Curry stepped onto the finals stage facing off against Canada’s number 1 lady Cindy Pardy of Alberta. Each lady hungry for the win went to the final leg in a best of 7 match.  The deciding leg saw Pardy win the bull and kick into gear with a 95 start. Not to take a back seat Curry answered with a 100 and followed that with a 125. After 12 darts these ladies were sitting pretty with 180 for Pardy and 171 for Curry. A 60 shot for Pardy left a makeable 120 finish while Curry knocked off a 97 to leave 74. Another 60 for the Albertan, Pardy could only watch as Curry took her shot at 74 for the match.Triple 14 and 2 misses at the double 16 gave Pardy another shot at the title.

The stars were not in her favour though as she left herself on 40 with Curry starring down double 16 with 3 darts in her hand. All it took was 1 dart for Curry and the title was hers.

Marcel Simard of Sagueny Quebec, had similar plans of his own as he took on Canada’s number 1 ranked man, Terry Hayurst of Ontario in the men’s final, best of 9. Simard took control of the match from the start firing out of the gates with legs 1 & 2 in 16 darts. No shot at the double for Hayhurst in leg 3 as Simard finished off 40 leaving Hayhurst with 38.

Leg 4 was Hayhurst’s opportunity to get a win under his belt sitting at 100 with Simard looking at 40. Single 20 left Hayhurst 80 to rip and he took his shot at two double 20’s. A single 20 dashed his hopes as Simard finished off his double with ease.  The pressure was now on for the young lad with the veteran is looking to secure his place in the history books.

In leg 5 Simard had shots of 98, 100, 137 & 140 on his way to a finish with Hayhurst struggling to stay in the game. However, Simard was not leaving anything chance as he kicked out 20 to win the match 5-0 for his ticket to the World Master.
