Carey out of Olympics, turns attention to provincials

  • Print

Chelsea Carey’s Olympic dream finally came to a halt with the last rock of Friday afternoon, as she fell 6-3 to Ontario skip Sherry Middaugh in a tiebreaker draw at the Roar of the Rings.

With that, Middaugh claimed the second spot in tonight’s semifinal against reigning Scotties champion Rachel Homan. The winner of the semifinal will battle Winnipeg’s Jennifer Jones in the Saturday final, fighting for the right to represent Canada at the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

In a classic curling moment, early in the 10th end Middaugh stopped on of her own rolling rock with her foot, apparently mistakenly believing it was headed out of play. In fact, the rock was sliding towards the house. That meant Carey had the right to place it where she saw fit – but when she did, the crowd at MTS Centre cried out in disapproval.

Responding to the audience vote, Carey moved it back out of the house, and fans applauded roundly when they liked the placement.

Now, Carey and her rink will turn their attention to the provincial championships in January, ready to work towards a trip to the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in February.
