Kevin Koe doubles up BC to win Brier

Kevin Koe denied Kamloops native son Jim Cotter the big prize Sunday, as Alberta scored three three-enders to beat B.C. 10-5 at the Canadian men's curling championship.

B.C. beat Alberta in the 1-2 game to move straight to the final and opened well with a deuce in the first end, setting the sellout home-town crowd of fourth stone Cotter on loud at the Tim Hortons Brier.

But the Calgary foursome responded with a three in the second end after B.C. skip John Morris was heavy and rolled through.

Cotter did the same thing in four when he flashed on a freeze attempt, had to draw for one and accomplished that only by a slim margin.

In five, with rocks scattered around the 12, Cotter lost his shooter, letting Koe gently tap a B.C. rock back to score another three.

A final three in the sixth end made it 9-4 and handshakes would have followed in eight, except for the needs of the TV broadcaster.
