The champ has fallen to a former champion. Kevin Koe of Calgary coolly delivered a double takeout to score three to finish off Winnipeg’s Mike McEwen 7-3 and capture the 2015 Home Hardware Canada Cup, presented by Meridian Manufacturing, men’s title in Grande Prairie, Alta., Sunday. Koe last won the event in 2008 while McEwen was looking to retain the title he won in Camrose, Alta., last year. But with Koe’s team of third Marc Kennedy, second Brent Laing and lead Ben Hebert curling 90 per cent as a team it was just too tough. “We were always in control, ...

Kevin Koe started strong in the Home Hardware Canada Cup, presented by Meridian Manufacturing, this week. Now his Calgary team is looking to finish strong by winning it all.

Revenge was sweet for Val Sweeting Saturday afternoon. The Edmonton skip responded from being dispatched to a tiebreaker by Winnipeg’s Jennifer Jones on Friday to book a spot in Sunday’s women’s final at the 2015 Home Hardware Canada Cup, presented by Meridian Manufacturing, in Grande Prairie, Alta. Sweeting defeated Jones 5-3 in Saturday afternoon’s semifinal before a pro-Sweeting crowd at Revolution Place.

Mike McEwen took care of his own business, and then he watched gratefully as Kevin Koe did him a favour on an adjacent sheet on Saturday morning at Revolution Place in Grande Prairie, Alta. The end result is that McEwen and his Winnipeg team — third B.J. Neufeld, second Matt Wozniak and lead Denni Neufeld — are one victory away from successfully defending their title at the 2015 Home Hardware Canada Cup, presented by Meridian Manufacturing. McEwen cruised to a 10-4 win over Saskatoon’s Steve Laycock (2-5) to close out round-robin play on Saturday morning to finish with a 5-2 ...

Rachel Homan finds herself just one win away from the promised land — a trip back to her hometown, to play for a berth in the 2018 Winter Olympics. Homan’s Ottawa team ground out a 7-5 win over Tracy Fleury of Sudbury, Ont., on Friday morning at Revolution Place in Grande Prairie, Alta.

Team Jones is back on track at the 2015 Home Hardware Canada Cup, presented by Meridian Manufacturing. After a miserable 0-2 opening day at Revolution Place in Grande Prairie, Alta., the reigning Canadian champs from Winnipeg — (Jones, third Kaitlyn Lawes, second Jill Officer, lead Dawn McEwen and coach Wendy Morgan) — earned what can only be described as a must-win in the compressed round-robin draw, beating Tracy Fleury’s team from Sudbury, Ont., 9-4 on Thursday morning. The win kept Team Jones’s hopes alive for a playoff berth, but the five-time Scotties Tournament of Hearts champion knows her team doesn’t ...

A come-from-behind win by Switzerland’s Silvana Tirinzoni stole the Grand Slam of Curling’s Tour Challenge championship, and the $21,000 pay day.
