Brown finished at Scotties Tournament of Hearts

The Corryn Brown rink’s bid for the national women’s curling championship has come to an end at the 2020 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Moose Jaw.

The Kamloops rink — representing the province as B.C. champions —defeated Team Canada on Friday by a score of 9-2, but a 6-5 victory by Northern Ontario over Prince Edward Island ended any chance of the local rink making it to the final four round.

The Scotties feature two pools of eight teams each. After round-robin play, the top four teams in each pool advance to the Championship Pool. There, the four teams in Pool A each play the four teams in Pool B, with the round-robin records carrying over to the Championship Pool.

The Brown rink defeated Nova Scotia in a tiebreaker to finish fourth and move on to the Championship Pool, but two losses placed the team on thin ice prior to Friday’s results.

Team Brown finished the Championship Pool on Friday evening with a 7-6 loss to Saskatchewan, with only pride on the line for both squads.

The final four playoffs will feature Ontario (9-2), the Wild Card squad (9-2), Manitoba (9-2) and Northern Ontario (8-3). The title game is scheduled to be played on Sunday, Feb. 23, at 4 p.m. and will be broadcast on TSN.

Team Brown is composed of skip Corryn Brown, third Erin Pincott, second Dezaray Hawes, lead Ashley Klymchuk, alternate Dailene Pewarchuk and coach Allison MacInnes.
