A rink of ladies from the Lancaster Curling club won two games in Dundas County but fell just short, on points, of claiming the title at the Morrisburg Ladies Invitational.
Patti McLeod, Cheryl Lariviere, Heather Marsh, and Colleen MacCulloch totalled 16 points, finishing second in the final standings behind Navan, which had 19. The Lancaster ladies won the “team curling pong” 50/50.
The Atlantic team won the 2019 ‘A’ championship of the Alexandria Ladies Ball Hockey League last Thursday, prevailing in the third game of the best-of-three championship series over Team Molson.
The teams exchanged results in the earlier action, with Atlantic winning the opener 4-3 in o overtime, before Molson took the second contest 2-0.
The decider, on August 8 at the Glengarry Sports Palace, saw Atlantic turn the tables, triumphing 2-0. Chelsea Cayer had the game-winner, assisted by Catherine Glaude and Tammy MacSweyn. Brittany MacLennan iced it with an empty-netter, set up by Cayer.
The Blue Bellas took the ‘B’ playoff series, while McDonald Electric won the ‘C’ crown. For details and photos, please see this earlier post.
