Mattea Roach is climbing up the Jeopardy! all-time leaderboard with some impressive wins. How did things play out tonight?

Roach, a tutor from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, entered Friday night’s game on a 13-day winning streak. During that time, she has banked $286,081 and sits just outside the top 10 highest earners in regular play.

Trying to end that streak on Friday were Anna Meyer, a food technologist from Seattle, Washington, and Claire Dozier, a non-profit professional from Atlanta, Georgia.

Mattea Roach got back to doing what she does best in the “Jeopardy!” round, jumping out to an early lead. The first round of questions ended with Roach in the lead at $5,600. In second place was Claire Dozier with $0, followed by Anna Meyer at -$400.

“Double Jeopardy!” saw more of the same as Roach put the game out of reach. She answered 16 out of 17 answers correctly, banking $26,000. Dozier was in second with $2,800 and Meyer ranked third at $1,600.

Another anti-climatic “Final Jeopardy!” meant that Roach could just pad her stats. She was the only contestant to answer correctly, adding $8,000 to her total. With tonight’s win, Roach’s career winnings total $320,081.
