Tiebreaker to settle the final women’s playoff spot at Roar of the Rings

  • Print

It will take a tiebreaker to settle the final women’s playoff spot at the Roar of the Rings, as Winnipeg’s own Chelsea Carey fell 6-7 in a messy Thursday afternoon match against Ontario’s Sherry Middaugh, giving both a 4-3 record over the week.

Now, Carey and Middaugh will play again on Friday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. to fight for the third place spot. The second place spot was awarded to reigning Canadian champions Team Rachel Homan, who also finished the week 4-3 after beating Stefanie Lawton 6-5 in the afternoon draw.

While there were three teams tied at 4-3 and all had the same record against each other, Homan was awarded second place because she drew closest to the button in pre-game draws over the week.

The rest of the afternoon draw saw Val Sweeting, who had surprised the field when she got off to a hot 3-0 start at the Olympic trials, fall 9-8 to the basement-dwelling Renee Sonnenberg rink. The loss knocked Sweeting out of playoff contention, having lost her last four games of the tournament.

Finally, Winnipeg’s Jennifer Jones dispatched Heather Nedohin 6-5, although Jones had already locked up first place and a bye to the final with her performance on Wednesday.
