In the men’s tournament, Team Barry beat out 2018 World Junior Champs Team Tardi 7-4. Team Barry will continue on tonight against Team Blandford at 7 p.m. in Draw 12. The winner of that game will be one of the final four qualifiers.

Team Barry’s third, Sebastien Robillard said after the game that the team was playing after a 36 hour break. “It was good to get back on the ice and throw some of the rocks, and I think it was one of our better games.”

He added that the team’s patience and management of the score board helped them to pull off the win. He says the team is still kind of in the hole, but they’re getting ready to dig themselves out.

Team Cotter and Team Montgomery were the first two teams to qualify, and a game tonight at 7 p.m. between Team Wenzek and Team Joanisse will determine the final qualifier.
