KAMLOOPS, B.C. - For Kevin Koe and John Morris, the key now is to keep everybody else behind them.

“Oh, for sure,” said Koe after keeping Saskatchewan from jumping up and joining them in the evening draw of the Tim Hortons Brier here Tuesday.

“It’s our third Brier. We’ve never been in that 1-2 game. It would be nice to get there. We’re used to doing it the hard way in the 3-4 game. So if you can stay at the top, that’s what you want to do.”

For Koe and Morris it was the uneventful day you want to have at a Brier. Collect to wins. Stay at the top of the standings. And sneak the odd peek at the interesting developments on the other sheets as you go about your business.

The two Calgary-area based skips took relatively easy trips through their games here Tuesday to leave the Interior Saving Centre with 6-1 records while all sorts of stuff was going on around them.

It’s tough, at the Brier, not to look over at another sheet at somebody else’s train wreck. And here yesterday, the Manitoba team Stoughton skips looked like that train wreck.
