Manitoba and Saskatchewan hold down top spot in B Pool with identical 3-1 records heading into Thursday’s stone throwing so Curtis will need to pull out a victory over Saskatchewan’s Danette Tracey later today to stay in the hunt.
The only other loss for the Curtis rink, which also includes Pat Spracklin, Kathy Miles and Sigrid Fitzpatrick, came earlier in the week in an 8-3 setback to Manitoba’s Tracy Andries.
Curtis opened the tournament with a 9-4 win over Northern Ontario. She defeated Quebec 6-3 and downed Prince Edward Island by a 7-2 count.
Curits represented the province at the Travelers two years ago and finished with a 2-4 record.
While Newfoundland and Labrador is holding its own, things aren’t going so great for former Corner Brook resident Danielle North, sister of former Corner Brook Royals star Steve North.
North is playing third for Nunavut’s Karielle Mackey rink and still looking for the first win after losing four-straight entering Thursday’s action.
