Matt Dunstone rink wins Grand Slam of Curling’s Masters

Matt Dunstone and his Regina-based curling team have won their first Grand Slam of Curling title.

On Sunday in North Bay, Ontario, the Dunstone rink, consisting of third Braeden Moskowy, second Catlin Schneider and lead Dustin Kidby, defeated Brad Gushue 8-5 to take home first place money of $35,000, 12 Pinty’s Cup points and a spot in the season-ending Champions Cup.

Speaking after, Dunstone says it is nice to have his name on the same list as other great rinks in Canada.

“You grow up watching Kevin Martin, Glenn (Howard), (Mike) McEwen, Stoughty (Jeff Stoughton) , (Wayne) Middaugh, all those guys just dominate these things and just to play in them let alone do this and be a part of those guys in history, no words,” Dunstone said.

The shot of the game came in the fifth end with Dunstone was successful on  an angle raise takeout to score two and build a 6-3 lead

The Dunstone rink is the first Saskatchewan rink since Glen Despins to win an event on the Slam circuit.

The Masters was the first of six  Grand Slam of Curling events on the 2019-20 schedule.
