Big Ends Lift Street Over Englot

In their fifth game of the round-robin, Team Englot stole three singles through the first four ends against Cindy Street and held a 3-0 lead at the halfway point. But Street scored 3 in the 5th and 4 more in the 7th for a 7-4 victory.

Street's win left her record at 4-1, which proved good enough to win the pool when Heather Rankin defeated Stefanie Lawton in their final round-robin game. Rankin and Lawton finished tied for second in the pool with 3-2 records; Englot wound up at 2-3.

Street will be joined in Monday's quarterfinal round by the other group winners: Shannon Kleibrink and Sherry Middaugh, who also finished at 4-1, and Cheryl Bernard and Bingyu Wang, who won their pools with perfect 5-0 records.

Rankin, Lawton and eight other teams with 3-2 records advanced to the tie-breaker round, from which three additional quarterfinalists -- Rankin, Krista McCarville and Stephanie McVicar -- have also advanced.
