The 2014 Scotties Tournament of Hearts will be hosted by Montreal for the first time in the 32-year history of the event, Feb. 1-9 at the Maurice Richard Arena. The Canadian women’s curling championship was contested in the city once before, in 1979, prior to taking on the Scotties title.
Draw 11 from the 2013 Scotties Tournament of Hearts – The Canadian Women’s Curling Championship.
For Kelly Scott and her B.C. squad, it was an opportunity to overcome a disappointing loss Tuesday night to Team Canada – partly due to a picked rock in the tenth end – and climb closer to the leaders in the standings. For PEI’s Suzanne Birt, it was an opportunity to extend the winning streak that started in Draw 5 after three losses to start the round robin.
At the start of Draw 7, four undefeated teams sat at the top of the standings. When the rocks came to rest, there were only three, thanks to Suzanne Birt’s surging P.E.I. team, who earned a decisive 12-7 victory over Saskatchewan’s Jill Shumay in Monday night action at the K-Rock Centre in Kingston.
