Northwest Territories settles for ninth after 6-3 win over Quebec at Brier

REGINA — It won’t be much consolation, but Jamie Koe’s Northwest Territories foursome is the best of the non-playoff teams at the Canadian men’s curling championship.

Koe’s Yellowknife squad beat Quebec 6-3 on Friday in the placement draw at the 2018 Tim Hortons Brier.

Both teams finished fifth in their respective pools at 3-4 and were left out when the top eight teams advanced to the championship pool.

Koe finished the Brier in ninth place, while Quebec’s Mike Fournier was 10th.

In other results, New Brunswick beat British Columbia 12-5 in the 11th-place game. James Grattan’s rink had a huge sixth end, scoring a walloping seven points.

Prince Edward Island beat the rookie team from Newfoundland and Labrador 12-3, and Yukon scored one in the 10th end to edge winless Nunavut 7-6.

Championship pool play ended Friday with two more draws. There was one playoff place still up for grabs. Ontario, Northern Ontario and Team Canada locked up the others.
