Geri-Lynn Ramsay in action at the 2014 Players’ Championship at Eastlink Arena in Summerside on Wednesday morning.
Ramsay is the second stone for the Crystal Webster rink, which defeated Michele Jaggi 7-4 in an extra end in Wednesday morning’s draw at the Players’ Championship curling event at Eastlink Arena.
“It feels pretty great,” said Ramsay after the game. “It’s definitely different to be curling in an arena back home instead of a club. It’s nice to see all the fans in the stands.”
Ramsay and lead Jenn Gates were sweeping Webster’s final “as hard as we could” to get it by a guard out front while third stone Cathy Overton-Clapham called the shot from the house. Webster was able to knock out Jaggi’s shot stone and count three.
“It was really well thrown,” said Ramsay. “I don’t think we knew we had it when she let it go, it was a little tight by the guard.
“But we knew if we got through the hole we were making the shot.”
In other morning action, Stefanie Lawton handed Heather Nedohin her second loss in a row with a 5-1 win. It was the first game for Lawton, who won the 2012 Players’ Championship in Summerside.
Val Sweeting made an incredible shot with her final stone to score three in the final eighth end and record an 8-7 come-from-behind win over Sherry Middaugh.
The other morning game had Margaretha Sigfridsson double Julie Hastings 6-3.
