ST. ALBERT — North America completed their dominant performance at the Financial Group Continental Cup on Sunday, winning a pair of skins games and defeating the World team 298-102 — the most lopsided margin in tournament history. Calgary’s Cheryl Bernard defeated China’s Bingyu Wang 42-13 in the women’s skins game, while Olympic champion Kevin Martin of Edmonton beat Norway’s Thomas Ulsrud 39-16, taking a 35-point skin in the seventh end. That set a new points record for North America, which had already clinched a tournament win after Saturday’s competition. The previous record was 290 points, which North America set at the 2007 event in Medicine Hat. The North American team received $52,000 for the win, while the World team earned $26,000.
