This draw's skips comparison: Even though the Nova Scotia team outcurled the Canadian team 80%-76%, it still wasn't enough as Team Canada won 7-6.
I was at these games live. Rachel Homan of Ontario defeated Kristie Moore of Alberta by a final score of 9-5 in 9 ends. Team Homan got 3 points in end 3 and 5 to clinch the win. Jill Shumay (Saskatchewan) continued her hot streak with a 12-5 win in 8 ends over Allison Ross. The difference in this game was the 6. That's right, you heard me, 6 in the 6th end. Heather Nedohin won a close one 7-6 over Mary Anne Arsenault's rink. Nedohin got a 3 in the 4th to help her team win a close one. Jennifer Jones had a surprisingly had an easy game against Team Kelly Scott. Jones won 10-4 in 9 ends. Jones needed three 2's and a 3 to win. It wasn't as close as everyone expected it to be.

I was at these games live. Jennifer Jones had no problem beating Stacie Devereaux by a final score of 9-1. Jones stole 7 points to win in 7 ends. It was a close game between Heather Nedohin and Suzanne Birt. Birt had another close game, but couldn't get the 2 points she needed to tie in the 10th end. The final score was 6-5. Jill Shumay had a close game with Andrea Crawford right until the 4th end and the 8th end, where Shumay scored a 4 and a 3. Rachel Homan has not given up a steal yet in this tournament as she made some key steals of her own on a way to a 9-2 over Kerry Galusha.

Highlights: I didn't watch the game at the K-ROCK Centre but I did watch it at home! BC played a much better game this evening than the game in the morning against Manitoba. BC took 3 in the 1st and 2 in the 5th to beat Team Arsenault 9-4 in 9 ends dropping Team Arsenault to 0-3. New Brunswick rebounded after a tough loss against Saskatchewan to beat Team Galusha 9-5 in 9 ends. New Brunswick got 2 three's in 5 and 8. Team Ross of Quebec took advantage of Kristie Moore's mistakes to win 9-6. Ross got 3 in 6 after Moore got 3 in 5 to make it 7-4 Ross. Suzanne Birt after an 0-3 start, finally got their first win against another team that did not have a win. That team was Stacie Devereaux. Birt got two 3's and two 2's to seal the win.
