Terry McNamee’s provincial champion Brandon-based team evened its record to 2-2 at the Canadian mixed curling championship on Monday in Mont-Royal, Quebec.

McNamee’s Brandon Curling Club foursome, with third Kerri Einarson, second Kyle Einarson and lead Stacey Fordyce, scored a deuce in the second end and never trailed on the way to a 6-4 triumph over Nova Scotia’s Brent MacDougall in Monday afternoon’s draw. Kerri Einarson led the way with an 85 per cent shooting percentage yesterday as Manitoba handed Nova Scotia its first loss in four games.

McNamee’s foursome plays twice today, taking on Alberta this afternoon and Prince Edward Island tonight.

Brandon’s Steve Irwin opened the Dominion Curling Club Championship — a national championship geared towards club level curlers — with a 5-2 victory over British Columbia’s Richard Brower Monday in Scarborough, Ont. Irwin’s big end was a three in the fifth and they led 5-0 going into the seventh.

Irwin’s team, with third Justin Rabe, second Travis Brooks and lead Cody Rabe representing the Brandon Curling Club, faces the Yukon’s Ray Mikkelsen this morning and Northern Ontario’s Russ Mellerup this afternoon.

Neepawa’s Jerry Chudley was eliminated in the quarter-finals by eventual champion Randy Bryden of Regina on Monday at the Dauphin Clinic Pharmacy Cashspiel.

Bryden brushed by Chudley 6-4, with Chudley — the last Westman team in the running — earning $2,500 for making the final eight. Bryden went on to beat Jared Kolomaya 8-3 in the semifinals and then swept aside Scott Bitz 5-3 in yesterday afternoon’s championship final, battling back from an early 3-1 deficit to take the first-place prize of $10,000 in the Manitoba Curling Tour/World Curling Tour event.
