The Mohawk women’s curling rink scored its first victory at the OCAA Curling Championships in Sault Ste. Marie and did it in convincing fashion, 10-2 in six ends over the St. Clair Saints Friday (Feb. 9).
Alexandria Nunes’ foursome blew open a close game, scoring three points in the fifth end and stealing four in the sixth.
The Mountaineers are now 1-3.
Meanwhile, the men improved to 3-2 with a 7-6 victory over Niagara. It was 3-2 for Mohawk when the Jacob Delisle foursome scored two in the sixth end, for a 5-2 margin. The Knights got one back in the seventh but being up by two points coming home, Delisle knew they could hit and roll out, giving Niagara a steal of one, to end the game in the Mountaineers’ favour.
The next action is the sixth draw Saturday at 9:30 am, when the Mohawk men play Fanshawe.
The women return for round seven at 1:30 pm versus Humber.
