Nova Scotia teams skipped by Cally Moore and Ryan Abraham are looking good for the second round at the inaugural Canadian under-18 curling championships in Moncton.
Both teams have 3-1 records with one game left in the preliminary round. Six men's and women's teams move on to the chase for the championship, with the rest joining a mixed doubles competition.
The CFB Halifax team of Moore, Cassidy Currie, Alexis Chiasson and Cate Fitzgerald won twice Wednesday, defeating the Northwest Territories 10-2 and Prince Edward Island 6-4.
Nova Scotia plays British Columbia to cap the first round Thursday afternoon.
Mayflower's Abraham and teammates Mitchell Cortello, Jake Flemming and Thomas Mosher defeated Manitoba 6-2 for a 3-0 start, but lost 8-5 to Newfoundland and Labrador later in the day. They have a date with Saskatchewan in the Thursday afternoon draw.
Teams will play down to the final four for semifinals and finals on Saturday.
