Westman teams secure Safeway berths

Virden’s Graham Freeman, Brandon’s Steve Irwin and Neepawa’s Kelly Robertson secured their spots at the Safeway Championship through the Westman regional playdowns in Hamiota on the weekend.

Irwin topped fellow Brandonite Shawn Taylor 9-4 in an A-event qualifier on Saturday to book his ticket to the provincial men’s curling championship, which will be held in Winnipeg from Jan. 29 to Feb. 2, while Freeman topped Robertson 5-3 in the other A-event qualifier. Robertson came back through the B-event and beat Wawanesa’s Perry Fisher 6-3 in that qualifier on Sunday to secure the region’s third and final spot.

In the Central playdowns in Manitou, Gladstone’s Geoff Trimble defeated David Hamblin 7-1 in an A-event qualifier to qualify for the Safeway Championship.

In the Parkland playdowns in Gilbert Plains, Dauphin’s Greg Todoruk bounced back from losing the A-event qualifier 7-1 to Brent Scales to win the B-event qualifier 8-1 over Butch Mouck to book his ticket to Winnipeg.

In the Scotties tournament of Hearts regionals, Brandonites Kortney Teale and Stacey Fordyce earned the right to represent Westman at the provincial women’s championship, which will be held in Virden from Jan. 8-12. Teale topped Fordyce 7-3 on Sunday morning in Hamiota to win her berth through the A-event, while Fordyce battled back through the B-event and beat Maureen Bonar 8-0 in that qualifier.

In the Parkland playdowns in Dauphin, Lisa Menard capped her undefeated run with an 8-6 victory over Tiffany McLean in a battle of teams from Dauphin to secure the only spot from the region.
