Undefeated Tigers await Reds & Mounties in AUS Curling Finals 

(St. John's, N.L.) The Dalhousie Tigers stayed perfect in women and men’s curling at the 2019 Subway AUS Curling Championships from the RE/MAX Centre. 

The Mount Allison Mounties defeated the Memorial Sea-Hawks twice in 11 ends to advance to the semifinal and earn a spot in the U Sports National Championship later this month. The Mounties tied the Sea-Hawks in the 10th end and stole a point in the 11th end to force the Sea-Hawks into an afternoon tiebreaker. The Mounties would once again defeat the Sea-Hawks in 11 ends, which earned them a semifinal matchup with the UNB Reds. Mount Allison would continue their strong play in the semifinal and defeated the Reds 9-3 and book their spot in the Sunday final. 

On the men’s side, Memorial, Saint Mary’s, and UNB all finished the round robin with 2 and 2 records. The Sea-Hawks won an earlier tiebreaker to get an automatic berth into the semi, while Saint Mary’s and UNB played in the tiebreaker. UNB scored 3 points in the final 2 ends to book their spot in the semifinal. The Reds would use that momentum to defeat the host Sea-Hawks by an 8-2 score.
