It will be an historic playoffs at the Tim Horton’s Brier in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan starting today. For the first time ever, Yukon/Northwest Territories will be part of the final four. There is another unique storyline here because the 3/4 game will be a battle of brothers. Jamie Koe of Yukon/Northwest Territories will take on his brother, the formidable Kevin Koe of Calgary, the 2010 World Champion. The game can be seen at 12:30pm on TSN.
The winner of the 3-4 game will play Manitoba’s Rob Fowler this evening at 6pm (TSN) in the semi-final with the winner of the semi-final playing Ontario’s Glenn Howard in tomorrow night’s final also at 6pm (TSN). Howard gave Fowler a 9-3 spanking last night in the 1-2 game, a game completely dominated by the veteran skip from Midland.
