The Western Community men’s team skipped by Freddie Fraser and the Leo Stewart foursome from the Silver Fox both finished with 4-1 win-loss records, and will play in the men’s semi-final at 10 am, while the Crapaud women’s team (5-1), captained by Stephanie Schnare and the Wendy Fraser-skipped Western Community foursome (3-3) will square off in the women’s semi at the same time, with the winners advancing to the final(s).
According to the rules, the undefeated Charlottetown men and Silver Fox women have to be beaten twice in the final, so if either loses that 2 pm game, a deciding game will be played at 6 pm.
The provincial winners will advance to the 2020 Everest Canadian Curling Club Championships, which will take place Nov. 22-28 at the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club.
