Koe beats Stoughton to set up four-way tie at Brier Add to ...

Alberta’s Kevin Koe set up a three-way tie for first at the Canadian men’s curling championship Monday night with a 10-4 win in eight ends over previously unbeaten Jeff Stoughton from Manitoba.

John Morris of B.C. then beat Eddie MacKenzie of Prince Edward Island 10-4, leaving Morris, Koe and Stoughton all tied at 4-1 at the Tim Hortons Brier in Kamloops, B.C.

Newfoundland and Labrador’s Brad Gushue improved to 2-3 with a 9-7 win over James Grattan of New Brunswick, who won his first game in the earlier draw.

Northern Ontario improved to 2-3 by beating still winless Jamie Murphy of Nova Scotia 9-6.

Koe grabbed a three in the third end and stole a crippling four in eight when Stoughton was forced to try a low percentage angle raise into a crowded four-foot and his stone sailed past.

Stoughton shook hands at that point.
