WINNIPEG - B.C.'s Kelly Scott is just one win away from advancing to the Roar of the Rings Canadian Curling Trials in her hometown.

Kelly, who is supported by two other native Manitobans -- second Sasha Carter and lead Sarah Wazney -- will face Alberta' Renee Sonnenberg in the Page playoff A-B game of the Road to the Roar Pre-Trials event in Kitchener, Ont., on Saturday at 6 p.m.

The winner will qualify for the trials to be played in Winnipeg, Dec. 1-8.

Sonnenberg sunk Ontario's Cathy Auld 10-7 in the B final Friday.

"You think, 'Women's A-B game, Saturday night on TSN,' but when I was out there, it was just, 'This is so cool.' The arena, the curling ice, the great teams - it's what I've played 25 years for," Sonnenberg said in a CCA release.

In other women's play, 2010 Olympic silver medallist Cheryl Bernard bounced fellow Albertan Crystal Webster, who had Winnipeg's Cathy Overton-Clapham at third, 5-3.
