The brother/sister team of Kirk Pederson and Trenna Derdall from the Outlook Curling Club won the 2014 Saskatchewan Mixed Doubles Provincials in Swift Current on Sunday February 16.
After the 6 team round robin, all teams were still in page-playoff contention with 3 teams tied at 3-2 for 1st place position and the remaining 3 teams at 2-3 vying for the fourth and final position in the playofffs. The Krista Ellingson/Terry Fink Team won 3 straight games to come through the tiebreakers, the first page games and the Semi-Final to end up in the final game. Pederson/Derdall earned the right to play in the 1 vs 2 game by their Skill Based Team Ranking and took advantage of that by defeating the Ryan Skjerdal/Ashley Skjerdal Team to advance to the final. The Pederson/Derdall and Ellingson/Fink final game saw the Perderson/Derdall team get out to an early 3 point lead after the first two ends of play and they never looked back.
Kirk and Trenna will now claim Saskatchewan’s Provincial spot in the Canadian Mixed Doubles Curling Trials in Ottawa, ON from March 19-13.
