Jones Wins In Abbotsford

Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg has defeated Stefanie Lawton of Saskatoon to win the Wayden Transportation Ladies Classic in Abbotsford, B.C.

Jones led, 3-2, after four ends, and cashed a deuce in the fifth for a 5-2 lead. Lawton was forced to gamble in the sixth, and got nothing: instead, Jones stole four more points and the gloves came off. Make the final: 9-2 for Jennifer Jones.

Congratulations to Jennifer Jones, third Cathy Overton-Clapham, second Jill Officer, and lead Dawn Askin. They're a great team, current Canadian and World Champions, and will certainly be a force in the Manitoba playdowns.

Congratulations also to the nee-Miller sisters: skip Stefanie Lawton and third Marliese Kasner; and to their teammates, second Sherri Singler and lead Lana Vey. They're another excellent team, currently Canada Cup champions, and they will be a force in Saskatchewan.

But not the only one!

Team Englot will be back on the World Curling Tour at the John Shea Insurance Canada Cup Qualifier in Ottawa, beginning December 11th. And I'll be back then, if not before.
