Both of Westman’s teams representing Manitoba at the Canadian senior curling championships in Yellowknife, N.W.T., have qualified to play the final two days of the event.

Lois Fowler and her Brandon Curling Club women’s team of Maureen Bonar, Cathy Gauthier and Allyson Stewart secured their playoff spot with a 7-6 win over British Columbia’s Penny Shantz on Thursday morning and then topped Newfoundland’s Cathy Cunningham 8-3 to improve to 10-1. The Fowler foursome, which stole one in the 10th end to beat B.C., finished in a tie for first place with Saskatchewan’s Lorraine Arguin but earned the bye into Saturday’s final based on her win over Arguin during the round robin.

Meanwhile, Kelly Robertson and his Neepawa Curling Club men’s team of Doug Armour, Peter Prokopowich and Bob Scales will play in today’s semifinal. The Robertson foursome finished the round robin with a 9-2 record after a 10-4 win over British Columbia’s Wes Craig and a 10-5 victory over George Hilderman of the Yukon. Nova Scotia’s Alan O’Leary also went 9-2, but beat Robertson earlier in the week.

Robertson will face either Northern Ontario’s Robbie Gordon or Alberta’s Mark Johnson in the semifinal, which starts at 7:30 p.m. Gordon and Johnson will play in a tiebreaker today.

Both the men’s and women’s finals are slated for Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
