Robertson on a roll

Neepawa’s Kelly Robertson and Brandon’s Kelly McMechan are right where they want to be after the first two days of the Strathcona provincial senior men’s curling championship at the Brandon Curling Club.

Robertson and his team of Doug Armour, Peter Prokopowich and Bob Scales improved to 4-0 with a 6-4 win over Sam Antila and a 9-4 victory over Lionel Walz on Friday. Robertson’s squad shares the Red Pool lead with McMechan’s foursome of Myles Olmstead, Brad Edwards and Don Williams, who won the battle of Brandon 4-2 over Lory Saban in the afternoon before topping Rob Atkins 5-4 to remain undefeated in the event.

Saban’s team won its first game on Friday evening, a 7-5 decision over Ron Westcott to improve to 1-3.

In the Black Pool, Pilot Mound’s Curtis McCannell won both of his games Friday and is in a three-way tie for second place at 3-1, while Dauphin’s Jim Todoruk is 0-4. McCannell topped Todoruk 10-1 before beating Keith McLeod 9-4.

The round robin continue today and Sunday, with the Page playoff games set for tomorrow at 7:30 p.m.

In the Tim Hortons senior women’s event, also at the Brandon Club, Lois Fowler’s Brandon team of Maureen Bonar, Cathy Gauthier and Alysson Stewart, as well as Deb Collyer’s Killarney foursome of Marilyn King, Donna Dowsett and Karen Dunbar, have secured their spots in the playoffs. Both are a perfect 4-0 in the Black Pool after Fowler knocked off Lori Pelissier 5-4 in the morning draw before beating Cathy Cook 7-4 in the afternoon. Collyer topped Cooke 8-5 in the morning and followed that up by edging Arlene Deprez 6-5 later in the day.

Fowler and Collyer will close out the round robin against each other today at 9 a.m. The winner advances to tonight’s 1-vs.-1 Page playoff game, while the loser will play in the 2-vs.-2 contest.

In the Red Pool, Hamiota’s Sandra Cowling also won both of her games on Friday to improve to 4-0 and clinch a playoff spot. Cowling will wrap up the round robin today against Brandon’s Joyce McDougall (2-2). McDougall needs to win to have a chance to catch Laurie Deprez (3-1) for the final playoff spot. Souris’s Lynne Locke is 0-4.

The women’s final is slated for Sunday at 1:30 p.m.
