Chaos in Kelowna

That's what we're predicting Saturday when the B.C. team skipped by Kelly Scott (photo) goes for golden dreams in the women's final of the Canadian Olympic Trials. The Kelowna Curling Club should be rockin'!

The round-robin champs (8-1) are through and Calgary's Shannon Kleibrink (6-3) is also through, but not quite as far – she's in Friday afternoon's semifinal. Two other 6-3 squads will meet tomorrow morning – yes, on TSN! – in a tiebreaker for the right to battle Kleibrink: Sherry Middaugh of Coldwater, Ont. and Stefanie Lawton of Saskatoon.

Will fellow Kelownan Pat Ryan – the Hall of Fame skipper who has one foot in the door of retirement – win and get lucky in tonight's final men's draw, and squeeze into the playoffs? Stay tuned...
