The 2014 Pomeroy Inn & Suites Prairie Showdown has wrapped up at the Grande Prairie Curling Club.
It was the battle of Winnipeg in the men’s final, as Mike McEwen beat Jeff Stoughton in a game that came down to the last rock.
Meanwhile, Switzerland’s Silvana Tirinzoni bested Eve Muirhead of Scotland in a more lop-sided game.
“We are lucky actually that [Eve Muirhead] probably didn’t have her best game, so we expected it to be a little harder than it actually was,” admits Tirinzoni, “but I’m just really happy that we could win that game.”
Tirinzoni took an early lead, and Muirhead wasn’t able to catch up.
Grande Prairie’s Renee Sonnenberg made it to the quarterfinals, but fell to Heather Nedohin of Edmonton.
