PEMBINA HAS TWO CHANCES TO WIN CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS

The final games are set in the Nature’s Bounty Club Championships at Charleswood.

On the men’s side Richard Muntain-St. Vital will play Zach Wasylik-Pembina.

Muntain advanced with a semi-final win over three-time former champ Andrew Wickman-Ft. Rouge. Tied playing the seventh end, and a house-full of rocks in play, it came to a measure which both teams hoped to lose to retain hammer coming home. The point went to Wickman and Muntain had last rock which he used for a nose hit double kill for two and a 6-5 victory.

Wasylik, a Manitoba Junior champion in 2020 with Brett Walter beat Manitoba Senior champion and former world senior silver medallist Randy Neufeld-La Salle with a four and a three en route to an 8-3 win.

On the women’s side, Sarah Roche-Ft. Rouge will play Lisa Birchard-Pembina.

Sarah Roche-Ft. Rouge scored two on the final end to win 6-5 when Team Scammell’s last stone draw wrecked on her attempt at a wide out-turn draw to the four foot. Birchard made a last stone draw to bite the button for a 4-3 win over Pelissier.

No Pembina team has ever won either Men’s or Women’s Club Championship. Fort Rouge has won seven previous (4 men, 3 women) and St. Vital has won two previous women’s championships.

The final goes at 2:00PM at Charleswood.
