It may have been the last end in their fourth game in 26 hours, but Lorraine Arguin still had enough left in the tank to get the job done.

Lorraine Arguin.

Arguin stole a point in the 10th end to beat Cathy Cunningham from Newfoundland and Labrador 7-6 at the Canadian Senior Women's Curling championships in Yellowknife.

Arguin began the day by beating Ann McKellar-Gillis from the Northwest Territories 12-5. Arguin's rink played in four straight draws and won them all to lift her record to 6-1.

Arguin is joined by third DondaLee Deis, second Shelly Urquhart and lead Connie Fritzler on her provincial championship rink from the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre.

Arguin had a slim 4-2 lead over Cunningham as the tightly contested game entered the eighth end. Then Cunningham scored four to put Arguin in trouble. Instead the Moose Jaw rink tied the game by scoring a deuce with the hammer and then stole a point to win in the 10th end.

Their win in the morning draw was much more straight forward.

Arguin scored four in the sixth end to take a 7-4 lead and scored four more in the ninth end to finish the game off.

Wednesday will be a big day for Arguin. She will meet Ontario's Marilyn Bodogh a battle of teams who are tied for first place at 6-1. She will then play Alberta's Glenys Bakker who is also in the hunt for a playoff spot as she sits in fifth place with a 4-2 record.

Manitoba's Lois Fowler is in third place with a 5-1 record. Heidi Hanlon from New Brunswick is fourth at 5-2.
