MONTREAL -- Val Sweeting could not hide the excitement of reaching her first final at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts. The Alberta skip made an open draw to the button on the final stone of an extra end to defeat Manitobas Chelsea Carey 6-5 in the semifinal on Saturday night. Sweeting will face defending champion Rachel Homans Canada squad in the final on Sunday night. "Its huge," said Sweeting, who is playing in her second Scotties. "To be one game away from a dream come true like that, it feels really good." It wont be easy. Homan is 12-0 in the tournament, including a 10-5 win over Alberta on Tuesday in the round robin. "Its going to be a good game -- close with lots of rocks in play," said Sweeting. "Well try to get them drawing and hope the angles are in our favour. Theyre really good at the high, hard ones, so we have to watch out where our rocks are." Alberta third Joanne Courtney said the key is to keep Homans team from pulling out the three-or-four point ends they have used to roll over most opponents in the tournament. "You cant afford to miss too many against them,"said Courtney. "Theyve scored a lot of big ends this week, so we have to be careful when they have hammer with what we leave around. "Theyre really good at weight. Sometimes you think you put it in the right spot and they make a triple or something." Courtney put her second shot straight through the house in the extra end, but Carey was unable to make her pay for the error. "I knew shed want that one back, but the button was still open and, as a skip, thats all you want," said Sweeting. Sweeting, who finished fourth in the round-robin portion of the tournament, got to the semifinal with an 8-7 victory Saturday morning over Saskatchewans Stefanie Lawton. Carey, who will play in the bronze medal game against Lawton, was dismayed at a spotty performance. "Its terrible, it sucks," she said, lamenting too many missed shots. "There were a bunch throughout the game. "We fought the inch a bit. We played a great game (Friday against Homan) and didnt win, and played a not-great game today and didnt win. Its just not our week, I guess." Manitoba emerged from the first five ends with a 2-1 lead, but neither team looked sharp. After the break, Sweeting hit for two in the sixth to take the lead, then got another in the seventh when Careys draw to the button ran long. The next end, it was Sweeting who went long on a draw and Carey was able to score two. Then Sweeting was a tad heavy on a hit in a bid for two and had to settle for one. She took a 5-4 lead, but gave Carey the hammer going into the 10th. Carey left a draw short on her first rock, then drew for one to send it to an extra end. In the third-versus fourth game, Lawton left draws well short in the seventh and eighth ends to allow Alberta to steal five points en route to an 8-7 victory. The missed shots left her squad down 8-3 with two ends to play. They closed the gap at the end but the outcome was not in doubt. The Saskatchewan skip looked devastated. "I had great draw weight at the beginning of the game and I just seemed to lose it after the sixth end," the Saskatoon resident said. "Just two tough draws and I couldnt make it for the girls and I feel not so good about that." Saskatchewan looked to have taken control with a steal of one in the fifth for a 3-1 lead, but things went south after the break. Lawton missed a double takeout that gave Sweeting an easy two to tie it in the sixth. Then Lawton left a draw short to give Alberta a steal of two in the seventh for its first lead of the game. A crisp Sweeting double takeout in the eight left a crowd of Alberta stones in the house. Lawton tried to draw into them but a groan went up from the grandstands as she left it short again for a steal of three. She rebounded with two in the ninth and Sweetings rink played with fire in the 10th by letting Saskatchewan put stones in the house. But a Sweeting takeout with the last stone sealed the victory despite Saskatchewans steal of two. "The ice was great," said Lawton. "It was a little keener and straighter but nothing we couldnt adjust to. "It was just a matter of making better shots." Now she hopes to salvage something by taking third place. "Were going to come out and play for that bronze medal because wed be very proud to win that one," she said. It is Lawtons third Scotties after appearances in 2005 and 2009, and all three times she lost in the 3-versus-4 game. She finished third in round-robin play at 8-3 but lost to Yukon (2-9) in her last game Friday. Fourth-place Sweeting had lost 8-6 to Lawton in the round robin. Vans Shoes Wholesale Uk .

