      Jones rink finishes on top at Scotties

      The Manitoba rink led by Jennifer Jones secured first place at the end of the round robin at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts this morning with a 10-5 win over Alberta in eight ends.

      Jones and Alberta’s Val Sweeting entered the draw with identical 9-1 records, but Jones capitalized on opportunities this morning starting with three points with the hammer in the first and then a steal of three in the fifth end.

      Early on she was able to hold Sweeting to singles when Alberta had last rock advantage and that allowed Manitoba to build up a six point lead after five. They traded doubles in the next two ends and after Sweeting was held to a single in the eighth, she conceded.

      Jones will again face Sweeting in the page one-two playoff game later tonight.  A win there sends Jones straight through to the finals on Sunday.  A loss doesn’t eliminate hope for the Manitobans, the loser of that game gets a second chance to qualify for the championship game tomorrow in a semi-final matchup.

      The opponent in that semi-final will be the winner of the page three-four playoff game on Saturday morning.  That game is between Saskatchewan’s Val Sweeting and two-time defending champion Rachel Homan and her Team Canada rink.

      Homan faced elimination this morning, needing a win against Tracey Horgan and her team from Northern Ontario.

      Homan and Horgan were tied at four by after seven ends, but a blank in eight and a steal of two in nine left Homan in a position to advance. She ran Horgan out of rocks in the the tenth to post a 6-4 win and squeak into the playoffs as the fourth seed.

      Team Canada defeated Saskatchewan 6-3 on the first day of competition.
