ST. CATHARINES, ONT. – It was a bounce-back day for Team P.E.I. at the 2017 Scotties Tournament of Hearts on Tuesday.

MacPhee, third stone Sarah Fullerton, second stone Meaghan Hughes, lead Michelle McQuaid and fifth player Rebecca Jean MacDonald stole seven points en route to a 9-4 win over Nova Scotia’s Mary Mattatall in the morning draw.
Team P.E.I., which curls out of the Charlottetown Curling Complex, then prevailed in a back-and-forth game against British Columbia’s Marla Mallett 8-7 on the final shot of the afternoon contest by MacPhee. Mallett dropped to 0-6 with the loss.
P.E.I., which entered Tuesday’s play having lost back-to-back 8-7 decisions to Team Canada’s Chelsea Carey and Quebec’s Eve Bélisle on the final shot of each game in its two previous games, will face two tough tests on Wednesday.
