Nova Scotia, as leaders after round robin play, opened with hammer and took a single in the first. Manitoba had a draw for 2 in the second but came up light and had to settle for 1.
In the 3rd Nova Scotia attempts a tick to prevent a steal but just misses and then blanks the 4th to go into the break down 2-1.
In the 5th Nova Scotia make a hit to score 2 and have a lucky escape when Manitoba's draw for a third point in the 6th end hits a guard. Their luck doesn't hold as they give up a steal of 2 in the 7th and are then run out of stones as Manitoba win 6-3.
