Team Jennifer Jones will Represent Manitoba


WINNIPEG, MB. – Jennifer Jones and her team will represent Manitoba at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Penticton this year.

Jones and her team Kaitlyn Lawes, Jill Officer, Dawn McEwen and Coach Wendy Morgan, won the Scotties Tournament of Hearts by defeating Darcy Robertson (Assiniboine Memorial) 7-6 in the provincial final game in Killarney.

The Jones team led 4-2 at the mid-game break but there was no quit in Team Robertson. After Jones blanked the sixth, Robertson forced Jones to a single on the seventh and then scored three on the eight to tie the game. A steal of one on the ninth end gave the Robertson foursome a one point lead coming home.

The rocks were in play to set up another force and an extra end but the comeback ended when Robertson’s last rock double kill attempt left Jones with shot rock and a draw to the four foot circle for two and the 7-6 victory.
