Vegreville’s Val is in a hole early on at the Grand Slam of Curling’s ‘Masters’ in Lloydminster ...
Val Sweeting and Company dropped to 0-2 at the second slam event of the season on Wednesday after a six end, 7-2 loss to Winnipeg’s Kerri Einarson, who improved to 2-0.
Team Sweeting will have to win their next two contests to have any hopes of playing in this weekend’s playoffs.
Up next for Val is another surprisingly struggling rink in Team Homan of Ottawa.
Homan, the reigning world champion and owner of three Masters Titles, is also 0-2.
The two teams square off on Sheet C at 4pm Thursday.
