In other Draw 3 games, Shelley Nichols lost her second in a row, falling 6-4 to Stacie Deveraux's Bally Haly foursome, and Cindy Miller scored two in the tenth to give her rink a 6-5 win over Susan Hannan.

Draw 4 action saw Barb Pinsent quickly dispose of Michelle Jewer, 9-1 in six ends, highlighted by back-to-back scores of three in the fifth and sixth ends; Devereaux downed Miller 5-3; and Hannan got her first win by defeating Nichols 10-9 in 11 ends after Nichols scored three with the hammer in the 10th to tie the score

Play continues today for the seven entries - all from St. John's, out of either Bally Haly or the Re/Max Centre - with Draw 5 at 10 a.m. and Draw 6 starting at 5 p.m. The final draw is set for Saturday morning.

Any necessary tie-breakers and semifinals are scheduled for later that same day, with the final set to go at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m. on Sunday, depending on whether the top team gets through the round-robin undefeated. In that case, it needs to be beaten twice.

The winner will represent Newfoundland and Labrador at the Canadian Scotties championship Feb. 21- March 1 in Victoria, B.C.
