MONTREAL - Stefanie Lawton is hoping her third crack at a national curling championship is the charm.

But the Saskatchewan skip only has to look at the career of her third, Sherry Anderson, to realize the climb from Prince Albert, Sask., to the top of the granite rock can be long and arduous — if you ever get there at all.

Anderson, asked if it’s about time she wins this darn thing, doesn’t mince any words.

“I ain’t gettin’ any younger,” she said Monday after Saskatchewan had dispatched New Brunswick 9-3 to stay in a pack of one-loss teams chasing Rachel Homan’s undefeated Team Canada foursome.

In curling terms, Anderson’s 50 years haven’t been easy ones either.
