British Columbia skip John Morris signals a five-ender to the scorer in the third end as they play at the Tim Hortons Brier in Kamloops, B.C. on Thursday.


Manitoba's Jeff Stoughton and B.C.'s John Morris won their final round-robin games Thursday night to finish the Canadian men's curling championship at 9-2.

A final Alberta win Friday would guarantee Kevin Koe a No. 1 finish at 10-1 leaving Manitoba second and B.C. third.

B.C. downed Saskatchewan 6-3 and Manitoba came from behind to beat Ontario 8-6 at the Tim Hortons Brier.
