LIVERPOOL, N.S. – After Draw 10 at the 2021 Home Hardware Curling Pre-Trials, Krista McCarville’s team stands alone.

The Thunder Bay rink scored a 6-3 win on Wednesday night over Yellowknife’s Kerry Galusha rink, improving to 4-0 at the event, which will qualify two teams for the upcoming Canadian Olympic trials.

McCarville took the early lead in the second, scoring a single, then stole another point in the fourth and two more in the fifth to jump in front 4-0 at the break.

Galusha (1-2) finally got on the board in the sixth, but gave it right back in the seventh, McCarville, Sarah Potts, Ashley Sippala and Kendra Lilly going up 5-1.

The Northwest Territories hopeful battled back with a pair in the seventh to close the gap to 5-3, but McCarville put it away, picking up a point in the ninth.

McCarville takes on Kamloops, B.C.’s Corryn Brown (3-1) on Thursday night, their only match of the day. Brown fell from the ranks of the unbeaten earlier on Wednesday, dropping a 9-5 decision to Dundas, Ont.’s Jaqueline Harrison (2-1).

McCarville wraps up round-robin play on Friday afternoon against Moose Jaw, Sask.’s Penny Barker (2-2).
