Jamie Newson rink wins third consecutive PEI Mixed Championship
It’s a “three-peat” for the Jamie Newson rink from the Silver Fox Curling Club in Summerside, capturing their third consecutive PEI Mixed Curling Championship, edging Crapaud’s Nick Blanchard team 7-6 this afternoon at the Maple Leaf Curling Club in O’Leary.

Blanchard won the first of three triple-knockout section qualifiers in the event, while Newson captured the next two, and the first of two possible championship games. Had Blanchard won the game, there would have been a sudden death game Monday evening, but a win in the first match gave Newson the title.

Blanchard led the game 4-3 at the fourth end break, but a pair of Newson deuces gave him a 7-4 lead. Blanchard was kept to singles in ends seven and eight, giving Newson the 7-6 win, and a return trip to the Canadian Mixed Championship, to be held Nov. 7-15 at the Canmore Golf and Curling Club in Alberta.
Nine teams representing five curling clubs took part in the PEI Mixed Championship.
Nine teams competing in O’Leary for 2020 PEI Mixed (fours) title
The Curl PEI Provincial Mixed (fours) Curling Championship will take place Feb. 21-24 2020 at the Maple Leaf Curling Club in O’Leary, with nine teams representing five curling clubs taking part.
The two-time defending champion Jamie Newson team from the Silver Fox Curling Club, and the Charlottetown Curling Club’s Tyler MacKenzie rink, who were finalists the last two years, are back this year, along with the Alex MacFadyen squad from Charlottetown, the Chase MacMillan and Lauren Ferguson junior teams from Cornwall, the Nick Blanchard foursome from Crapaud, and the George Koke, Philip MacDonald, and Larry Richards teams from Montague.
The nine rinks will play a modified triple knockout draw, with the winners of each section advancing to a two-game championship round. Winners from each section drop down to compete in the next section. If a team wins all three draw sections, they will be declared champions, and the championship round will not be played. A team winning two sections will advance to both championship games and take the championship if they win either game, will their opponent would have to win both sections.
The winning team will advance to the 2021 Canadian Mixed Championship, Nov. 7-15, 2020, at the Canmore Golf and Curling Club in Alberta.

2. If one team wins two qualifiers. They play in both A and B (and win the event if they win either game), the other section winner plays in A and has to win to advance to B.
3. If there are three separate winners: the team that played in the most qualifying games* advances to B and the other winners play off in A. If there is a tie in the number of qualifying games played, then the team that qualified earliest goes to B and the other two teams play off in A.
