Shantz in the big dance in Winnipeg

Three days into the 2012 Canadian Senior Women’s Curling Championships in Winnipeg and Penny Shantz’ debut looks to have hit a few speed-bumps.

Shantz and her rink got off to a great start, defeating defending champion Heidi Hanlen from New Brunswick. The locals lost 10-6 to Nova Scotia in their second game on Saturday, and on Sunday they lost 7-6 to PEI.

“That was ouch,” she told The News Monday afternoon — a few hours after they lost 7-6 to Saskatchewan.

“We had another good game and they had a good game,” she said. The 8th was a bad end (for us), but we had chances.”

The locals played again last night.
