For the second year in a row, it will be a Thompson Rivers University/University of Alberta final to decide the CIS women’s curling championship.

The Corryn Brown foursome representing TRU and the defending national champion Kelsey Rocque rink from Alberta both won their semifinals Wednesday morning (Mar 23) at the Kelowna Curling Club.
Brown, third Erin Pincott, second Samantha Fisher and lead Ashley Nordin downed the Kristen Clark rink representing the Dalhousie University Tigers 7-4 in the semifinal.

TRU scored one in the first, two in the third, two in the sixth, and added singles in the seventh and ninth ends to win.
Fisher curled 84 per cent in the game. Brown was at 80 per cent while Nordin curled 76 per cent.

Alberta took down Guelph 8-6 scoring three in the 10 th.

TRU beat Alberta to close out the round robin last night. The two rinks met in the final of the Western Canadian curling championships a few weeks ago with Alberta taking the title.

The gold and bronze medal games will both go at 1 pm.
