Tied in the 10th end, Chelsea Carey’s rink took the last point to win. Carey says it was a tough way for the game to end for her opponent Saskatchewan.
“Right now it doesn’t feel the best. That is not how you draw up a win and you feel for her. That is just a tough way for it to end for them.”
She says eventually she will feel good about the win because her rink played well.
“Right now it feels yucky… as yucky as first place can feel.”
Earlier in the week the team had four draws in a row and winning against Jolene Campbell sets them up for a morning off before they start their play off draws. Carey says their stretch of games in a row was very difficult and they are not complaining about the time off.
Meanwhile on sheet A, Team Canada and Team Ontario were going head to head. This was the first time Skip Jenn Hanna had played Jennifer Jones since 2005.
Jones took the win against Hanna 7-4 meaning Team Canada’s rink has a play off berth. Second for Canada Jill Officer says they hope they can keep the energy going and win against British Columbia tomorrow.
“Just taking it one game at a time and not getting too ahead of ourselves. Here we are with one game left. The week always seems to fly by and if we can win tomorrow, we are in a good spot.”
Team Canada sits in second place in the standings so far.
It was a battle of the east coast Thursday evening as well. Nova Scotia took the win against Newfoundland & Labrador 7-4.
Manitoba was on the ice taking on Prince Edward island which looked like it was in the prairie province’s favour half way through. PEI picked it up and gaining 4 more points for an end result of Team Manitoba and Kerri Einarson taking the win 8-7.
Manitoba will be on the ice tomorrow against Newsbrunswick at 8:30am and at the same draw time, PEI will take on Quebec.
