Redemption for Dacey
(Jan 13) HALIFAX - tsn.ca - One year after missing a shot that would have given him the Canadian Mixed Curling Championship, Nova Scotia's Mark Dacey made amends on Sunday.
Dacey's team captured the 2002 championship on their home rink at the Mayflower Curling Club in Halifax, beating John Likely of Prince Edward Island 6-4 in the final.
Dacey only lost one game all week, and won a dozen times. His only loss was to Wayne Tuck Jr. of Ontario in the 14th draw, but he made up for that by beating the same team in the First Page Playoff Game to advance to the final.
Dacey's win ended a fine run by Likely, who was making his record eighth appearance in the event. He had already beaten Gerald Shymko of Saskatchewan in the Second Page Playoff Game Saturday before pulling out a 6-5 win over Tuck in the semifinal.

Northern Ontario's Dave MacInnes finished at 4-7 at the 2002 Canadian Mixed Curling Championships in Halifax. The four 6-5 loses were killers.
Dave and the team represented us well. They will no doubt be back again.
