If there was any doubt that Kristy McDonald’s rink deserved the top seed at the Manitoba Scotties, it was quickly erased on day one of the tournament.
McDonald’s team out of the Granite cruised in both of their games, beating Terry Ursel of Neepawa 11-3 and Christine MacKay of Fort Rouge 8-4.
McDonald is one of four teams at 2-0 in the Black Group: Joelle Brown and Michelle Montford, both out of Assiniboine Memorial, and Shannon Birchard out of St. Vital are all undefeated through two draws.
In the Red Group, Kerri Einarson was upset in her opening match by Brandon’s Cheryl Reed 11-10 in 11 ends, but the two-time runner-up bounced back with an 8-3 win over Lisa Menard of Dauphin in the day’s final draw. Cathy Overton-Clapham and Darcy Robertson sit atop the Red Group at 2-0.
