Jones defeats Kleibrink for Grey Power Players' Championship
Jennifer Jones and her Manitoba rink captured their third Grey Power Players' Championship curling event in Grande Prairie, Alta., on Saturday with a 9-7 win over Shannon Kleibrink's Calgary foursome.
The game came down to the final shot in which Jones, with the hammer, scored three to put her team over the top.
The loss was the first one felt by Kleibrink's team in the tournament, finishing with a record of 4-1.
Jones's team advanced to the final by virtue of a 8-4 semifinal win over Cheryl Bernard earlier in the day. Kleibrink's team earned its spot by knocking out Kelly Scott's B.C. rink 8-3 in Saturday's other semifinal.
Men's quarter-finals set
On the men's side, the quarter-finals are set for Saturday night's men's draw.
CBC's feature match-up is between Kevin Martin and Jeff Stoughton, which can be seen starting at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBC Bold and cbcsports.ca.
Also playing are Randy Ferbey vs. Kevin Koe; Brad Gushue vs. Mike McEwen and Glenn Howard vs. Ted Appelman.
There is still one spot available for a bye into the Olympic Trials in the fall.
Ferbey and Stoughton are in a down-to-the-wire race for the final bye in the points race for the bye.
It is a significant reward as the rest of Canadian men's teams will be one of 12 teams that play a pre-trials bonspiel to play for the other four trials placements.
The depth of that field means there are no promises, so this final bye is a big deal.
