Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

SAULT STE. MARIE, Ont. (CP) — On­tario’s Krista McCarville scored three in the sixth and two more in the sev­enth en route to a 10-3 win in seven ends over Man­i­toba’s Jill Thurston in the tie-breaker Fri­day at the Scot­ties Tour­na­ment of Hearts.

With the win, McCarville will face B.C.’s Kelly Scott in the Three ver­sus Four Page Play­off con­test Satur­day af­ter­noon.

“ It feels good,” said McCarville. “Step one is done. We’ve got a few more games to bat­tle. Now we’ve got a tough one to­mor­row against Kelly Scott.”

McCarville and Thurston fin­ished the round robin tied with Scott for third in the stand­ings with 7-4 records.

On­tario’s big end came af­ter Man­i­toba had a chance to draw for two but only came away with one in the fifth. The On­tario lead at the time would have been 5-4.

“It was a killer,” Thurston said. “ We had op­por­tu­ni­ties to put rocks in the right places. I just don’t think that we did that. (On­tario) was just right on the money. They throw that beau­ti­ful quiet wait and it’s tough to roll out. They made ev­ery­thing to­day.”
