Championship round shaping up at Manitoba Scotties

It’s been smooth sailing for the top three seeds at the Manitoba Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Morden.

Top seed Kaitlyn Lawes, second seed Kate Cameron and third seed Jolene Campbell have all won four straight games to remain unbeaten through the first two days of the provincial playdowns.

Team Lawes defeated Emma Jensen of the Heather Curling Club 8-2, and then earned a 12-1 win over Emily Cherwinski of the Assiniboine Memorial Curling Club.

Team Cameron posted a 7-1 win over the Heather CC’s Zoey Terrick on Thursday and followed it up with a 9-1 triumph against Rachel Kaatz.

Campbell picked up a 10-3 win over Kaatz and closed out the day with an 8-4 victory over Portage’s Lisa McLeod.
