For the first time in three years, there won’t be any Westman teams representing Manitoba at the national Dominion Curling Club championships.

Brandon’s Stacey Fordyce, who was the defending Canadian women’s champion, lost the provincial final 9-4 to Tracy Andries from Winnipeg’s Fort Rouge club Sunday evening in Winnipeg. Fordyce’s squad never led the game and built itself an 8-3 deficit in five ends.

It was a tough finish for Fordyce, who topped her group with a 4-1 record before beating Carberry’s Pam Robins 6-4 in the semifinals. Robins finished in a three-way tie for first in her group at 4-1 but needed a 5-2 win over Swan Lake’s Christine Gundrum in a tiebreaker to reach the playoffs.

In the men’s event, the solid playoff run by Rod Waterhouse and his Carberry crew on Sunday came up short in the final as they fell 5-2 to Kerry Fedorchuk, who’s from the Petersfield club. Waterhouse finished tied for second in his group at 3-2 before beating Mark Lowdon 6-5 in a tiebreaker and defending provincial champion Steve Irwin from Brandon 6-5 in the semifinals. Irwin was undefeated in the event until he faced Waterhouse.

Boissevain’s Neil Bugg also reached the playoffs after topping his group with a 4-1 record, but lost his semifinal 6-2 to Fedorchuk.

Meanwhile, Neepawa’s Chase Dusessoy won the 13-and-under D-event title at CurlManitoba’s youth spring bonspiel in Winnipeg. Dusessoy defeated Winnipeg’s Justin Fontaine 7-6 in Saturday’s final.
