The afternoon draw just wrapped up at the Travelers Curling Club Championship in Ottawa, with the PEI women, skipped by Lisa Jackson from the Cornwall Curling Club losing their first game of the event, after three consecutive wins – a 5-3 decision to Saskatchewan. The Island squad (3-1) had a 3-2 lead after six ends, but the westerners (2-1) stole a deuce and a single for the victory.
