Steal of 3 in 7 Proves Costly, Englot Now 2-2

Stefanie Lawton stole 3 points in the 7th end to break a 3-3 tie and hand Team Englot a second straight loss Saturday night. Team Englot now stands at 2-2 and will be hard-pressed to qualify for the playoffs, apparently. But strange things have been happening in this spiel and I'm not making any more predictions.

I've been posting information from the official website of the World Curling Tour, where several hours ago Stefanie Lawton's record was listed as 3-0 and she was scheduled to play Michelle Englot on Sunday afternoon. Now it says Lawton beat Englot on Saturday night but it lists her record as 3-1, and it now says she lost her first game, against Cindy Street. I don't know what happened but I assure you I'm not making this up.

Pool D standings at the moment, according to the official site, show Lawton and Street at 3-1, Englot and Heather Rankin at 2-2, and Chelsea Carey and Aileen Sormunen at 1-3. Rankin plays Lawton on Sunday while Street plays Englot, and a four-way tie at 3-2 is possible. That would lead to multiple tie-breakers, which are always fun -- for somebody!

I'll try to keep you up to date.
