One Peter­bor­ough Curl­ing Club alum­nus is out and an­other still alive at the 2018 On­tario Scot­ties Tour­na­ment of Hearts at the Whitby Curl­ing Club.

Stephanie Thomp­son, curl­ing sec­ond for Unionville’s Kate­lyn Wa­sylkiw, saw her first trip to the On­tario Scot­ties come to an end on Fri­day. They fell to 0-3 and were elim­i­nated from the triple-knock­out event with a 9-4 af­ter­noon loss to Thorn­hill’s Chrissy Cadorin. It was a close game un­til Cadorin scored five in the sev­enth end.

Jenna Bon­ner, also a Peter­bor­ough na­tive, is lead for skip Cathy Auld of Lis­towel. They’re 5-1 af­ter three wins on Fri­day.

In the morn­ing, Auld won a re­mark­able see-saw bat­tle with Oakville’s Heather Hegges­tad 11-9. She scored three in the 10th end to rally from a cou­ple of deficits. Auld trailed 4-0 af­ter two ends and ral­lied to tie it 5-5 by scor­ing three in the fifth end. Hegges­tad re­bounded to build a 9-6 lead af­ter eight ends but Auld scored five over the fi­nal two ends.

Auld fol­lowed that by mak­ing short work of Mis­sis­sauga’s Jac­que­line Harrison who shook hands trail­ing 9-3 in the eighth end. Auld jumped to a 4-0 lead and never looked back. She scored two in the sixth and sev­enth ends to seal the win.

In the night draw, Auld beat Cale­don’s Al­li­son Flaxey 9-4 by scor­ing four in the sev­enth and two in the eighth be­fore they shook hands in the ninth end.
