“Jessie (Hunkin) curled real well last night (Sunday) and the rest of us curled good enough, but yes as a team, tonight (Monday) was a solid performance,” Silvernagle said.

With Alberta’s strong start to the Scotties, Silvernagle said it was important for Saskatchewan to give it everything they had.

“Sometimes when you know a team is playing really well, you know you have to bring your A-game and curl really well to keep up,” Silvernagle said.

Saskatchewan will turn their attention to a struggling Team Quebec, who owns a 0–4 record.

The two teams square off at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
