On day three of the 2021 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Calgary, the biggest talk of the tournament was simply “the comeback.” Heading into the ninth end on Sunday afternoon, Quebec was trailing Prince Edward Island 6-2. However, the Quebec team skipped by Laurie St-Georges of Laval, Quebec scored four points in the ninth end to tie the contest at six points apiece, and then stole two points in the final end to win by two. With the win, Quebec improved to 2-1.

Ironically, the loss for Prince Edward Island on Sunday came a day after they delivered a huge comeback win themselves against Saskatchewan. In their game against Sherry Anderson, Prince Edward Island came back from a 5-1 deficit to win 7-6.

There are four teams at the moment undefeated. In Pool A, the definitive favourites of Rachel Homan of Ontario, and Kerri Einarson of Team Canada are each at three wins and zero losses. Meanwhile, in Pool B, Chelsea Carey’s Wildcard team, along with Newfoundland’s Sarah Hill are at two wins and zero losses.

The most intriguing game on the ice on Sunday came between Alberta and Ontario. In a game that saw either province score a single point between the first and ninth ends, Ontario’s Rachel Homan picked up a deuce in the 10th end to win by a single point.
