Team Steven Laycock punched their ticket to the Championship round at the Tim Hortons Brier with a big 10-3 win over Nunavut Tuesday night.
The Saskatoon rink, now 4-2, have rattled off four straight wins after dropping their first two.
Laycock says Tuesday night’s game was closer than it appeared.
“It’s a game you obviously you feel like if we play our game, we have a real good chance to win, but they made a lot of shots, we had to make a few testers there in the game for sure,” Laycock says. “It wasn’t until we got the steal of four that really broke open.”
Laycock says Wednesday afternoon’s game against John Epping is still a very important game going into the Championship round.
“You can’t just coast and say ‘we’re in the championship round,’ you take your losses with you, and realistically if we lose that game (Wednesday) we got to run the table and the whole other side of the pool.”
Laycock hopes to become the first Saskatchewan skip since 1980 to win the Tim Hortons Brier.
