  1. Cristen has to draw the eight foot for two - ticks the guard but still makes it.
  2. Brady is right next to me commenting on Cristin's strategy for the webcast. There'll be an interesting conversation in the Clark house tonight.
    Cristen makes a nice almost double - the second rock moving to the outside. Hamilton flashes on the now shot red, red draws the top of the house behind cover to lie two. Hamilton draws
  3. Red's been struggling to get yellow rocks out. Cristin doubles and sticks on the last shot.
  4. Red trying to keep it clean. Cristen changes her mind for her last shot and decides to take out the outside rock which must be second - rolls towards the center. Hamilton hits and sticks.
  5. Red draws near the button partly covered. Hamilton freezes dead nose, Cristin's push out almost works.
  6. Hamilton guards, red draws behind, Hamilton guards again. Red flashes. Hamilton draws the house nicely. Red double peels and rolls away. Confusion reigns with come rocks coming off the side boards. One red and one yellow left in the house, no guards. Hamilton guards but it's barely over the hog line. Patty peels the guard. Hamilton guards more tightly. Patti attempts a runback, but leaves a guard instead. Hamilton draws top of the house for third shot. Cristen makes a great pick of the shot rock out just clearing the guard to lie two. Hamilton draw is just a bit heavy and Cristen doesn't have to throw her last rock.

  1. Full house with mostly yellow as Patti follows the previous rock to lie one. Stolt counters. Clark bumps but rolls to the side. Stolt draws to lie one or two. Clarks draws on top of the two counters.
  2. Trading takeouts until Clark misses one and Stolt is on track for a deuce. Stolt comes up light for a guard. Clark removes the shot stone. Stolt draws behind the guard. Clark is light leaving Stolt a draw for two, but she's heavy.
  3. As Clark throws her first rock, the house is empty with a long center guard. Stolt hits and rolls but not out. Clark hits and sticks.
  4. Clean house. Clark's last rock hits and stays. Stolt hits but doesn't quite roll out.
  5. Trading takeouts. Clark's last rock hits and stays.
  6. Stolt hits and rolls out.
  7. Stolt third draws the side partly covered against two red at back of the house. Clark hits and stays. Stolt hits and stays. Clark hits and stays. Stolt hits and stays (as she has to because of the two in the back).
  8. Clark hits and stays.
  9. There are actually rocks in play as Stolt lies two behind a long red guard. Christina makes a great double around the guard. So we're back to hit and hit. Stolt draws on her first shot - ignoring the red biter - but is heavy. Clark's draw is light. Stolt hits the biter.
  10. Clark calls for Allen to put a guard in front of a yellow guard and two red shot stones - it's a bit wide but does make the runback difficult. Stolt peels the guard. Allen throws another guard that's probably easier to double with the other guard. Stolt only gets one of the guards. Clark hogs her guard. Stolt makes the runback but rolls almost out. Clarks draws the top of the house but is only third shot. Stolt has to raise for one.
  11. As Chistina's last rock is up, red is shot with a yellow just in front of it - behind a yellow center line guard. Clark and Allen decide on the peel. Then for the next shot, they decide on the guard, but it's in the house. Stolt draws to the top of the four. Allen draws in front of it. Stolt draws in front of that. Allen hits a bit to the side. Stolt is a bit narrow and peels one of the many guards. Clark guards close the big clutch of rocks. Stolt doesn't have any good options - goes for a complicated raise raise takeout. She's narrow and Clark doesn't have to throw the hammer.
