Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Vic­to­ria Vanier

Que­bec’s wheel­chair curl­ing team took sec­ond place at the Cana­dian Wheel­chair Curl­ing Cham­pi­onship, held in Boucherville last week. Last year’s cham­pi­ons from Que­bec were de­feated by the Assini­boine Curl­ing Club team from Man­i­toba with a score of 8-5. Af­ter five ends, Man­i­toba was ahead 7-2 but Que­bec came back in the sixth end, climb­ing back to within two points. In the eighth end, Les­sard’s first rock wrecked on a guard with two Man­i­toba rocks in the ring.

The Que­bec team, which in­cludes skip Benoit Les­sard, of Water­ville, Se­bastien Boisvert, of Stanstead, Carl Mar­quis, of Stanstead Town­ship, and Boucherville’s Jo­hanne Daly fin­ished 8-1 af­ter the round robin and played On­tario in the Page 1-2 play­off, beat­ing them and mov­ing on to the fi­nal.
