MacFadyen siblings win PEI Mixed Doubles Curling Championship

Each team had won one of the three qualifying games for the Championship Round of the Modified Triple Knockout draw, with the third qualifier on the line Sunday morning. The Sunday “C” Qualifier was a closely-fought match, with the MacFadyens stealing a single in the final end for a 9-7 win.

This gave the MacFadyens a “double life” in the two-game championship round against their Silver Fox clubmates, meaning they would win the title with a victory in either of the two games, while the Whites would have had to win both to repeat as champions.

Team MacFadyen then won the first Championship game by a 6-4 score, with the help of a 3th-end triple, and a 5-2 lead after four ends, making a second game unnecessary.
