KINGSTON, ONT. - Something has to give Wednesday afternoon.

Two undefeated teams, Manitoba and Team Canada, will go head-to-head.

It's Jennifer Jones vs. Heather Nedohin, both 6-0 after Tuesday's games.

Jones and her Manitoba foursome aren't getting their undies in a knot, though. It's just another step. They always knew the path to Sunday's Scotties Tournament of Hearts championship game wouldn't be easy.

It's a situation the St. Vital Curling Club team has been in before, one they're comfortable with. It's a challenge they've been eager to get into again for a long time.

The Jones foursome beat a winless Alberta team 9-6 Tuesday night at the K Rock Centre. Now 0-6, Alberta rested skip Kristie Moore and let alternate Renee Sonnenberg throw last stones.


Manitoba had a 7-2 lead by the fifth-end break.
