UPDATE: Canadian Mixed Curling Championships Roll on

For 10 teams, the dream of winning a gold medal at the 2017 Canadian Mixed Curling Championships will come to an end today, but for four teams, the dream will remain alive.

 

Only the top four teams will advance to tomorrow, and those teams are Quebec, Ontario, New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador. Two of the four still have a chance at finishing first heading into the playoffs, and those two (Quebec, Ontario) will meet tonight for the coveted first spot.

"You can really toss a coin between the top four teams to who will win the Championship," said Murray Mullin, Chairperson for the event. "Quebec is undefeated at 8-0 heading into their final round-robin match, so they're obviously trying to continue their dominance, but it's going to be a real battle to see who will finish on top."

Two more draws will take place today, with the seeding bracket playing all of the 2:00 p.m. games, while the 7:00 p.m. draw tonight will feature both the top four and the remaining teams as they will finish their tournament.

"These are the best mixed curling teams in all of Canada," said Mullin. "If you like curling, this is definitely the place to be."

Manitoba will look to end their tournament with three straight wins when they take on Prince Edward Island this afternoon at 2:00.
