Cotter falls to Koe

A week that started with a ton of promise ended in a downward spiral for Vernon’s Jim Cotter Friday in Saskatoon.

The Team B.C. skip finished the Tim Hortons Brier with his fifth straight loss that afternoon, bowing 8-3 to Yukon/Northwest Territories’ Jamie Koe.

Cotter, who curls with third Kevin Folk, second Ty Griffith and lead Rick Sawatsky, equalled his 4-7 record from last year’s Brier in London, Ont.

Ontario’s Glenn Howard finished atop the round-robin standings at 10-1 after he doubled Alberta’s Kevin Koe 6-3 Thursday afternoon.

Howard iced Manitoba’s Rob Fowler (8-3) 9-3 in Friday night’s Page 1-2 playoff to advance to today’s championship game where he will face the winner of Saturday’s Page 3-4 all-brother showdown between Jamie Koe and Kevin Koe.

Meanwhile, Cotter’s Woodland Equipment rink will battle Brad Kuhn’s Nufloors for the Baron Insurance Super League championship Wednesday (8:30 p.m.) at the Vernon Curling Club.
