’re pretty fortunate. Some teams are struggling with the lockdown to get on the ice.”

Adam Casey (Curl Manitoba photo)

That’s the situation for Adam Casey’s team. He’s with Team Manitoba for the Brier and his teammates are in that province. The rinks are closed there.

“We’ve been so fortunate that I’ve been able to get out and throw,” said Casey.

In fact, he said, with no competing his practice has been more focused, which is not to say he likes it this way.

“You miss the competition,” he said, but he had to think carefully about whether he was ready to make the commitment to participate.

“There was a ton of, just, uncertainty about whether it would go ahead.… And obviously there’s the family side of it with the two-week isolation side of it and a young daughter at home. It puts a lot of stress on the family life, but excited to be able to curl.”

Team Gunnlaugson with PEI’s Adam Casey again representing Manitoba at the Brier

Just before Christmas, CurlManitoba announced that it was cancelling their provincial men’s, women’s, and mixed doubles championships scheduled for February of 2021. They had previously announced the appointment criteria for teams to represent Manitoba at the national events in the event that provincials had to be cancelled.

Last year’s Manitoba representatives at the Tim Hortons Brier, Team Jason Gunnlaugson, which includes PEI’s Adam Casey, accepted their invitation and will be making a return trip to the Brier, , Mar. 6-14, 2021, at the Markin MacPhail Centre, in Calgary, while Team Jennifer Jones will be representing the province at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts at the same venue in February. Fifth Lisa Weagle will be sitting in for Jones’ lead Dawn McEwen, who is pregnant and expecting in April, and has decided not to compete in the Calgary curling “bubble”. Manitoba’s Kerri Einarson team will also be there, as they won the Scotties last year and get to return as Team Canada.

Team Gunnlaugson had beaten Mike McEwen to advance to the 2020 Brier. In this year’s Brier lineup, Casey has moved from second stone to replace Alex Forrest at third, with Matt Wozniak joining the team at second, and Connor Njegovan again playing lead. Jacques Gauthier is alternate.

Casey is currently living in Charlottetown and keeping his game in shape by frequent practicing at Island curling clubs. As well as Manitoba, Casey, a native of Seven Mile Bay PEI, has also curled at the Brier for Prince Edward Island, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Saskatchewan.
