Spencer Steals One Clean Away

Barb Spencer of Winnipeg scored on four consecutive ends Sunday morning -- a total of five points, four of them stolen -- and held on for a 5-4 victory against Michelle Englot and her team from Regina. The loss dropped Team Englot's record to 3-3 and knocked them out of the event. Unfortunately, you can't win 'em all.

Spencer remains alive in the 'C' event, and can reach the round of ... um ... thirteen ... with a win against Heather Strong on Sunday afternoon.

The 'B' event is now finished, and six once-beaten teams have claimed their spots in the next round. They are: Jolene McIvor, Marie-France Larouche, Sherry Anderson, Kristy Jenion, Cathy King and Chantelle Eberle.

Four qualifiers will emerge from the 'C' event, and they will join these six teams in the first round of playoff games Sunday night.

The winners of these five games will join the three 'A' event qualifiers -- Mary Anne Arsenault, Jennifer Jones and Shannon Kleibrink -- in Monday morning's quarterfinals.
