Apparently the log jam at the top of the leader board was broken by point differential because in head to head competition in the round-robin Chris Rees beat Jim Armstrong, Armstrong beat Ken Gregory and Gregory beat Rees. The total point differential (points scored minus points allowed) had Rees with +33, Armstrong with +26 and Gregory with +16. In point differential between only the three leaders it was Rees with +6, Armstrong with +3 and Gregory with -9. Either way you calculate it Gregory had to take on Armstrong with the winner challenging Rees for the Provincial Championship.
In this semi-final game Armstrong opened with a single and stole a pair in the 2nd to go up 3-1. Each team then took singles to go into the break with Armstrong leading 4-1. The Gregory team came out refreshed in the first end after the break and posted a 4 spot to go ahead by one. Armstrong took one in 6 to tie and stole a pair in 7 to go up by 2. The seesaw battle continued with Gregory taking a clutch pair in 8 to tie the game 7-7 and send it into an extra end. Seven was a lucky number for Ken Gregory because in the extra end he stole the one point he needed to win thus making the final 8-7. He now has to defeat Rees again in tomorrow's final in order to become champion and represent Ontario in the Nationals. Can he do it?
