KAMLOOPS, B.C. – A recently relocated oil patch surface landman from Calgary versus an alleged new B.C. fishing guide who actually still shows up to work as a fireman most non-curling days in the Calgary suburb of Chestermere.Follow @SlamSports
That's your 85th Brier final.
Kevin Koe and his Albertans made it more of a high wire act than it had to be in Saturday night's semi-final to defeat Jean-Michel Menard's Quebec team 9-8 in an extra end to make the match with John Morris B.C. bunch.
Koe has now made it to the final in all three Briers in which he's represented Alberta.
“Third Brier. Third final. That's pretty cool. But now the thing is to have a winning record when all is said and done Sunday.”
The first to come out of the 3-4 game and win it curling out of Edmonton' Saville Centre in 2010, Koe was back two years later to take the same route only to lose the final 7-6 to Glenn Howard of Ontario.