Kripps, of Summerland, B.C., and Edmontons Barnett used a terrific second run to move up two spots, putting the Canadian duo in medal contention with the final two runs set for Monday (11:15 a.m. ET, streaming live at cbc.NEW YORK -- Stephen Currys last Madison Square Garden performance was breathtaking, the most dazzling display of outside shooting ever at the famed arena. It resulted in a loss, so Curry tried a different tactic Friday night -- and ended up making more MSG history. Curry had 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in three quarters, Klay Thompson added 25 points, and the Golden State Warriors sent the frustrated New York Knicks to a fifth straight loss with a 126-103 victory. Returning to the site of his sensational shooting performance of a year ago, when he scored a career-high 54 points on 11-of-13 shooting from 3-point range, Curry showed off his entire skill set in this one. "To get a win this year is bigger than any stats, but to play well and to impact the game the way I wanted to, it definitely felt great," Curry said. Curry joined LeBron James as the only visiting players with a 50-point game and a triple-double at the current MSG, opened in 1968. Knicks Patrick Ewing, Bernard King and Carmelo Anthony also did it. "Ive had teammates that had big nights a year ago and right away theyre thinking, Im going to have another big night scoring the basketball," Golden State coach Mark Jackson said. "Thats not Steph Curry. Hes an unselfish basketball player and hes all about the team." The NBAs assists leader made five 3-pointers, as did backcourt mate Thompson. The 6-foot-3 All-Star also grabbed nine defensive rebounds in his fourth career triple-double and third this season, bouncing back from one of his worst performances of the season. He had a season low-tying five points on 2-of-10 shooting Wednesday in a 103-83 loss to Chicago. Golden State easily rebounded from that defeat to win for the fifth time in six games. Anthony had 23 points and 16 rebounds for the Knicks, blown out for the second straight night in a season thats starting to feel hopeless no matter what the sorry Eastern Conference standings say. They seem to know it, with an agitated Tyson Chandler thrown out in the fourth quarter after picking up two technical fouls, the first for shoving Warriors backup Marreese Speights. "Its not a mental thing, its a heart thing," Knicks forward J.R. Smith said. "You cant let people score 400, 50 points in the paint over and over again, then we aint going to win.dddddddddddd We aint going to win games like that." New York is six games behind eighth-place Atlanta. "I keep saying weve got to figure it out, figure it out, but its time where we should have it down pat by now," Anthony said. "We shouldnt be in this position. But weve got games to play." The Knicks lost by 26 at Miami on Thursday, but they were in that game in the second half. This one was over long before halftime, when fans booed them as they trudged off to the locker room. A couple of "Fire Woodson! Fire Woodson!" chants broke out at Madison Square Garden in an atmosphere that was completely different from the Warriors visit here on Feb. 27, 2013. Even Knicks fans cheered that night every time Curry pulled up in the second half. But the Knicks managed to win the game, pulling out a 109-105 victory after Raymond Felton blocked one of Currys late jumpers. This time, Felton got a mixed reception when he was introduced during starting lineups for his first home game since his arrest on felony weapons charges. And the Knicks (21-38) never had any chance of winning, losing for the eighth time in nine games. Golden State led 38-27 after one behind 12 points from Curry. Steve Blake opened the second with a 3-pointer and Jermaine ONeal followed with a basket to make it a 16-point lead, and after the Knicks cut it to 10, the Warriors put it away by closing the half with a 15-4 spurt to open a 73-52 bulge. Playing without Iman Shumpert (sprained left knee), Andrea Bargnani (left elbow) and Kenyon Martin (left ankle), the Knicks also were without Amare Stoudemire on the second night of the back-to-back, with coach Mike Woodson saying his knee was bothering him a little bit. NOTES: Curry is one behind Indianas Lance Stephenson for the NBA lead in triple-doubles. Russell Westbrook also had a triple-double by the end of three quarters against the Knicks on Christmas Day. ... The Knicks played some Jackson highlights during a first-half stoppage in tribute to the Warriors coach, a New York native, Knicks first-round pick and Rookie of the Year who spent his first six seasons with the franchise and later returned for a second stint.
