Yukon Wins the Battle of the Territories
Steve Fecteau of Whitehorse in the Yukon, dumped Ed Sattelberger of Nunavut 10-4 to earn the final berth in the full round robin of the 2013 Canadian Mixed Curling Championship in Montréal.
Fecteau made good use of the hammer in the opening end with a score of two followed up by another deuce in the 3rd end to jump ahead 4-1. After a Nunavut single point in the 4th end, Fecteau scored three in the 5th end heading to the break up 7-2.
The Iqaluit foursome countered with a much needed two points in the 6th end to keep their hopes alive, however the Yukon skip countered with two in the 7th end. A meaningless steal of one point in the 8th frame ended the match.
The full event featuring 12 teams begins Saturday, November 17th at 6:30 pm at the Town of Mount Royal Curling Club.
Play will continue all week with the championship final scheduled for Saturday, November 24th at 2:00 pm.
