CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. — Ontario and Saskatchewan remained undefeated with victories at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts on Monday morning.

Ontario's Rachel Homan defeated host P.E.I., 8-2, in a game that ended after eight ends.

One sheet over, Saskatchewan's Amber Holland struggled early, but fought back from a 4-2 deficit through seven ends to defeat Alberta's Shannon Kleibrink, 8-6.

Homan and Holland lead the standings at 4-0.

"We're feeling pretty comfortable," Holland said. "But a lot of week left, a lot of games left. We know it's not getting any easier."

Homan, just 21, shot a sizzling 97% in her victory and, for now, leads all skips in accuracy at 82% overall, one point better than Holland and Jennifer Jones of Team Canada.

Jones and B.C.'s Kelly Scott are 2-1.

Homan puts her perfect record on the line against Scott on Monday night, while Holland faces Quebec's Marie-France Larouche.

Canada plays New Brunswick and P.E.I. today. Manitoba (1-3) also faces Quebec (1-2).
