VIDEO: Team Jones scores three for thrilling Grand Slam win

TRURO: Team Kaitlyn Jones, which includes Colchester County cousins Lindsey and Karlee Burgess, earned an exciting, nail biting 6-5 win over Alberta’s Team Einarson, who are the current top rated number 1 team on Wednesday night.

Team Jones trailed 5-3 before Skip Kaitlyn Jones had to score at least two with the last rock, and she did better scoring three for the nail biting win for the junior women, playing before role models from the national curling scene, before the home crowd at the Rath Eastlink Centre.

While it didn’t seem to be their best game put forward, the team battled back and while at times looked tense, they worked through it and got the win. They sit tied now with Team Rachel Homan in Group C at 2-0.
