Harvey Beats Englot In A Close One

Michelle Englot finally had a close game on Sunday morning at the 2009 Schmirler Curling Classic, where her first four matches were short and one-sided. Englot got off to a good start against Janet Harvey, and held a 4-2 lead after 5 ends.

But Harvey scored four in the sixth to take a 6-4 lead with only two ends to play. And Englot cashed a deuce in the seventh to tie the score at 6-6, but Harvey had last rock coming home and emerged with a 7-6 victory.

With the win, Harvey finishes tied with Chantelle Eberle atop group E with 4-1 records, and both teams will advance to Monday's playoffs.

Englot winds up fourth in the group at 2-3, two games short of the playoffs but only one game behind the World Champions, and will return to the ice on October 9th in Calgary for the Trail Appliances Curling Classic.
