'Road to the Roar' - Saturday Morning

November 14, 2009

Well, it would seem that there will be no repeat. In what can safely be called a shocker, Gushue won’t advance to the ‘Roar of the Rings’ in December, having lost Menard last night. Its really too bad, as I would have at least like to have seen him in Edmonton…he’s one of the Top 8 teams, so it’s a bit of a shame he won’t be there.

Anyways, yesterday saw Pat Simmons rebound from his ‘A’ Final loss on the ‘B’ side, defeating McEwen. On the women’s side, Kelly Scott made it 0-2 in the finals, losing to Ontario’s McCarville. She now drops down to the ‘C’ Side….I can only hope she makes it 0-3 today against Sherry Middaugh. Unlike Gushue, I’d be a very happy camper if Kelly Scott didn’t make it to Edmonton.

Aside from the Middaugh/Scott Final, today is the last chance for the other teams to get through. The other Women’s ‘C’ Final has Larouche v.Holland. The men’s sees the upstart Gunnlaughson v. McEwen, and Ursel v. the winner of Middaugh/Menard. Should be a good day of curling!

Tournament Bracket is here...
