Mean­while, within the On­tario women’s curl­ing scene, the Julie Tip­pin rink from Wood­stock is cur­rently hold­ing the hot hand, a fact that both north­ern pow­er­houses can at­test to fol­low­ing their week­end at the Stu Sells Bon­spiel in Toronto.

Tracy Fleury, Crys­tal Web­ster, Jenna Walsh and Amanda Gates posted a 3-1 record in round robin play, drop­ping along a 6-5 de­ci­sion in ex­tra ends to Tip­pin and com­pany, while mix­ing in vic­to­ries over Hai­ley Arm­strong (9-7), Eve Belisle (6-4) and Mary-Anne Arse­nault (4-3). The Idyl­wylde Curl­ing Club rep­re­sen­ta­tives qual­i­fied for the quar­ter-fi­nals, but were sent home by Chrissy Cadorin’s four­some, who scored three in the first and cruised to a 5-3 win.

Mean­while, Ken­dra Lilly and Krista McCarville and mates matched the Fleury record at 3-1, with wins over Hol­lie Dun­can (5-1), Jestyn Mur­phy (7-3) and Robyn MacPhee (9-7), be­fore los­ing 6-4 to Sherry Mid­daugh. Team McCarville sur­vived their quar­ter-fi­nal, outscor­ing Jacqueline Har­ri­son 7-5, but were then beaten 6-5 by Tip­pin in the semi­fi­nals, also in an ex­tra end.

In the end, Tip­pin got the bet­ter of Cadorin in the fi­nal, record­ing a steal of two in the eighth end to seal the vic­tory. With Thanks­giv­ing be­hind us, sev­eral lo­cal teams are in ac­tion this week­end, in­clud­ing Chris Gli­b­ota, Dustin Mont­pel­lier, Eric Geli­nas and Matt Gor­don at the Stroud Slee­man Cash Spiel (Tan­ner Hor­gan rink is also there), while Me­gan Smith, Kira Brun­ton, Sara Guy and Kate Sherry com­pete in the Bramp­ton U21 Ju­nior Cash Spiel.
