Alison MacInnes of Abbotsford ran her record to 2-0 by overcoming a 5-2 deficit after four ends to edge Cloverdale's Marla Mallett 9-8.

Simone Brosseau (1-1) of the Juan de Fuca Curling Club scored five in the eighth end, then shook hands with Simone Groundwater (0-2) of Williams Lake in a 9-3 win.

Roberta Kuhn of Vernon (1-1) built up a 6-1 lead after seven ends and hung on for a 6-3 win over Lori Olsen (0-2) of Royal City.
