Championship pool standings still tightly knit after day six of 2021 Canadian Mixed Curling Championship

With still so much still to be resolved at the 2021 Canadian Mixed Curling Championship, only one day remains in Championship Pool play from the Canmore Golf & Curling Club in Alberta.

And though Jamie Koe’s Northwest Territories rink remains in first place overall having the day off on Friday, the Yellowknife Curling Club representatives maintain a game in hand over the other seven win competitor Québec. The Northwest Territories boast a 7-1 record with two games to come on Saturday, where the Championship Pool will conclude for all teams.
