While there will be thousands of dollars and hundreds of CTRS points on the line at this weekend’s Shorty Jenkins Classic, the most exciting part of the weekend for curling fans will be watching a guy who hasn’t played in a year fill in on a team that is not expected to win. No disrespect to Brantford’s Chad Allen (skipping in place of Wayne Tuck), but his foursome will have their work cut out in Cornwall, Ont., where the event will be hosted for the second year. In a field that includes the likes of Brad Gushue (St. John’s; currently ...

(2-6; Vernon-Kelowna). “You usually don’t win too many games when you give up two in the first end,” said a tired McEwen. “They made a great ...

OTTAWA – Former champion Kevin Koe of Alberta bounced back from a disappointing Tuesday with two wins Wednesday to put himself and his teammates in good position heading into their final day of round-robin play at the Tim Hortons Brier.
