ST. CATHERINES – Michelle Englot and Team Manitoba have done something 10 other provinces and territories couldn’t do all week: beat Rachel Homan.
Englot clinched first place in the round robin at the Scotties with a dominating 9-5 win over Homan’s previously unbeaten Ontario rink last night.
The game was basically over after the very first end, when Englot scored four points and never looked back.
“Getting off to a good start is always important in any game, and again, against a team like Rachel’s, it’s even more critical.”
The win means that Englot will have hammer to start the 1 vs 2 page playoff game when these two teams meet again at 6:30 tonight, with the winner getting a birth in Sunday’s final.
The loser drops into a semifinal tomorrow night.
