British Columbia handed Quebec their first loss at the mixed championships on Wednesday. Alberta started the game with the hammer and managed to score two points in the second after successfully blanking the first end. They would go on to steal a single point in the third before Eve Belisle managed to get on the scoreboard, picking up three in the forth. The game turned defensive at that point, as B.C. blanked the fifth, then was held to a single point in the sixth. Quebec managed to tie the game at four with a single of their own in the eight end. B.C. skip Brad Kuhn was able to blank the ninth and he followed up with a single to stop Quebec’s undefeated streak at seven. Quebec would go on to post a 9 – 6 victory over Alberta, ending the day with an overall record of 8 – 1, locking down first place overall in the round robin.
The final day of the round robin is going to be interesting to say the least. Manitoba and New Brunswick are tied for second place with a record of 6 – 3. Five teams share third, including defending champs Ontario, along with Alberta, B.C., Saskatchewan and Newfoundland at 5 – 4. Northern Ontario sits alone at 4 – 5, P.O. stands at 3 – 6 with Nova Scotia at 2 – 7 and the Northwest Territories / Yukon at 0 – 9. This is the first time that this NWT rink has played together as a team and its been said that they are enjoying the entire experience.
