Saskatchewan women into the playoffs at The Dominion Curling Club Championship
Saskatchewan’s Patricia Yeske and her team of Danielle Sicinski, Pamela Clothier and Leslie Glova captured the last semi-final spot in the Women’s competition with a victory over Sylvye Turgeon’s Quebec squad on Friday night.
It was a strong come-back for the Hillcrest Curling Club team from Moose Jaw after a crucial Draw 13 loss to Ontario earlier in the day. In the final round-robin game, Ontario stole 2 points in the last end to take a 7-5 victory – and a 6-0 record – into the playoffs. That left Saskatchewan and Quebec fighting for the last semi-final spot.
In one semi-final today, Saskatchewan faces Manitoba, who surged through the round-robin, finishing in second place. In the other, it’s the battle of Ontario, as Jodi McCutcheon’s High Park team faces Northern Ontario’s Melanie Patry from the Coniston Curling Club.
