Although they have a big job ahead to make the playoffs, both of Manitoba’s Women’s teams have advanced to the championship round of the Canadian Masters at the Pembina Curling Club.
Judy Colwell’s Team Manitoba completed the preliminary round with a 3W-2L record while Sandra Cowling’s Manitoba Host team advanced with a 2W-3L record. (A provincial host team is included as a wildcard team in the draw when there are an odd number of provincial/territorial entries.)
British Columbia and Ontario lead the way with perfect 5W-0L records while Alberta and Nova Scotia are at 4W-1L.
The four teams from each pool will play the four from the other pool in the championship round. The preliminary round record carries forward and wins continue to accumulate to determine the four semi-finalist teams to meet Saturday at 2PM, with the finals set for 10AM Sunday.
Women’s championship round play is underway at the Pembina Curling Club with future games set for Thursday, Nov 17: 4pm; and Friday, Nov. 18: 10am & 6pm. Men’s championship round play is scheduled for Thursday, Nov 17: 12:15pm & 7:45pm; Friday, Nov. 18: 2pm; & Saturday, Nov 19: 10am.
On the Men’s Championship Round, Team Manitoba (Murray Warren) plays the Manitoba Host team (Mark Franklin) at 12:15pm Thursday. Warren advanced with a 5W-1L record while Franklin has a 3W-3L record.
