Draw 13, Midway

Before this draw, and even in the early ends, The TSN announcers were all commenting on how many missed shots there have been this year at The Scott Tournament of Hearts. And, like me, they were particularly hard on PEI, pointing out that the PEI curling percentages were very low (though we are unable to know this because Curlcast and the CCA no longer make cumulative percentages available).

Well wouldn't you know it: over the first five ends, PEI curled 88% and led Quebec 3-2. Most impressive were the rebounds by O-Rourke (skip, throwing 2nd stones) curling at 93% and Carmody (throwing skip's stones) curling at 97%. These two had been the weaker members of the rink in earlier draws but have been very impressive so far.

I am quite warming to the PEI rink - I like the chatter between O'Rourke and Carmody, and of course both are shooting awfully well right now.

PEI is middle of the pack at 74% for the week. On the Scotties web site if you go to the Completed Games section and select the most recent finished draw there will be a link "Click here for the Scoring and Percentages Summary Report for this Draw". That report includes the game by game stats for all teams.

(Man, that sure is well-hidden!)
