How They Got Here



Team Brown

Brown's squad won a hard back-and-fought battle against Pottinger's team.

Team Brown would get on the board first, but Team Pottinger fired back to take the lead in the second end. After a three-ender in the eighth frame, it appeared Team Brown had an opportunity to cruise to victory, but that wasn't the case.

Pottinger's squad would come back with three more points in the next two ends, forcing an extra end. Brown's squad would emerge victorious after scoring the match-winning point to earn its spot in the final.

The final score was 8-7.


Team George

George's squad had a bit easier time in their respective matchup.

Team George gained an early advantage over Team Carlson, 3-0, but Carlson would come right back with two points to make this a match.

After that, George scored a four-ender in the fifth frame to pull ahead for good. Carlson would bring it back to a respectable score, but two points in the eighth frame sealed the deal for Team George.

The final score was 9-6.



Team George

George's squad jumped out to a 4-0 lead against Team Shuster, but Shuster would cut the deficit in half with a two spot in the fifth end.

Brown would fire back in the sixth with another point, thus bringing the score to 5-2.

Shuster's squad was only able to muster up another two points throughout the rest of the match, and clearly that wasn't enough to emerge victorious as Brown sealed the deal with another point in the 10th end.

The final score was 6-4.


Team Clarke

Team Shuster had another crack at making it to the final, but once again fell flat, this time against Team Clarke.

Shuster's squad got off to a much better start in this showdown and staked itself to a 4-2 advantage after five ends.

However, Clark's squad would answer with one point in the sixth, two in the eighth and one in the 10th, while Shuster's team couldn't close the deal and was only able to muster up one point in the final five ends.

That resulted in a nail-biting win for Team Clark.

The final score was 6-5.
