Calgary’s Chelsea Carey kept her perfect record intact Tuesday morning with a 9-3 rout of Toronto’s Allison Flaxey at the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings.

Carey (4-0) opened with a deuce and had a six-point lead at the mid-game break. The teams shook hands after the minimum eight ends.

“I didn’t expect that to be quite as easy as it was,” Carey said. “They’re a better team than that. But we’ll take it because we’ve had a couple of close nail biters that were hard on the nerves.”

“So it’s nice to have one that was a little easier.”
