CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. — Team Canada’s Jennifer Jones has bounced back from her first loss with a 9-3 win over New Brunswick at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts on Monday afternoon.

The win improves Jones’ record to 3-1, good enough for third place behind Ontario and Saskatchewan, both 4-0.

“The key is to not having back-to-back losses,” Jones said. “We curled better, obviously. Caught onto the ice. It was a little bit more consistent, so it was easier to make some good shots out there.”

Nova Scotia’s Heather Smith-Dacey improved to 3-2 with a 12-6 win over B.C., dropping Kelly Scott to 2-2.

“We’re finally getting our feet under us and playing well,” Smith-Dacey said. “Executing back-to-back shots and getting something going.”

In other afternoon games, Quebec’s Marie-France Larouche improved to 2-2 with a 7-6 win over Manitoba’s Cathy Overton-Clapham, who fell to 1-4.

The Territories won its first draw, edging Newfoundland 6-5.

Both Saskatchewan and Ontario will put their unbeaten records on the line Monday night.
