McDougall falls in semis at masters women's provincials

Joyce McDougall’s run for four straight provincial masters women’s curling championships came up short in Winnipeg on Sunday.

McDougall and her Brandon-based team of Linda Van Daele, Deborah Valcourt and Pam Horn struggled to get on track in the semifinal as they fell 7-1 to Winnipeg’s Rita Vandevyvere. McDougall’s squad gave up four stolen points in the final three ends before shaking hands after six. McDougall reached the semifinal by beating Winnipeg’s Gwen Smith 7-3 in the 3-vs.-4 Page playoff game.

Vandevyvere lost the final 7-3 to fellow Winnipegger Pat Malanchuk.

In the men’s event, Souris’s Doug Armour needs to win a pair of games today to claim his 10th career provincial title.

Armour and his squad of Ken Sabad, Bill Scott and Reg Warren gave up a point in the final end to Winnipeg’s Ron Westcott, who had the hammer, in the 1-vs.-2 Page playoff game to fall 5-4.

That drops Armour to today’s semifinal against Pat Carson at 9:30 a.m.

Westcott will face the winner at 1:30 p.m.

Armour went 5-2 in the round-robin and finished in a three-way tie for first in the Red Group, but earned the top spot based on his wins over Carl German and Don Holmes.

Virden’s Murray Duncan finished 3-4 and out of the playoffs in the Red Group. Dauphin’s Murray Russell and Brandon’s Lory Saban also missed the playoffs. Russell posted a 3-4 mark in the Black Group, while Saban went 1-6.
