Englot Beats Galusha, Now 2-1

Michelle Englot and her team from Regina made quick work of Yellowknife's Kerry Galusha in Saturday morning's play at the 2009 Schmirler Curling Classic, pushing their record to 2-1 and remaining in contention in what's emerging as a very tough group.

Galusha started well, stealing a single point to open the game. But then the wheels fell off Galusha, as Englot scored three in the second end, stole three in the third and stole two more in the fourth.

Galusha had seen enough at that point; make the final: 8 to 1.

Englot is still in the hunt for a playoff spot but has a long, tough row to hoe: her next opponents are the World Champions from China, skipped by Bingyu Wang, to be followed by the always-tough Janet Harvey of Winnipeg.
