In the 4th end, Jacobs was down 5-2 and attempting to steal. They sat 2 in the four foot, until B.J. Neufeld's 1st rock in the end, a spectacular double-raise triple takeout to sit one and turn the end around. Right after that, he comes back with a soft back 8 weight tap and roll to sit 2.

Nedohin Reaches Semis
Team Heather Nedohin played a strong round robin at the Canada Cup finishing with a 4-2 record, good enough for 2nd place and a semi final berth against fellow AB team Val Sweeting. In a hard fought battle and back and forth game, missed a chance for a deuce in the 7th end settling for 1 and a 4-3 lead. Sweeting then took 2 and stole another in the 9th end to take a 6-4 lead. Nedohin played a strong 10th end to score 2 sending the game to an extra end. Nedohin played a raise on her last rock but narrowly missed giving Sweeting the win.
Team Allison Flaxey playing their first Canada Cup had a rough week finishing with a 1-5 record, but saw the team lose 2 tough games including an extra end loss to Olympic champions Jennifer Jones. They could have easily finished with 3-3 record and we look to more successes from this team in the future.
