YORKTON, Sask. — The women's quarter-finals are set at the Canadian Open curling tournament.
Tracy Fleury, Chelsea Carey and Anna Sidorova all advanced to the quarters with victories in Draw 13 Friday night at the third major stop on the Grand Slam of Curling circuit.
Fleury, from Sudbury, Ont., downed Edmonton's Kelsey Roque 4-3 after scoring a single in the final end and will now play Winnipeg's Jennifer Jones.
Carey and her Calgary foursome toppled Sweden's Margaretha Sigfridsson 6-2 and will face Switzerland's Alina Paetz while Russia's Sidorova will meet Ottawa's Rachel Homan after beating Switzerland's Silvana Tirinzoni 6-1.
Edmonton's Val Sweeting squares off against Scotland's Eve Muirhead in the fourth women's quarter-finals matchup.
On the men's side, Scotland's David Murdoch defeated Edmonton's Brendan Bottcher 6-5 with a deuce in the eighth end, and Calgary's Kevin Koe downed Brad Jacobs of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., 5-3 in the other evening draw.
The men will have one more draw Saturday morning and must wait for the remainder of the field to finish the triple-knockout tournament format before knowing which rinks will play in the quarters.
Both the women's and men's quarter-finals begin Saturday afternoon.
