Weyburn will now have two rinks at the Saskatchewan Junior Provincial Curling Championships in Saskatoon later this month. Landon Field became the second rink from the city to qualify after a bonspiel in Prince Albert on the weekend.

Field opened the tournament Friday against the Zuravloff rink from Yorkton. After five ends, Field was up 3-2, but a rally of steals from Zuravloff would push them to a 7-3 victory.

The team from Weyburn would be back on the ice Saturday morning in the third draw, taking on the Gervais rink out of Kronau. Gervais took an early 2-0 lead thanks to the hammer in the first end, but then six points in three ends for the Field rink helped to power them to a 7-5 win.

The win in the morning would set up a matchup against Team Sutherland in the next draw. After a steal of two in the first end and a steal of one in the second, team Field found themselves behind early but rallied back to tie things up after four ends. They would take the lead after scoring two points in the sixth, and the teams would go back and forth, exchanging points until the tenth end. Field’s rink found themselves down by one and in need of a steal. It wouldn’t come, though, as Sutherland scored three, giving them a 10-6 victory.

In the fifth draw of the tournament, Team Field was against Team Drewitz out of Saskatoon. Field would jump out to a 4-1 lead after three ends, and despite some pressure in the fourth and fifth ends, kept up the pace, and would score a point in four of the final five ends. The consistency would pay off, as Field picked up the 8-5 victory.

Sunday morning, team Field was back at it for the 7th draw, up against Team Baumgartner, curling out of Regina. While Baumgartner would score points in five of the nine ends played, Field would pick up three in the third, two in the fifth, and three more in the ninth to power their way to an 8-5 final.

Field then moved on to take on the Gray rink out of Moose Jaw. After blanking the first end, Team Field then put up three in the second. While Gray managed to score two in the third with the hammer, the Field rink would put the game out of reach with eight points in four ends, and the teams shook hands after seven.

This set up a meeting between the Field rink and Team Bindig in the C side final. It would be all Team Field in the game. After blanking the first, Field put up two in the second. The third end was blanked again, and then Team Field would steal eight points over the course of three ends, and the two teams would shake hands after six.

With the win, the Field rink will be off to provincials in Saskatoon December 27th to 31st.

The Field rink is comprised of lead Gregg Wiens, second Keegan Woodard, skip Landon Field and fourth Hunter Labbie. They are coached by Kim Wiens and Clare Johnson.
