Everything goes awry for Cadorin

Thornhill's Chrissy Cadorin experienced both the highs and the lows the Ontario Scott Tournament of Hearts has to offer.

The 24-year-old skip, representing the Guelph Curling Club, finished the round-robin portion of the event atop the standings among 10 teams with a 7-2 record, but struggled in the playoffs, dropping two games by lopsided scores.

She was eliminated yesterday morning, losing 9-5 to Kanata's Jenn Hanna in the semi-final.

Cadorin also lost the Page Playoff game Saturday night against Krista Scharf of Thunder Bay, who cruised to an 11-2 victory.

LIKE NIGHT AND DAY

So what was different for Cadorin between the round-robin, where she performed so well, and the playoffs, where she struggled right from the start?

"I think the ice was definitely different," said Cadorin. "We didn't go out there doing anything different. We played our game, but just kind of got unlucky and got some bad breaks and couldn't get anything started on this type of ice."

Cadorin had trouble with her draw weight during the playoffs.

Yesterday in the semi-final, she allowed Hanna to steal the first end.

Then came a disastrous second end.

Attempting a hit in the back of the rings for a deuce, Cadorin wrecked on a Hanna guard in front and moved that stone into the rings to give the local squad a two-point steal.

'GOOD PLAYERS (REBOUND)'

"The good players (rebound) from that," said Cadorin. "I missed a shot, and then another shot. What can you do? You can't make them all, and I've got to go with it, I guess."

Cadorin and her teammates Denna Schell, Leigh Armstrong and Stephanie Leachman will take the next few weeks to regroup and plan for the future.

"I'm not too sure what the plans are for my team," said Cadorin. "We just finished this off with a couple of hard losses. I think we'll just wait it out and see. Hopefully, we'll be together next year and give it another shot."
