Gaudet, who finished round robin play with a perfect 5-0 record, earning her a bye to the final, has been to the national Scott before -- in 2003, where she lead the round robin with a 10-1 record, but went 0-2 in the playoffs, and in 2004, where she went 2 and 9 in the round robin.
The Bradley rink edged the Kathy O'Rourke team by a 7-6 score on Sunday afternoon to advance to the final. O'Rourke stole a single in the ninth end to take a 6-5 lead in the semi-final match between the second and third place finishers in the round robin. Bradley scored a deuce in the final end for the win. Other members of the Bradley rink are Janice McCallum, Krista Cameron, Leslie MacDougall, and fifth Lori Robinson. MacDougall plays lead but calls the game for Bradley, who throws skip rocks. The O'Rourke squad includes defending PEI Scott champion Rebecca Jean MacPhee at third, Kim Dolan at second, and Tammi Lowther throwing first stones, with Robyn MacPhee as fifth player. The Gaudet, Bradley and O'Rourke rinks all play out of the Charlottetown Curling Club. There were three other teams in the Scott: Bev Beaton from Charlottetown who finished at 2-3, Shirley Berry from the Cornwall and Charlottetown curling clubs who ended at 1-4, and Karen Currie from Cornwall, who went 0-5.
