Law, Scott to meet in first playoff game

Tasaka, Lewis in tiebreaker for fourth

Adina Tasaka won her final game of the round robin tournament to tie Kristy Lewis of Richmond for the last playoff position this morning at the Scotties B.C. Women's Curling Championship in Cloverdale.

Last year’s finalists have topped the standings following the round robin portion of the Scotties B.C. Women’s Curling Championships in Cloverdale, earning the shortest route to Sunday’s championship game.

Kelley Law, last year’s runner-up, clinched first place prior to this morning’s (Friday) final draw. She defeated Jen Fewster 7-4 to finish with an 8-1 (won-loss) record.

Defending champion Kelly Scott nailed down second place this morning, defeating Roselyn Craig of Duncan 6-3. Both curlers had 6-2 records going into the contest, and were tied 2-2 before Scott scored a pair in the seventh inning and stole two more in the eighth on her way to a 6-3 victory.

Scott and Lewis will go head-to-head in a playoff contest tonight at 7 p.m. at the Cloverdale Curling Club. The winner advances to Sunday’s championship game, the loser plays in a semifinal contest tomorrow (Saturday) night.

The loss dropped Craig into third place, and a playoff date Saturday morning against Kristy Lewis of Richmond. Lewis had to defeat Adina Tasaka 6-5 of New Westminster in a tiebreaker match Friday afternoon to earn the fourth playoff position after both teams finished with 5-4 records.

Lewis failed to clinch the final playoff berth after a 9-7 loss Friday morning to Karla Thompson of Kamloops, who scored three in the 10th end for the victory. That opened the door for Tasaka to grab a share of fourth place, and the Royal City Curling Club member walked through by stealing three in the 11th end for a 9-6 decision over Patti Knezevic of Prince George.

The winner of the thirdfourth playoff game will advance to Saturday night’s semifinal.
