2010 Scott Tournament of Hearts - Extra End
Team Canada Wins!
Carmody really pushed the hammer out on her last shot of the 10th end. PEI was shot, so that rock scored. Now CAN has the hammer and better-than-even odds to repeat as champs. Let's see how they play it.
Through ten ends, Jones out-curled Carmody, but overall PEI out-curled CAN by 5 percentage points.
- centre guard by PEI's Affleck
- draw around it to top full 8 by CAN's Askin
- draw around to back full 8 by Affleck
- tap CAN rock to top 4, leave CAN shooter in 8
Guards are gone with the second's stones. Ramsay puts up a sentre guard. CathyO peels it. Another guard from Ramsay. CathyO peels it. Carmody guards with her first stone (a slight tap might have caused problems for CAN). CAN takes a time out. Jones wants to draw to the edge of the top 4 and convinces the rest of the team of the efficaciousness of the strategy.
The Jones draw is about 3" too deep, setting up a possible draw/freeze for Carmody, which would likely lead to a steal and a win for PEI. She didn't freeze it (a tad heavy), though, leaving a similar tap for Jones to win. Jones picks it and wins.
Team Canada three-peats in a very impressive come-back!
