Hilden's Karlee Burgess, 15, throws second stones for the young Chester Curling Club team, which is skipped by Mary Fay, 15, and also includes Jennifer Smith, 15, and Janique LeBlanc, 16.

Fay (4-1) takes on New Brunswick's Jessica Daigle (2-2) at 9:30 a.m.

Fay won both of her games on Monday, doubling P.E.I.'s Veronica Smith (2-3) 10-5 in the evening draw after topping Northern Ontario's Krysta Burns (2-2) 9-4 in the afternoon. The results have her tied for first in Pool B with Ontario's Molly Greenwood (4-1).

Fay opened a 3-0 lead in the first end against Smith, who countered with two in the fourth. Fay took control with one in the fifth, three in the sixth and one in the seventh for an 8-2 cushion. Smith scored three in the eighth to make it 8-5 before Fay iced it with two in the ninth.

Fay erased a 4-3 deficit to Burns by scoring three points in the seventh end for a 6-4 edge. Fay then clinched the victory with three more points in the eighth.

The top four teams from each of the two seven-team pools advance to the playoff round after a six-game round robin.

Fay qualified for the event by winning the provincial championship over the holidays at Lakeshore Curling Club.
