Top teams in women’s pool play add to their respective leads

In the afternoon session (Draw 10), four different teams at the top of their respective pools managed victories, creating a bit of separation between the leaders and the field.

In Pool A – Alberta #1, skipped by Serena Gray-Withers, managed a last-rock 5-4 win over Northwest Territories (Cassie Rogers; Edmonton) to improve to 4-1, while Northern Ontario (Katy Lukowich; Sudbury) and Manitoba #1 (Tansy Tober; Winnipeg) were also victorious, keeping them in the hunt with 3-1 records. Newfoundland and Labrador (Mackenzie Mitchell; St. John’s), who also sit at 3-1, had a bye.

In pool B, Nova Scotia 1 – skipped by Taylour Stevens (Halifax) – won their fifth straight game, remaining undefeated. Tuesday morning’s matchup with Ontario’s Emily Deschene (Ottawa) – also undefeated at 4-0 – will decide which team will suffer its first loss of the tournament.

In other draw 10 action, New Brunswick’s Celia Evans (3-2; Oromocto) defeated Prince Edward Island’s Rachel MacLean by a 7-3 score while Alberta #2’s Claire Booth (3-2; Calgary) managed an 11-2 win over the Yukon’s Bayly Scoffin (1-4; Whitehorse). Saskatchewan’s Madison Kleiter (3-1; Saskatoon) downed Québec #1’s Lauren Cheal (0-4; Lennoxville/Rivière-du-Loup) and British Columbia’s Holly Hafeli (2-3; Kamloops) bested Ontario #2’s Rachel Steele (1-3; Toronto) by an 8-7 score.
