Fleury and Team Canada still undefeated - but with a big game tonight
2024-03-19

The Team Canada rink of Rachel Homan (skip), Tracy Fleury (vice), Emma Miskew (second) and Sarah Wilkes (lead) will take their 5-0 record at the BKT Tires Women's World Championship into battle with the only remaining undefeated team in the field later tonight.

An 8-7 extra end victory over Stefania Constantini from Italy set the stage for a showdown between the women donning the Maple Leaf and the equally talented Swiss foursome skipped by Silvana Tirinzoni, with Alina Paetz throwing fourth stones.

A lifelong Sudburian and product of the Idylwylde Golf & Country Club's Little Rocks program, Fleury and her mates started the week quickly, jumping out to a 7-3 lead over Sweden (Anna Hasselborg) and holding on for the 7-6 win.

The team maintained their momentum with victories over Denmark (7-4 - Madeleine Dupont), the United States (10-6 - Tabitha Peterson) and Norway (9-4 - Marianne Roervik) before being pushed to the limit by the ninth ranked team in the world, the Italians now at 4-1 along with Denmark and Korea.

The encounter tonight will mark the midway point of the schedule for Homan and company, with two game sets slatted for Wednesday (Japan & Turkey), Thursday (Estonia & New Zealand) and Friday (Scotland & Korea).

The top six teams will move on to the playoffs following round robin play, with the top two seeds advancing directly to the semi-finals as Canada looks to capitalize on home ice advantage in Sydney, Nova Scotia.
