Safeway Championship Robertson faces early exit


Several locals, headlined by former National Seniors Men's Champion Kelly Robertson, were in action this past week in Winnipeg at the 2014 Safeway Championship.

Robertson opened his tournament with a convincing 10-4 win over Virden's Graham Freeman, but followed that with a tough match-up against Fort Rouge's Mike McEwen where Robertson fell to a 10-4 defeat and was sent to the B-Side Bracket.

There, Robertson fell to Riverton's Justin Richter 8-7 to be eliminated from the Championship.

Gladstone's Geoff Trimble was also at the Championship but was knocked out after hist first two games, losing 7-4 to Brandon's Rob Fowler in his opening match and following that with a 7-4 loss to Jared Kolomaya from Stonewall.

Another local, Minnedosa's Glenn Parrott, saw a familiar fate. The skip was given an unenviable opening round match-up against McEwen and lost 10-2. Parrott followed that with an 11-4 loss to Virden's Freeman to be eliminated from the weekend.

From a bit further down Highway 5, Carberry's William Kuran managed to extend his Safeway Championship experience to three games.

The Carberry rink topped Trevor Loreth 9-6 in their opening match before losing 6-3 to William Lyburn and Deer Lodge's Sean Grassie 7-3 on the B-Side.
