SUDBURY – Krista McCarville won’t run the table at the Northern Ontario women’s curling championship.
In fact, she might have a battle on her hands.
After cruising to a pair of wins to open the play-downs, being contested in Sudbury, McCarville was stopped in her tracks on Friday night by hometown hopeful Tracy Fleury, looking to re-capture the title for the first time since 2015.
Fleury took a 4-1 lead with deuces in the second and fourth end, then put the game away in the sixth, scoring three points to jump in front 7-3. After McCarville, who hails from Thunder Bay, was held to one in the seventh, Fleury ended it with two more in the eighth to end the match.
McCarville (2-1) takes on Piper Croisier on Saturday morning to wrap up round-robin play. She`ll take on Fleury in the final, scheduled for 7:30 p.m.
