MacInnes, who improved to 4-2, scored three times in the sixth end to break a 3-3 tie and a take a lead she would hold the rest of the way.

Scott's loss allowed Patti Knezevic of Prince George to move into a tie for first place after Draw 6. Knezevic had little trouble with Simone Groundwater of WIlliams Lake, winning 11-7.

Marla Mallett of the Cloverdale club moved alongside MacInnes into a third -place tie with an 8-5 victory over Lisa Olsen of the Royal City Curling Club.
