Chelsea Carey took two for the win in the 10th end to slip past Shannon Kleibrink 5-4 in the B qualifier of the Jiffy Lube Alberta Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Calgary on Friday.

Carey and her Calgary-based team will now face double defending provincial champion Val Sweeting of Edmonton in the page A vs. B playoffs with the winner of that game receiving a spot in Sunday’s final.

Sweeting defeated Carey in the A-side final 8-3 to advance Thursday night.

Kleibrink, the 2006 Olympic bronze medallist from Coaldale, still has a chance to move on to the playoffs and faces Nadine Chyz in one of two C qualifiers of the triple knockout tournament.

Chyz’s Calgary/Red Deer team beat Edmonton’s Deanne Nichol in a 10-3 rout.
