Kerri Einarson hopes it’s third times a charm at the Manitoba Scotties.
The skip out of East St. Paul has lost the last two years in the finals to Jennifer Jones. This year Jones has the automatic berth to the National Scotties as Team Canada, so Einarson’s opponent will be Kristy McDonald.
McDonald advanced straight to the final thanks to a 7-5 win over Einarson in the 1 vs. 1 page playoff game. That relegated Einarson to the semifinal where she made quick work of Shannon Birchard 8-2 to earn a ticket back to the title game.
The winner gets to play in the national Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Grande Prairie, Alberta. The championship match starts at 1:30 p.m.
