Matthew Armstrong delivered his final stone of the sixth end during an eventual 7-5 loss to Zacharia Warkentin (Thunder Bay) on Friday night at the Northern Ontario Bantam boys’ provincial playdowns hosted by the Fort Frances Curling Club. Armstrong’s rink, from the Stratton Curling Club, finished with a 1-6 record while Warkentin took first spot at 7-0 to qualify for the Ontario Winter Games next month along with Tanner Horgan (Sudbury) and Scott Morphet (Sault Ste. Marie). Meanwhile, Stratton’s Jessica Haw finished at the bottom of an eight-team field after similarly going 1-6 at the Bantam girls’ provincial playdowns in Longlac.
