On Saturday Jan. 7 our competitive Red Wolves curling team won B division south east qualifier for the Ontario Curling Association – Special Olympics Ontario Tankard championship.
Coached by Dave McKay and assisted by Dave Piercey the team of Emily Boccitto Trevor Brauer Brent Leffering Dawn Piercey and Skylar Pratt finished the competition with a pair of wins and a tie at the Lindsay Curling Club. They made us feel welcomed and served a delicious lunch.
The B divisional game (two ends) was our first win. Our first game was against Mississauga and the score ended 7- 3 in our favour. The second game was against Weston which we won 7 – 2. Our third game was against Milton which we tied and had to shoot closest to the button. Milton won the throw (all the games were four ends) but we won the B division by total points.
We are now heading to play Brantford in the OCA-SOO finals hosted by the West Northumberland Curling Club in Cobourg on Feb. 4.
A huge thank you to Dave McKay for being our head coach as well as support from our athletes’ parents. An excellent day for all involved.
