Championship dreams dashed for Team Manitoba

  • Print

MONTREAL — Team Manitoba’s quest for the Canadian championship is over, as skip Chelsea Carey and her team fell 6-5 to Alberta’s Val Sweeting in an extra end in tonight’s Tournament of Hearts semifinal.

It was a tense game, marred by just-misses and a few big gaffes. Still, Carey had a chance to win in the 10th, down 5-4 and holding the hammer. But her chance for a winning deuce evaporated when her first rock wrecked on a guard and stayed out of the house. She was stuck with a single to tie the game and force the extra end.

In the bonus round, Sweeting third Joanne Courtney flashed her second rock straight through the house, but the gaffe was not enough to open the door for the Manitobans to steal. Sweeting’s final draw to the button sealed the win, and punched her ticket to the final.

Sweeting will now move on to face defending Canadian champion Rachel Homan on Sunday evening, while Carey will regroup and prepare for the bronze medal game on Sunday against Saskatchewan’s Stefanie Lawton.
