Brandon’s Lois Fowler continued her solid start Monday at the Canadian senior curling championships in Yellowknife, N.W.T.

Fowler’s Brandon Club team of third Maureen Bonar, second Cathy Gauthier and lead Allyson Stewart, improved to 4-1 by hammering Ontario’s Marilyn Bodogh (3-1) in the morning draw before falling 9-7 to Nova Scotia’s Colleen Pinkey (2-2) in the afternoon. Fowler, who was idle last night, held at least a share of first place going into the final draw of the day, which was still in progress at press time.

Fowler’s foursome fashioned a 6-1 lead through five ends and finished off Ontario by scoring four in the seventh. In their second game, the Manitoba representatives trailed 6-5 before giving up a deuce in the sixth end to Nova Scotia, which surrendered back-to-back singles in the seventh and eighth before putting the game away with one in the ninth.

Fowler faces Prince Edward Island’s Jennifer Scott (3-1) this morning and Alberta’s Glenys Bakker (3-2) this evening.

Meanwhile, Kelly Robertson’s provincial senior men’s championship team based out of Neepawa split its Monday games to sit at 3-2 for a share of fourth place heading into last night’s late draw. Robertson’s rink, with third Doug Armour, second Peter Prokopowich and lead Bob Scales, began the day by hammering P.E.I.’s Ted McFadyen 13-4, scoring four in the first, four in the fifth and five in the seventh end as P.E.I. slipped to 0-4. But Robertson went on to drop a 9-7 decision to Nova Scotia’s Alan O’Leary (4-0) in the afternoon, giving up a decisive three in the 10th end.

Robertson is slated to battle Ontario’s Peter Mellor (3-1) this morning and Alberta’s Mark Johnson (4-1) this evening.
