Brown, B.C. turning focus to Nunavut after falling into early hole at Scotties

Team B.C. is off to a rough start at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Calgary.

The Corryn Brown-skipped Kamloops Curling Club rink dropped to 0-2 on Sunday at the women’s national curling championship after a 14-5 loss to Jennifer Jones and Manitoba (2-1).

"We definitely didn’t want to start with an 0-2 record, but that’s where we sit,” Brown told KTW. “Definitely a disappointing performance on my part. I know there are some things I need to improve on in that regard and just do all the little things right."

Brown said her team, which includes third Erin Pincott, second Dezaray Hawes and lead Sam Fisher, met with coach Allison MacInnes after the loss to Jones.

“We had a chance to talk about some of the good things that did come out of that [loss] and how to go forward,” Brown said.

"We're in a really good head space to, hopefully, pick up some wins going forward. We definitely have played well when our backs are against the wall."

Quebec knocked off B.C. 9-5 on Saturday in what was the Brown rink’s first competitive action since November.

“It could come down to the lack of reps, but everyone is in the same position, so we definitely can’t be using that as an excuse,” Brown said.

“We might not have nailed down what each other needs, with adding a new player [Fisher] and what not. We’ve had some really good conversations to, hopefully, figure some of that out and be bit more precise.”

Next up for Brown is a tilt against winless Nunavut (0-3) on Monday, a 12:30 p.m. start.

Brown sits tied for last in Pool B, which includes nine teams. The top four teams after round-robin action will advance to the Championship Pool.
