Fowler fired up for final

Lois Fowler has never won a Canadian curling title before, but she’ll get her second crack at one today.

Fowler and her Brandon Curling Club foursome of Maureen Bonar, Cathy Gauthier and Allyson Stewart, will play in the national senior women’s final this afternoon in Yellowknife, N.W.T., and the skip is excited for the opportunity to finally get a championship.

Fowler has come close before. She lost the 1993 Scott Tournament of Hearts final in Brandon and finished third at her last two senior women’s nationals, so winning a Canadian title this year would mean a lot to her.

“It’s very exciting,” Fowler said. “It’s a dream come true if we can pull it off. It would cap off my career for sure. I know the other girls have years ahead of them, but I’m winding into the end of mine. It would be the icing on the cake, truly.”

Fowler’s team had a solid week. They went 10-1 during the round robin to finish atop the standings and earn a bye into today’s final, in which she will take on Saskatchewan’s Lorraine Arguin. Saskatchewan beat Ontario’s Marilyn Bodogh 7-4 in Friday’s semifinal.

The Manitoba squad beat Saskatchewan 8-6 in the round robin, but Fowler expects a tough test in the final.

“We controlled the game completely against them in the round robin, but tomorrow will be a new day,” she said. “Of course they have a lot more games under their belt and I think the final will be a real battle.”

Meanwhile, Kelly Robertson and his Neepawa-based curling team of Doug Armour, Peter Prokopowich and Bob Scales will take on Nova Scotia’s Alan O’Leary in today’s men’s final after defeating Northern Ontario’s Robbie Gordon 10-8 in Friday’s semifinal.

Robertson and O’Leary both went 9-2 in the round robin, but Nova Scotia beat Manitoba 9-7 in their head-to-head contest.
