OTTAWA — Jennifer Jones and her Winnipeg-based foursome were defeated 7-5 by Calgary’s Chelsea Carey at the Roar of the Rings Wednesday afternoon.

It was the first loss of this Olympic qualifier for Jones, who drops to 5-1, while Carey remains undefeated at 5-0.

The loss also snapped a remarkable 19-game winning streak for Jones, a run which dated all the way back to the team’s last loss at a cash spiel in late October.

Both teams struggled on Wednesday with ice conditions and low shooting percentages in a contest that was a battle for first place between the last two remaining undefeated women's teams in this event.

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 6/12/2017 (345 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

OTTAWA — Jennifer Jones and her Winnipeg-based foursome were defeated 7-5 by Calgary’s Chelsea Carey at the Roar of the Rings Wednesday afternoon.

It was the first loss of this Olympic qualifier for Jones, who drops to 5-1, while Carey remains undefeated at 5-0.

The loss also snapped a remarkable 19-game winning streak for Jones, a run which dated all the way back to the team’s last loss at a cash spiel in late October.

Both teams struggled on Wednesday with ice conditions and low shooting percentages in a contest that was a battle for first place between the last two remaining undefeated women's teams in this event.

But it was Jones who struggled the most, particularly with draw weight, missing badly with attempts to end both the fifth and sixth ends and handing Carey steals of three and two respectively.

Jones finished the game shooting just 64 per cent.

Jones is now done for the day. She returns to the ice Thursday afternoon when she will face Thunder Bay’s Krista McCarville (2-2).

Jones chalked up the loss to nothing more than a rogue bad game and pledged to be better.

"We just got caught. It's going to happen and I rather it happen now than later on," Jones said after the game. "It's just a matter of whether we can rebound from it and I think we're made of something a little more than just crumbling after one loss.

"I expect us to come out and play well."

In other action on the afternoon draw, 2017 Manitoba women’s champion Michelle Englot finally notched her first win of this event, dumping Woodstock’s Julie Tippin 9-6 to improve to 1-4.

Both Manitoba-based men’s teams will be on the ice here Wednesday evening. Reid Carruthers (2-3) has a must-win game against Vernon’s John Morris (1-3), while Mike McEwen (4-1) takes on Newfoundland’s Brad Gushue (3-2).

Calgary's Kevin Koe leads the men's field at 6-0 following a 6-4 win Wednesday afternoon over Toronto's John Epping. With the win, Koe becomes the first team in either the men's or women's field to clinch a playoff spot.
