Canada Cup Curling Opens In Estevan

Defending champion Jennifer Jones is right where she wants to be after the opening day of the Canada Cup.

The Winnipeg skip sits 2-0 after downing Darcy Robertson 9-7 in Wednesday's evening draw after opening her tournament with a 7-5 win over Calgary's Chelsea Carey (0-2).

Jones trailed by two heading into the final end, but scored three points to take the victory.

On the men's side, Edmonton's Brendan Bottcher beat defending champion Reid Carruthers of Winnipeg 9-5, and Calgary's Kevin Koe downed Regina's Matthew Dunstone 9-6.
     
Round-robin play continues Thursday.
