Manitoba, skipped by Jennifer Jones, continued their charge to the finals at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts with two wins on Friday in the Championship Pool.

Team Canada conceded to Manitoba in the second draw on Friday, 10-4. Earlier that day, Manitoba defeated Alberta 6-2. The wins push Manitoba into the Page Playoff on Saturday.

Team B.C., from Nanaimo, conceded to Nova Scotia 10-4 in the first draw and then lost 7-5 against Northern Ontario. That game sealed Northern Ontario’s trip to the Page Playoff on Saturday.

The top four teams from the Championship Pool move on to the Page Playoff. The Wild Card Team finished in first place, followed by Manitoba, Nova Scotia and Northern Ontario in fourth.

Who to watch:

The 2 p.m. draw has Nova Scotia (overall record 9-2) against Northern Ontario (overall record 8-3). They faced each other in the first game of the tournament with Northern Ontario conceding 10-4.

The 7 p.m. Page Playoff game features the Wild Card versus Manitoba. These two teams faced each other in earlier in the week with the Wild Card winning 9-4. For Kerri Einarson, who skips the Wild Card team, it was the first time she defeated Manitoba skip Jennifer Jones in 18 tries.

“We got ourselves into the 1 versus 2 game and I am ecstatic. I am so excited and I have goosebumps all over,” Einarsson, after clinching her spot in the Page Playoff.
