The defending champions remain the only unbeaten team at the BC Scotties, and seem to get stronger was the tournament progresses.

Kelly Scott of Kelowna stole six points in three ends, and went on to a 10-1 triumph Tuesday evening over Kirsten Fox of the Royal City Curling Club in New Westminster.

Scott improved to 4-0 (won-lost) and leads the 10-team competition after four of nine draws.

Fox went into the match knowing a win would vault her group into a share of the Scotties lead, but fell behind 8-0 after just five ends.

Patti Knezevic of Prince George of Marla Mallett of the host Cloverdale Curling Club remain a game back of Scott after their wins in Draw 4 Tuesday evening.

Knezevic scored one in the 10th to edge Allison MacInnes of Abbotsford 8-7, while Mallett handled Roberta Kuhn of Vernon 9-3. Both winners improved to 3-1.

Fox, MacInnes and Marilou Richter of the Royal City club are all tied for fourth at 2-2. Richter edged Simone Brosseau of Juan de Fuca 6-5.

In the only other match of Draw 4, Lori Olsen of Royal City got her first win, defeating Simone Groundwater of Williams Lake 7-5.

The top four teams will advance to the playoff round Friday through Sunday.
