Three teams had pulled away from the pack after the sixth draw at the Scotties B.C. Women’s Curling Championship in Cloverdale.

Kelley Law remained perfect, winning her sixth consecutive game with a decisive 8-1 victory over Jill Winters of Nelson Wednesday evening, a contest that lasted just five ends.

Law, the runner-up at last year’s Scotties in Penticton, faced her most difficult test earlier in the day when she stole one in the 10th end for a 6-3 win over Duncan’s Roselyn Craig, who was attempting a draw for two to tie the game with her final shot.

The loss was the only one of the competition so far for Craig, who is tied with defending champion Kelly Scott of Kelowna for second place at 5-1 (won-loss).

Craig rebounded from the afternoon loss to come from behind and edge Patti Knezevic of Prince George 6-5 Wednesday night. Craig trailed 5-3 after six ends, but ended up with the victory after stealing single points in both the ninth and 10th ends.

Scott, who is also 5-1 with the lone loss coming to Law on Tuesday afternoon, was also handed a victory Wednesday night when she stole the winning point in an extra end to defeat Kristy Lewis of Richmond.

Four teams advance to a Page playoff which starts tomorrow (Friday), and three teams are tied for the final playoff position with 3-3 records.

Jen Fewster of Prince George scored one in the 10th end to top Adina Tasaka of New Westminster 5-4, a result which left both teams tied for fourth place with Lewis.
