Scott five-peat off to a perfect start

Having lost out in her chance to represent Canada at the Olympics, Kelly Scott and her Kelowna Curling Club foursome have set their sights on another BC title.

Scott has rolled through the competition through two days as she looks for a record fifth straight BC Scotties title.

On day two Tuesday, Scott dumped rival Marla Mallett 7-4 and Patti Knezevic of the host Prince George Curling Club 8-6.

In the opener, Scott cracked deuces in the second and fourth while holding Mallett to just four singles throughout the game. She put it away with a steal of one in 10.

Tuesday night Scott held off a late rally by Knezevic to win by two.

Scott scored three in the fourth to take a 4-2 lead then grabbed a pair in six and a steal of one in seven for a commanding four point lead.

Knezevic rallied with two in eight and steal of one in nine before Scott closed it out with one in 10.

Scott, 4-0, holds a one game lead over the field and, barring a total collapse over the last five draws, is all but assured of a spot in the playoffs.

Knezevic, Mallett, Kesa Van Osch is 3-1 and Sarah Wark is 2-2.

Scott will face Shawna Jensen (0-4) and Amy Gibson (1-3) Wednesday.
