Stirling curler sits at 2-2 at U18 nationals
Stirling’s Kayla Gray’s hopes of a national title will come down to Thursday mroning at the U18 curling championship.
Gray, along with vice Mikayla Gemmill from Perth, second Chelsea Ferrier from Perth, and lead Morgan Typhair of Brighton, split their games Wednesday at the championships in Moncton, beating Norther Ontario 7-6 in an extra end in the morning before falling 6-4 to previously winless Newfoundland in the afteroon.
Team Ontario sits with a 2-2 record with one game left in the first round of the Canadian championships in Moncton.
Team Gray lost to Manitoba 6-3 after opening the event with a 5-1 win over Saskatchewan on Tuesday.
Against Northern Ontario, Gary started slowly falling behind 4-2 midway through the contest. But a steal of three in the sixth end after one in the fifth gaveOntario the lead coming home.
Northern Ontario stole one in the eighth to tie the game but Gray and her crew were able to score their single for the victory in the ninth.
Against Newfoundland, Ontario never really got on track. Gray had a 3-2 lead after four ends but gave up a deuce in five and a steal in six before being forced to one in seven.
Ontario plays Alberta Thursday morning.
