PSHS Girl's Curling Team went to OFSAA!

The PSHS girls competed in the MPS championship

and came away with the championship trophy

qualifying for the GBSSA championship on March 7th.

 

The girls won the GBSSA tournament and

went to Fort Frances

to compete in the OFSSA Championship

from March 20-24, 2018.

 

 

Of special note: 

The PSHS boys team lost by only 1 point

in the Championship game against Eastview. 

A great showing by both of our PSHS teams!

 

Results from OFSAA 2018:

 

PSHS was tied with Lockerby for first place in their pool.  The girls played Lockerby their last game at 2 PM on Friday.  They won 5-4 against the Lockerby team.

That lead them to a first place finish in their pool with a 4-1 record.

 

That win took them to the Quarter-finals where they played Timiskaming.

 

Although they were down 7-2 in the fifth end, they kept fighting back, taking 3 in the sixth, stealing 1 in the seventh and stealing 1 more in the 8th to tie the game.  Without hammer in the extra end, it was going to take another steal to win the game, but they were unable to accomplish that.

 

What a great run the girls had though!

 

Congratulations to the team and their coach Julie Truscott for an excellent season and a great tournament!

 

Of note - the eventual winner Lockerby actually came from the same pool as PSHS and was the team that they beat in the round-robin.

News:

One of our Parry Sound curlers - Terri Weeks is doing very well in University curling.  See the news report below about the Brock Badgers and Terri!

The Brock University men's and women's curling teams competed at the 2016 OUA Curling Championships hosted by the Guelph Curling Club.
 
The Brock women's lineup, consisting of
Joanna Francolini, Terri Weeks, Samantha Morris, Lauren Calvert, Jeanette Burnside and Shelby Bailey, posted an overall record of 7-2 to take home the OUA silver medal. The women placed first in Pool play with a 6-1 record with wins over Ryerson (6-2), Lakehead (8-5), Algoma (13-3), Waterloo (7-6), Laurentian (8-2), Queen's (5-4).

Their lone pool play loss came against the Guelph Gryphons, 5-2. In the semi-finals, the Badgers rebounded and knocked off the Gryphons 7-1, to make it a Brock vs Laurier Gold Medal Final for the second straight year. In the final, Brock led 4-3 after six ends, but it was the top ranked Golden Hawks closing out the match with three points for the 6-4 victory.

The Club championship 2015:

Congratulations to our new club champions!

 Kari Barks, Cec Barks,

skip Laurie Robinson and Erin Walker

  Teams that played in the Club Championship:

    

 

It was a very good year for the women's teams in the Club Championship. Laurie Robinson's team defeated Julie Truscott's team in the Main Event final to become the 2015 Club Champions.  Congratulations to both women's teams!

In the consolation final it was April McNamara (Gill's Wed. night team) who defeated Ron Marshall in a very close game.  April's last run-back take-out was the game winner.  What a fantastic shot!

Both the second and third events were tied after 8 ends - and in a shoot-out for each, both skips put rocks on the button or very close to it.  How exciting to watch!

Winner of the second event was Cody MacDonald's Thursday night team defeating Bob Gilman (Scott Somerset's Thursday night team).

The third event was won by Jason Cutler (Al Bourgois' Tuesday night team) over Bruce Shadd's Monday night team.

 

Congratulations to all of the competitors and the winners and runners-up in each event.  Well done all!
