PENTICTION, B.C. – Casey Scheidegger and Team Alberta opened the championship pool at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts with a win and a loss Thursday, Feb. 1.

Scheidegger opened the day with an 8-4 win over Northern Ontario’s Tracy Fleury. Alberta took command in the fifth end by scoring three.

That was followed by Scheidegger’s second loss of the tournament, an 8-3 decision won by Nova Scotia’s Mary-Anne Arsenault. Arsenault, who won five national titles and two world championships as a member of Colleen Jones’ team, scored three in the eighth end to seal the win over Alberta.

Scheidegger is now in a three-way tie for second, at 7-2, with Arsenault and Manitoba’s Jennifer Jones. The wildcard team skipped by Kerri Einarson is in first at 8-1. Alberta will take on Manitoba in Friday’s afternoon draw, then Einarson in the evening draw.

Following the conclusion of play Friday, the top four teams will advance to the page playoff Saturday. A tie-breaker, if necessary, will be played Saturday morning.
