Congratulations to PPCC member Nathan Steele who won the CurlOn Under-18 Mens Provincial Championships yesterday in Hamilton. Nathan plays second for Team Josh Leung and they curl out of the Whitby Curling Club.
After starting the competition last Wednesday with two straight losses, the team rebounded nicely and finished the round-robin strong with five straight wins and a spot in Sunday’ssemi-final. The boys beat Team Owen Purdy from Listowel 4-2 on Sunday morning, earning them a birth in the finals against Team Hazen Enman from Bayview. In a very exciting final that was tied 3-3 after regulation, the game was decided in dramatic fashion in extra-ends when skip Josh Leung drew the button on the last rock of the game for his single to win 4-3. The boys will now represent Ontario at the Under-18 Nationals to be held in St. Andrews, New Brunswick on April 9-14th.
Congratulations and best of luck to Nathan and Team Leung at Nationals. Let’s Go Ontario!
