SASKATOON -- Northern Ontario's Krista McCarville rink dropped a second decision in three outings at the Olympic curling trials in Saskatoon, Sask, falling 5-4 to Casey Scheidegger.

Scheidegger, who hails from Lethbridge, Alta., scored two in the 10th end on Sunday night to eke out a 5-4 win over McCarville, Sarah Potts, Ashley Sippala and Kendra Lilly.

McCarville who trailed 3-1 after seven, scored two to tie in the eighth and then stole the go-ahead point in the ninth, but couldn't hang on and slipped to 1-2.

The mostly Thunder Bay-based rink will look to get back in the win column on Monday, with a match against former Northern Ontario rival Tracy Fleury (2-0). Fleury, a Sudbury, Ont. native, now curls out of Manitoba.

It's the lone match of the day at the trials for McCarville.

On the men's side, Sault Ste. Marie's Brad Jacobs is tied with Newfoundland and Labrador's Brad Gushue at 2-0 atop the leaderboard.
