Her team may not be 100% health wise, but British Columbia’s Kelly Scott came away with a huge 7-5 victory over defending champion Amber Holland of Yorkton, Saskatchewan after day three of the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Red Deer.
In a battle of the titans as both teams were a perfect 3-0 heading into play, Scott stole one point in the tenth and final end to preserve the victory.
B.C. won without regular third Sasha Carter who had a stomach flu. So that meant rookie Dailene Siverston went to third and fifth Sherry Fraser got some playing time.
In an upset this afternoon, Prince Edward Island delivered a great comeback in a victory over Saskatchewan. Kim Dolan, P.E.I.’s 53 year-old skip was down 7-4 after seven, but got one back with the hammer in the eighth end and then stole two in the ninth end before getting the win in the tenth end.
As for Team Alberta after their first four games, they are 2-2. They have defeated co-favourite Jennifer Jones of Manitoba and Ontario, and were upset by Kelly Gelusha of the Yukon/Northwest Territories and also lost a tight 6-5 game last night to Team Canada.
