Jones beats P.E.I. despite scare in fourth end

  • Print

RED DEER, Alta. -- Manitoba's Jennifer Jones survived a scare here this morning at the 2012 Scotties Tournament of Hearts to defeat P.E.I.'s Kim Dolan 10-7 and improve to 2-0.

Trailing P.E.I. 5-2, Jones was light on a draw attempt with her final rock of the fourth end but still scored a game-tying three-ender after a poorly played end by P.E.I.

Dolan had put her team ahead with a three-ender of her own the previous end, making an open double-takeout of two Jones counters on the four-foot to give her team the short-lived lead.

Manitoba stole the fifth end to go ahead 6-5 when Dolan was unable to draw a piece of the button with her final stone. Manitoba never trailed again.

While Jones is undefeated through two games, her wins have come against lightweights -- P.E.I. Sunday morning and New Brunswick Saturday night. She will face her toughest challenge yet here this afternoon when she takes on local favourite Heather Nedohin of Alberta (0-1). That game will be televised live on TSN, beginning at 2:30 p.m. CT.

In other games Sunday morning, N.W.T./Yukon's Kerry Galusha continues to surprise, improving to 2-1 with a 10-5 win over Nova Scotia's Heather Smith-Dacey (0-2); Saskatchewan's Michelle Englot improved to 2-0 with a 10-7 win over Newfoundland's Heather Strong (0-3); and New Brunswick's Rebecca Atkinson improved to 1-1 with an 8-7 win over Quebec's Marie-France Larouche (1-2).
