Brandon’s Lois Fowler was undefeated after her first two draws at the Canadian senior curling championships in Yellowknife, N.W.T.
Fowler, third Maureen Bonar, second Cathy Gauthier and lead Allyson Stewart improved to 2-0 at the event with a convincing 7-4 win over Northern Ontario’s Vicky Barrett on Sunday.
Fowler opened the event Saturday with an 8-7 extra-end win over New Brunswick’s Heidi Hanlon, scoring a deuce in the 10th and stealing one in the 11th to pull out the victory.
Manitoba’s late game against Saskatchewan’s Lorraine Arguin was still in progress last night. The Fowler foursome will take on Ontario’s Marilyn Bodogh and Nova Scotia’s Colleen Pinkney today.
Meanwhile, Kelly Robertson and his Neepawa-based men’s team of Doug Armour, Peter Prokopowich and Bob Scales were 1-1 heading into Sunday’s late draw.
Robertson dominated New Brunswick’s Mark Armstrong 12-5 in his opener on Saturday, but gave up five points in the first three ends of Sunday afternoon’s 7-4 loss to Northern Ontario’s Robbie Gordon.
Manitoba’s late game against Saskatchewan’s Darrell McKee was still in progress at press time. The Robertson foursome continues the round robin today against Nova Scotia’s Alan O’Leary and Prince Edward Island’s Ted MacFadyen.
