Schut won their opener 8-2 over Emily Sanderson from the host club, and then tripled the Jordan Dunphy-Condon foursome from the Fox 9-3 in draw two. MacLean stole three in the fifth end in a 7-2 win over Samuel Shaw from Montague, and shaded Cornwall clubmate Hayden Ford by a 4-3 score in draw two. Katie Shaw won her only game of the day by a 9-2 score over Ford.

The Cruz Pineau team from the Silver Fox, playing with three players, made an impressive debut in draw two, pulling out a 5-2 win over the Alexis Burris rink from Crapaud. Burris won her opener 8-2 over Dunphy-Condon and sits at 1-1 (win-loss).

The women’s A section winner was Kaleigh Mackay and her Crapaud, Montague, and Charlottetown combined team. They were trailing Lauren Moerike of Charlottetown 3-2 after six ends, but scored a deuce in seven and stole a single in eight for the win.

The men’s B final, set for 2 pm Sunday, will see the winner of a 10 am Saturday game between DeWolfe and Summerside’s Alex MacFadyen take on Noye. MacFadyen lost his opener 6-5 to Noye, but won his second game 7-3 over Cornwall’s Devin Schut, who lost his opener 8-2 to DeWolfe.

N.S. curler speaks out against new rules that kept his province out of the Brier (CTV Atlantic)

A member of Team Nova Scotia is speaking out against a new process that saw his province without representation at the Canadian Men’s Curling Championship.

From a very early age, Colten Steele dreamed of representing Nova Scotia in the Brier.

He earned the right to wear the jersey for the first time this year, but because of new regulations implemented by Curling Canada, his experience was cut short.

“It didn’t feel like we lost a game of curling, it felt like we went out there and lost a coin flip,” says Steele.

With the addition of the new teams, Curling Canada created a pre-qualification tournament, a round-robin of the lowest performing teams to compete for the 12th and final entry into the Brier.

Nova Scotia competed against Team P.E.I. and Team Yukon for the final spot, all teams tied and Nova Scotia lost in a draw to the button.

“Being eliminated by two centimetres, might open people’s eyes to the fact that this isn’t a fair way to do it and it’s not helping grow the sport in Canada,” says Steele.

Team Nova Scotia was sent home shortly after they failed to qualify.

“We were treated like we weren’t part of the event,” says Steele. “You’re out there in Calgary, where you hoped you’d have an amazing experience for your first time at the Brier, but instead, we have to come to terms with the fact we had 48 hours to do as much as we could with what we had left of the Brier.”

The president of the Nova Scotia Curling Association, Chris Manuge, says plans are in the works locally to remove the new regulation. He says the group is working on proposals for alternative solutions, which they plan to deliver to Curling Canada at the end of the month.

Saskatchewan nails down final playoff berth at Tim Hortons Brier

Steve Laycock of Saskatchewan defeated Jim Cotter of B.C. 4-2 Friday morning to claim the final playoff spot at the Tim Hortons Brier, presented by SecurTek Monitoring Solutions.

The win by Laycock and his Saskatoon team of third Kirk Muyres, second Colton Flasch, lead Dallan Muyres, alternate Gerry Adam and coach Lyle Muyres, improved their record to 7-4, eliminated the chance for tiebreakers and dashed the hopes of Alberta, B.C., and Quebec, who would have been in the tiebreakers if B.C. had won.

“They definitely pushed us all the way,” Laycock said of Cotter’s Vernon team of third Ryan Kuhn, second Tyrel Griffith, lead Rick Sawatsky, alternate Grant Olsen and coach Pat Ryan. “If I hadn’t played my A game we wouldn’t have had a hope. We played hard all week to get ourselves in that position and not have to worry about other sheets.”

In the other final draw games, Kevin Koe of Alberta (Calgary) beat Jeremy Mallais of New Brunswick (Saint John) 8-3, Mark Kean of Ontario (Fenelon Falls) beat Jamie Koe of Northwest Territories (Yellowknife) 8-4 and Adam Casey of Prince Edward Island (Charlottetown) beat Reid Carruthers of Manitoba (Winnipeg) 5-2.

The final standings have Northern Ontario 10-1, Newfoundland-Labrador 9-2, Saskatchewan and Team Canada 7-4, Alberta and Quebec 6-5, B.C., Ontario and P.E.I. 5-6, Manitoba 4-7, New Brunswick 2-9 and Northwest Territories 0-11.

