Draw 17: So Much Is On The Line!
Well, whatdya know: the featured game on TSN does not include Saskatchewan!
But all four of the games are crucial for at least one of the teams.
- Nfld needs to defeat NS to stay at only 5 losses and have a ghost of a chance of being in a tie-breaker.
- Ontario needs to defeat Alberta to stay at 5 losses and to drag Alberta down to 5 losses.
- Saskatchewan needs to beat Manitoba to avoid slipping to 5 losses and the monumental mess of tie-breakers.
- Canada must beat BC to avoid slipping to 5 losses.
We just realized that if Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Canada all win, there will five teams tied for second with records of 7-4. Fun stuff!!
In the 4th end, Mallett (BC skip) made a perfect hit and roll, forcing Jones to draw to the 8' to take one, but her shot was way too heavy and so BC stole one.
2-2 after the 4th end.
In the 5th end, the Jones rink had a chance to sit for three, but Overton-Clapham's 2nd shot rolled out, so in the end Team Canada scored two.
Canada 4, BC 2
Time for the fifth end break. Second half in a new posting.
