The top three highest ranked Saskatchewan teams on the CTRS as of December 17, 2012 received a spot directly to the Provincials. Those teams were Team Lawton, Team Holland and Team Eberle. The highest ranked Saskatchewan team on the Sask Women’s Curling Tour as of December 17, 2012 to receive a direct berth in the Provincials was Team Englot.
The four Southern qualifiers were: Team Barker, Team Chisholm, Team Selzer and Team Miller-Jones. The four Northern qualifiers were: Team Paulsen, Team Martin, Team Shumay and Team Barber.
For the third time Balgonie once again hosted a first class Provincial Women’s Event. The hockey arena was transformed into a top notch arena curling venue with fast and swingy ice. The local volunteers went above and beyond to ensure fans and players had a great time at the event.
After the round robin pool play, the Jill Shumay team and the Stefanie Lawton team finished first undefeated in their respective pools advancing to the A1 vs B1 game. The Chantelle Eberle team was declared second in their pool but tiebreakers were required to determine second place in the other pool with 3 teams finishing at 3-2. Two tiebreaker draws were required that saw the Amber Holland team defeat the Trish Paulsen team in the first tiebreaker and then the defending provincial champion, Michelle Englot in the second tiebreaker to secure second place. The Lawton team defeated the Shumay team in the A1 vs B1 game advancing to the final and the Shumay team would play in the semi-final. The Holland team continued their winning ways to defeat the Eberle team in the A2 vs B2 game to advance to the semi-final. In the semi-final, the Shumay Team defeated the Holland team and proceeded to play strong in the final, beating the Lawton team to capture the Provincial Women’s Title. This was a first provincial women’s title for the entire Shumay Team.
The Marj Mitchell Award is awarded to the competitor at the Provincial SaskPower Scotties who is deemed by their peers to exemplify competitiveness, excellence in performance and sportsmanship on and off the ice. The award was presented to Jill Shumay from Maidstone.
