Log jam at BC Scotties

North Vancouver, BC (January 27, 2012) Seven out of 10 teams are still alive at the end of round-robin play at the 2012 Scotties BC Women’s Curling Championship presented by Best Western at the North Shore Winter Club.

In this morning’s final draw, Kelly Scott captured first place with a 7-5 win over Brenda Garvey, and Roselyn Craig and Marla Mallett finished in a tie for second, after Mallett downed Kelly Thompson 7-4 and Craig defeated Jen Rusnell 7-5. Kelley Law kept her hopes alive by defeating Allison MacInnes 8-3, as did Marilou Richter, edging Nicole Backe 7-6.

When the dust settled Scott was awarded first place with a 7-2 record and Mallett (6-3) captured possession of second place as a result of her round-robin win over Craig earlier in the week. Craig now sits in third and waits to play the winner of 2 breakers. Rusnell, Law, Richter and Backe are all tied with 5-4 records. Rusnell will play Backe, while Law faces Richter in the first round at 2:30pm, with winners advancing to the final tie-breaker tonight at 7pm.

Scott and Mallett will play in the Page Playoff #1 game tonight at 7pm with the winner advancing directly to the final.
