The Brayden Snow rink from the host Silver Fox Curling Club, and the Rachel MacLean team from the Cornwall Curling Club both went undefeated with 5-0 win-loss records this weekend to win the provincial Under 16 Curling Championships. Snow, backed up by third Cruz Pineau, second stone Brock Rochford, and lead Anderson MacDougall, with coach Shelley MacFadyen, was trailing 5-3 after four ends of play in the Sunday afternoon boy’s final, after the Chase MacMillan team from the Charlottetown Curling Complex stole three points in the fourth end. The teams traded deuces in the next two ends, with Snow tying the game with another pair in the seventh end, and pulling out an 8-7 win with a stolen single in the final end. The Chase MacMillan finalist team, who finished with a 2-2 win-loss record, also includes third Jack MacFadyen, second Liam Barbrick, and lead Davis Nicholson, and is coached by David MacFadyen. The third team in the boy’s event, the Samuel Shaw foursome from the Montague Curling rink finished without a win, but came within two points of the winning team in one of their matches.

Jack took a 5-3 lead with a deuce in five and single steals in 6 and seven, but Carver tied it up with a deuce in the eighth. Jack had hammer in the extra end, and recorded a single to punch her ticket to the championship game.

MacLean and Snow advance to U16 finals

There are two games left, at 10 am and 2 pm Sunday in both the Boys’ and Girls’ events, as the PEI Under 16 Curling Championships wrap up at the Silver Fox Curling Club in Summerside.

There is one round robin game left in the three-team Boy’s section, and the first place team, the Brayden Snow foursome from the host club, has already been determined, as they have finished the double round-robin with a perfect 4-0 win-loss record and can’t be caught by either of the other teams.

The Chase MacMillan team from the Charlottetown Curling Complex has a 1-2 win-loss record, while the Samuel Shaw foursome from Montague sits at 0-3, so if MacMillan wins their game at 10 am, he will advance to the 2 pm final against Snow. If Shaw wins, they will both have 1-3 records, so tiebreaking rules would come into effect. They would each have won one game and lost one against the other team, so head to head records cannot be used, and cumulative last stone draw results would come into play to determine who advances to the final.

Meanwhile, the single round robin has concluded in the Girl’s event, with Cornwall’s Rachel MacLean winning all four of her games by at least nine points, and advancing directly to the 2 pm Sunday final. She now awaits the winner of the 10 am semi-final where Clara Jack, who is also from Cornwall and has a 3-1 win-loss record, takes on the Sydney Carver foursome from Montague, who finished round-robin play at an even 2-2.
