Englot Qualifies Again!

Michelle Englot and her Regina team qualified for quarterfinals in their third straight World Curling Tour event, with a 7-4 win over Kristen Recksiedler of Maple Ridge, B.C. in the C event of the Wayden Transportation Ladies Classic, in Abbotsford.

Englot broke a 4-4 tie with three points in the seventh, and then ran Recksiedler out of rocks for the win.

The B event qualifiers have been played since my last post. Stefanie Lawton of Saskatoon took one of the quarterfinal spots with a 9-4 win against Winnipeg's Jennifer Jones. And Georginia Wheatcroft gave up a steal of 2 in the eighth, allowing Crystal Webster to tie the game, before Wheatcroft scored a single in the extra end for a 6-5 win and a playoff spot of her own.

The other C event qualifying games are also final.

Jennifer Jones scored a 6-3 win against Jody Maskiewich, of New Westminster; Kelly Scott scored 4 in the fifth and beat Amber Holland, 7-3; and Crystal Webster, after losing A and B qualifiers, finally grabbed a quarterfinal spot with a 9-2 victory over Julie Reddick of Brantford, Ontario.

Congratulations to all the qualifiers: Homan, Bernard, Lawton, Wheatcroft, Jones, Scott, Webster, and Englot.

One of those teams will win three games tomorrow and take home the big bucks.

Best of luck to Michelle Englot, Deanna Doig, Roberta Materi and Cindy Simmons.