Northern Ontario will play Newfoundland-Labrador in the Page 1-2 game at 9:30 this evening, with the winner advancing to Sunday’s 8 p.m. final. The loser drops to Saturday’s 9 p.m. semifinal against the winner of Saturday’s 4 p.m. Page 3-4 game between Saskatchewan and Team Canada (all times Atlantic)

The key end for Saskatchewan and B.C. came in the fifth when the teams had 11 rocks in a jagged line from the front of the house to the back. B.C. was counting two until Laycock drew the edge of the button as second shot. Cotter’s draw attempt just rubbed a stone in the eight-foot and Laycock then used a gentle double tap back to move himself to shot.

Cotter’s final rock draw attempt came up light, letting Laycock steal the pivotal single for a 2-0 lead.

“Both teams were just kind of jockeying for position on the left-hand side of the sheet,” explained Laycock, who finished 6-5 last year and just missed the playoffs. “Jim bounced off on his and we made a nice little tap-up to get shot rock. He was playing a draw on the swingy side and I think both teams kind of made a lot of shots from there later in the game but that time neither team really knew how swingy it was and he crashed on the top eight one.”

 

“We just slivered the top one,” Cotter said of his first shot. “If we get that one in there, we’re sitting two and in great shape. That’s just the way it goes. We had to come back, get a deuce and we just weren’t able to manufacture that.”

They tried in the 10th but in the end left Laycock the runback take-out, the type of shot he and his teammates had executed nearly perfectly a number times in the game.

“I wasn’t expecting it would be an easy one because early in the end they had the corner they were using and later they had our two rocks, which were pretty advantageous to them,” Laycock said. “I knew it would have to be either one where I blast off a freeze or make the runback. So we had options, I just had to execute a good shot.”

To the dismay of three other teams he made the shot.

TSN/RDS2, the official broadcast partner of Curling Canada’s Season of Champions, will provide complete coverage of the Tim Hortons Brier, leading to the gold-medal game on March 8 at 8 p.m.

The winner of the 2015 Tim Hortons Brier will represent Canada at the Ford World Men’s Championship, March 28-April 5 in Halifax, in addition to qualifying for the 2015 Home Hardware Canada Cup in Grande Prairie, Alta., the 2016 World Financial Group Continental Cup in Las Vegas and the 2016 Tim Hortons Brier in Ottawa

Second stone Anson Carmody releases a shot while lead Robbie Doherty and third stone Josh Barry handle the sweeping. The action took place during the final game of the P.E.I. Tankard provincial men’s curling championship.

The P.E.I. rink out of the Silver Fox Curling and Yacht Club in Summerside and the Charlottetown Curling Complex won both its games at the 2015 Tim Hortons Brier.

Casey, third stone Josh Barry, second stone Anson Carmody, lead Robbie Doherty, fifth player Robert Campbell and coach Lincoln Peters started the day off with an 8-4 victory over New Brunswick’s Jeremy Mallais in the morning draw, and then outlasted Jamie Koe of the Northwest Territories 9-5 in afternoon action.

Wednesday Brier wrapup, including Gushue’s “best ever” shot (Curling Canada, CurlingZone video)

(Curling Canada) In Brier action Wednesday night, Kevin Koe and his Alberta (Calgary) foursome took a 7-4 win over his brother Jamie that kept alive their playoff hopes.

Steve Laycock of Saskatchewan (Saskatoon) scored one in the 11th to get by Adam Casey of Prince Edward Island (Charlottetown) 7-6, Jeremy Mallais of New Brunswick (Saint John) stole three in the sixth to beat Mark Kean of Ontario (Fenelon Falls) 9-4 and Reid Carruthers of Manitoba (Winnipeg) made a great takeout through a very tight port to score three in the eighth and beat Jim Cotter of B.C.(Vernon) 8-3.

The results leave Northern Ontario at 9-0 (clinched a berth in the Page 1-2 playoff game), Newfoundland-Labrador at 7-2, Quebec and Team Canada at 6-3, Saskatchewan at 5-3, Manitoba and Alberta at 4-4, B.C. at 3-5, Ontario, P.E.I. and New Brunswick at 2-6 and Northwest Territories 0-8.

