Ramsay second at WCT event

Giving up a steal of three cost Brandonite Scott Ramsay and his Winnipeg-based team on Sunday.

The steal put Ramsay in a 4-2 hole after three ends in the World Curling Tour’s U.S. Open of Curling final in Blaine, Minn. Ramsay came back to tie the game 5-5 in the sixth end, before ultimately falling 7-5 to China’s Rui Liu and placing second in the 24-team event with a US$23,000 purse.

Ramsay ran the table, going 5-0, in his preliminary round pool to qualify for the playoffs. His team then stole three points to beat Ontario’s Jeff Curle 5-2 in the quarter-finals. Ramsay posted a three and a four to beat seven-time American champion Pete Fenson 8-2 in the semifinals.

Meanwhile, in Scotland, former Brandonite Mike McEwen won $2,386 for reaching Sunday’s semifinals at the WCT’s Mecure Perth Masters bonspiel. McEwen’s Winnipeg-based squad cruised through the A-event, winning four games, to reach the playoffs. The team then beat Switzerland’s Peter de Cruz 4-2 in the quarter-finals before falling 6-4 to Sweden’s Oskar Eriksson.
