Michelle Englot and her teammates Candace Chisholm, Roberta Materi and Christie Johnson won a second consecutive SWCT event on the Thanksgiving weekend at the Callie Club in Regina. In a back and forth championship game against Chantelle Eberle of Regina, Englot put the game away in the sixth end with a remarkable long angle raise double off a corner guard to remove two well guarded Eberle stones in the four foot to set up a steal of four points. Eberle rebounded with a superb split to sit three on her first shot in seven but was unable to capitalize on her last shot to force the eighth end. The teams shook hands and the game finished up at 9-4.
Eberle advanced to the Final by defeating Sherry Just while Englot needed an extra end to defeat Regina’s Larissa Murray’s team. Jessica Hanson, Trish Paulsen, Kelly Wood and Mandy Selzer teams rounded out the teams that qualified. Results may be found on the CURLSASK Results page.
With the win, Englot puts a stranglehold on the Tour Championship title and a direct entry into the 2014 Viterra Scotties Provincial championship in Tisdale. SWCT Tour Standings may be found on the SWCT site.
The third of five tour events will be held in Moose Jaw this weekend starting Friday afternoon, October 18th, 2013.
