KILLARNEY — As Draw 5 at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts reaches the midway mark, there's one lasting truth.
If you score nine points, with seven of them stolen, you should win
Barb Spencer did that with a 9-2 win over Tanis Fortin as she tries to make her case for a fourth Manitoba championship.
It's obvious, if it wasn't before, that Spencer wants to wash the sting of a 2-9 Canadian championship performance last season. That could be the driving factor behind her dominating performace so far: 10-4 win over Terry Ursel, 10-4 over Liza Park, 9-2 over Tanis Fortin Thursday morning.
