Kelowna's Kelly Scott sits alone atop the standings past the halfway mark of the round robin at the B.C. women's curling championship at the North Shore Winter Club.

Scott, Dailene Sivertson, Sasha Carter and Jacquie Armstrong pushed their record to a perfect 5-0 on Wednesday morning with a 6-5 win over Richmond's Kelly Thompson.

Scott built up a 4-1 lead through five ends, but needed a single with the hammer in the 10th end to earn the victory.

The Scott rink is the two-time defending B.C. champion.

Jen Rusnell from Prince George is second in the standings at 4-1, while Victoria's Roselyn Craig, Kelley Law of Royal City and Allison MacInness from Kamloops share third spot at 3-2.

On Wednesday night, the Scott foursome will play Jen Rusnell in a battle for first.

The playoffs begin Friday.

The final of the B.C. women's curling championship is set for Sunday at 4:30 p.m.
