SASK'S LAYCOCK 3-4 AT THE BRIER

In afternoon play Tuesday at the 2016 Tim Hortons Brier in Ottawa, Saskatchewan's Steve Laycock held off PEI's Adam Casey 8-5, Brad Gushue of Newfoundland and Labrador topped Alberta's Kevin Koe 4-3 and Team Canada's Pat Simmons doubled B.C.'s Jim Cotter 8-4.

Koe's brother Jamie and his Northwest Territories teammates recorded their first win with an 8-5 victory over Ontario's Glenn Howard.

In the evening, Manitoba's Mike McEwen beat Simmons 6-4, New Brunswick's Mike Kennedy edged Laycock 7-6 and Quebec's Jean-Michel Menard defeated Howard 9-5.

Jacobs led the standings at 6-0 after 10 draws and Gushue was in second place at 5-1. McEwen was alone in third place at 4-2.

Simmons and Kevin Koe were next at 4-3. They were followed by Menard at 3-3 and Howard and Laycock at 3-4.

Round-robin play continues through Friday and the medal games are scheduled for Sunday. The Brier champion will represent Canada at the world men's curling championship next month in Basel, Switzerland.

Ben Hebert is like a good sport after last nights loss to Northern Ontario. Wouldn't shake hands with Brad Jacobs. I could say a lot more. But I know he's one of your favourites Rod, so I guess I will be tight lipped. Thanks , James

You are totally wrong, he did shake hands with Jacobs it just looked like on tv that he walked by him but he shook his hand earlier and was missed on tv. Ben was also the one to say that they deserved to win the game. They were the better team

Sadly, Laycock is chocking on skip shots at exactly the wrong times.
Maybe next year.

Ben didn't help himself with all the trash talk before the Brier started.
