Three game day ends up being too much for Team SK at Scotties

It is safe to say Robyn Silvernagle and her North Battleford rink will be getting a solid sleep on Thursday night.

In what was a busy Thursday for Team Saskatchewan at the Scotties, Silvernagle defeated New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island before falling to Team Wildcard in the evening draw as Jennifer Jones handed Silvernagle an 8-3 loss dropping the host rink to a record of 5-4.

“That was a very long day!” a tired Silvernagle said following the defeat to Jones which saw the team play four games in a stretch of 24 hours having lost to Northern Ontario on Wednesday night before playing the three games on Thursday.  “In your third game of the day, you’re definitely going to have both mental and physical fatigue.”

With games on Friday against Ontario’s Rachel Homan and B.C’s Corryn Brown, Silvernagle still has a chance at making the playoffs, but she must win both.  The game-plan for Silvernagle and her rink is the same as it was when they started the event.

“Just go play fearless,” Silvernagle said. “We have nothing to lose. Just go play and have some fun.”

Going into the final day of the championship pool,  Jones, Homan and Manitoba’s Kerri Einarsson are tied for first at 8-1 followed by Northern Ontario’s Krista McCarville at 6-3. Silvernagle and Suzanne Birt of Prince Edward Island are next at 5-4 followed by Team Canada’s Chelsea Carey and Brown at 4-5.

Draws Friday go at 12:30 and 6:30.
