Kelly Robertson and Lois Fowler are in the thick of the hunt entering Day 5 of the Canadian Senior Curling Championships in Yellowknife.

Robertson’s Neepawa-based team of third Doug Armour, second Peter Prokopowich and lead Bob Scales improved to 4-2 by hammering Ontario’s Peter Mellor 9-2 in Tuesday morning’s draw. The Robertson team scored in four straight ends to take a 5-0 lead and put Ontario (3-2) away with three in the seventh end. Robertson was in fourth place in the 12-team field entering last night’s late draw versus Alberta’s Mark Johnson (3-1), in a game that was in progress at press time.

Robertson, who curled 86 per cent in the morning matchup, has two more key draws today, facing Quebec’s Denis Laflamme (1-5) in the afternoon and the Northwest Territories’ Glen Hudy (2-4) tonight.

Meanwhile, Fowler’s foursome of third Maureen Bonar, second Cathy Gauthier and lead Allyson Stewart, representing the Brandon Curling Club, improved to 5-1 to hold a share of first place with Saskatchewan’s Lorraine Arguin after the Manitoba champions trounced Prince Edward Island’s Jennifer Scott 11-2 in the morning draw. Fowler, who curled 84 per cent to lead her team, broke a 1-1 tie with three in the third end. She scored two more in the fourth, another triple in the sixth and added a deuce in the seventh to finish off the Islanders (3-3).

Fowler was facing Alberta’s Glenys Bakker (4-2) in the late draw, which was in progress at press time last night. Manitoba meets Quebec’s Catherine Derick (1-4) this afternoon and the Northwest Territories’ Ann McKellar-Gillis (1-5) tonight.
