Strong start for Beaudry


The Kim Beaudry rink is doing its best to showcase the talent Northern Ontario has to offer at the Everest Canadian Senior Curling Championships being held in Chilliwack, B.C.
The squad, which also features Barb Roy (third), Wendy Brunetta (second), and Kris Sinclair (lead), had compiled a 3-2 record heading into play today.
Beaudry opened Pool ‘A’ play Friday afternoon with a 4-2 win over host B.C. before losing 6-3 to Alberta the following morning.
The squad then was routed 7-2 by Saskatchewan on Saturday afternoon but rebounded with an 8-1 thumping of their own yesterday morning against Nunavut.
Then in their evening match against the Northwest Territories, the rink rallied for a 6-5 win.
Trailing 5-4 heading into the eighth end, Beaudry stole two to pull out the victory.
Beaudry, currently sitting in fourth place, was slated to face Quebec (1-3) this morning in their final round-robin game, with the outcome not known as of press time.
The top four in each pool then advance to the Championship Pool for games against teams from the other pool while the remaining teams go to the Seeding Pool.
At the conclusion of the Championship Pool this Wednesday, the semi-finals will be held Thursday morning, pairing 1 vs. 4 and 2 vs. 3.
The winners then advance to their respective gold-medal final later in the day while the losers will play for bronze.
