Brandon’s Terry McNamee came up short in his bid to win a second straight provincial mixed curling championship on Monday in Carman.
McNamee’s team, with third Kerri Einarson and second Kyle Einarson of Gimli and lead Stacey Fordyce of Brandon, dropped a 9-4 decision to Corey Chambers of Pembina in yesterday morning’s semifinal. McNamee’s team went 5-2 in pool play and beat Winnipeg’s David Kraichy 11-9 in Sunday’s 2-versus-2 Page playoff game to advance to the semifinal.
Chambers went on to fall 10-4 to Sean Grassie of Deer Lodge in Monday afternoon’s championship game. Grassie, with third Tracey Lavery, second Scott McCamis and lead Callen Friesen, will now represent Manitoba at the Canadian Mixed Curling Championship in Ottawa from Nov. 25-30 as he looks for his second national mixed title in four years.
