In the Open Division final, the duo of Vince Fisher and Paul Arsenault stole the last end in a 5-3 decision over the John Marshall/Lowell Jenkins twosome from Nova Scotia, finishing with an overall win-loss record of 6-2, after finishing round-robin play at 3-2. The PEI rink got by the Steve Murray/Harold Smallwood team from New Brunswick 5-3 in the quarter-final round, and edged the Chuck Dyke/Jim Burgess team from Nova Scotia 4-3 in the semis, while Marshall/Jenkins outlasted Montague’s Gordon MacDonald/Bazil Higginbotham twosome 3-2 in their low-scoring semi.