Earlier on Wednesday, Brad Gushue nearly jumped out of his shoes after a spectacular final shot he called his best ever gave his Newfoundland-Labrador team a heart-stopping 8-7 victory over Alberta.

But what was the shot?

“I guess it was a double raise, double, around the horn backwards, something or other,” he laughed. “It was crazy. That’s the only shot we thought was there. I envisioned it the way it happened. It’s just the percentage of actually making it happen are so small, because not even a millimetre on the top rock and we miss it.”

The shot was a huge emotional lift for Gushue and teammates third Mark Nichols, second Brett Gallant, lead Geoff Walker and coach Ken Bagnell. It was an arrow through the heart of Kevin Koe and his Alberta team of third Marc Kennedy, second Brent Laing, lead Ben Hebert, alternate Jamie King and coach John Dunn.

“A tough one.” Koe said of the loss. “I didn’t think (the shot) was there. I thought we had it in the bag honestly. I don’t know how many times out of a 100 he makes that but unfortunately for us he did and that’s just kind of the way it’s been going, wrong side of the inch.”

Two three-enders key Gushue’s win over Casey (Journal)

(by Jason Simmonds)

CALGARY – Back-to-back three-enders by the Brad Gushue rink proved to be the difference against P.E.I.’s Adam Casey on Wednesday morning.

Gushue went on to win 9-6 and hand his former teammate his fourth straight loss in the round-robin portion of the 2015 Tim Hortons Brier.

Casey, third stone Josh Barry, second stone Anson Carmody, lead Robbie Doherty, fifth player Robert Campbell and coach Lincoln Peters are now 2-5 (won-lost), and will look to get back on the winning track in Wednesday night’s late draw against Saskatchewan’s Steve Laycock (4-2). The Gushue rink, which includes second stone Brett Gallant from Charlottetown, improved to 6-2 in the Canadian men’s curling championship.

Thursday, the P.E.I. rink, which curls out of the Silver Fox Curling and Yacht Club in Summerside and the Charlottetown Curling Complex, takes on New Brunswick’s Jeremy  Mallais (1-6) in the morning draw and the Northwest Territories’ Jamie Koe (0-7) in the afternoon. Team Casey then concludes the round robin against Manitoba’s Reid Carruthers (3-3) on Friday morning.

Two six-enders (Stick equiv. of 8 ender) scored in 55+ Games Stick Curling

Two six-enders were scored in Stick Curling at the Vogue Optical 55+ games held in Charlottetown last week. Since there are only six rocks thrown per team per end in 2 person Stick Curling, a Six-Ender is the equivalent of an Eight-Ender in regular curling. The Six-Enders were scored by Gloria Clarke and Ruth Stavert, and by Alva Clarey and Bryan Sutherland. Both duos are from the Cornwall Curling Club, who swept all the medals in Stick Curling at the Games.

Rough day at Brier on Tues. for Casey rink, who play Gushue this morning (Journal)

CALGARY – It was a day to forget for the Adam Casey rink.

Summerside native Anson Carmody is the second stone with P.E.I.’s Adam Casey rink at the 2015 Tim Hortons Brier in Calgary.

The P.E.I. representatives at the 2015 Tim Hortons Brier dropped two games on Tuesday to a pair of the pre-tournament favourites. Alberta’s Kevin Koe doubled Casey 8-4 in the morning draw, and defending Olympic gold-medallist Brad Jacobs of Northern Ontario stole nine points in an 11-1 victory in the afternoon. Jacobs is the only undefeated team at 6-0 (won-lost).

Casey, third stone Josh Barry, second stone Anson Carmody, lead Robbie Doherty, fifth player Robert Campbell and coach Lincoln Peters now sport a record of 2-4 (won-lost) at the Canadian men’s curling championship.

They will take on Newfoundland and Labrador’s Brad Gushue on Wednesday morning (11:30 Atlantic), and Saskatchewan’s Steve Laycock in the evening draw (9:30 Atlantic). Both Gushue (5-2) and Laycock (4-2) played in Tuesday’s late draw, with Gushue winning 8-6 over Ontario, and Laycock losing 7-5 to Quebec.

Jacobs is the only undefeated team remaining at 7-0. Koe (3-3) lost a much-anticipated showdown with Team Canada (4-3) on Tuesday night by a 6-3 score. [Tues. late draw scores/standings added]
