Harvey had finished the regular schedule in top spot with a 10-1 record, while Noseworthy was second at 8-3. However, in their playoff meeting, The Noseworthy rink never looked back after stealing three points in the first end.
Harvey, whose only two losses this season have come at the hands of Noseworthy, remains alive and will play in the semifinal game, but will have to wait before an opponent is determined.
Firstly, Andrew Symonds (Therapeutic Services Physiotherapy) will take on Heather Strong in a tiebreaker to decide the fourth and final playoff entry. The two teams tied for fourth place with 7-4 records, and while Symonds defeated Strong in round-robin play, a team cannot be eliminated from the playoffs by virtue of head-to-head round robin records
The tiebreaker winner will take on Adam Boland (Fun 'N' Fast) in the 3-4 Page playoff, with the victor in that one advancing to the semifinal against Harvey.
Like Noseworthy, the Boland rink had an 8-3 record in the round-robin, finishing up on the right side of a 5-3 decision in a make-up game against Trent Skanes (McInnes Cooper).
Noseworthy got second place and the berth in the 1-2 game by virtue of a win over Boland in the round-robin.
