Brown's career-best Scotties performance boosts B.C. to victory

TSN curling commentator Bryan Mudryk called her Clutch Corryn after a highlight reel shot on Tuesday at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Calgary.

Skip Corryn Brown’s incredible triple with her first stone in the 10th end paved the way for Team B.C.’s 7-5 victory over Wild Card No. 2, which is skipped by Chelsea Carey.

“That felt really great,” said Brown, who curled at a career-best 93 per cent in the Tuesday morning tilt. “I would agree it’s probably one of the most solid games I’ve played. I was pretty dialled in, so it was really great.

“I’m hoping we keep this momentum going.”

B.C.’s second straight victory at the women’s national curling championship pushed its record to 2-2 ahead of a Tuesday night clash with Newfoundland and Labrador (Sarah Hill), a 5:30 p.m. start.

The Kamloops Curling Club quartet, which includes Brown, third Erin Pincott, second Dezaray Hawes and lead Sam Fisher, needs a win to plunk itself right in the thick of things in Pool B, which does not feature any undefeated teams.

Scotties standings as of Tuesday afternoon.

Brown will give them a great chance at a third straight victory if she can keep the form she found on Tuesday morning.

The skip has improved with each contest, curling at 63 per cent in a 9-5 loss to Quebec on Saturday, 67 per cent in a 14-5 defeat to Manitoba on Sunday and 80 per cent in an 11-2 triumph over Nunavut on Monday.

"I've been throwing a bit more consistently, trusting how I’ve been throwing and what we've practised," Brown said. "It was nice to have some positive reinforcement in the Nunavut game and to bring that into this game here."

B.C. is slated to play once on Wednesday, a 12:30 p.m. start against New Brunswick (Melissa Adams).

"It's huge now," Brown said. "Our pool is very tight right now. We can't afford another loss."
