  • Print

PORTAGE LA PRAIRIE -- Jennifer Jones, Barb Spencer, Jill Thurston and Darcy Robertson were all winners here at the PCU Centre Wednesday morning as the opening draw of the Manitoba Scotties Tournament of Hearts unfolded according to form.

Top seed Jones defeated Brandon’s Kelsey Russill 7-4. fourth seed Spencer thumped Terry Ursel of Plumas 9-3 in eight ends and sixth seed Thurston beat Stonewall’s Kelsey Boettcher 7-5.

But it was Robertson’s 14-0 shellacking of Lori Forbes of The Pas that was perhaps the most notable result of the morning. The former three-time Manitoba women's champion posted a five-ender on Forbes in the first end and then authored consecutive steals of two, one, five and one to go up by two touchdowns at the fifth end break and prompt Forbes to shake hands.

The Scotties continues on the 12:15 p,m, draw as the other eight-team pool here gets their opening games. Second seed Cathy Overton-Clapham plays Miami’s Lisa DeRiviere, third seed Chelsea Carey plays Brandon’s Liza Park, fifth seed Janet Harvey plays East St. Paul’s Kim Link and seventh seed Michelle Montford plays Dauphin’s Lisa Menard.
