In today’s semi-final at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Charlottetown the Saskatchewan rink, skipped by Amber Holland, defeated the Ontario rink skipped by Rachel Homan 7-5. That sets up a rubber match in the final tomorrow against Team Canada skipped by Jennifer Jones.
During the round robin Holland’s foursome, which also includes sisters Kim and Tammy Schneider, along with Heather Kalenchuk, defeated Team Canada 9-3. In the Page Playoff game, Jones and her mates Kaitlyn Lawes, Jill Officer and Dawn Askin, upended the #1 seeded Saskatchewan rink 10-9 in an extra end.
Jones will be gunning for her fifth Canadian championship while Holland will be looking to earn her first Canadian title. At stake is a berth in next month’s World Women’s Curling Championship in Denmark. Game time on TSN is 5:30 p.m.
