The first turning point of the game happened in the third end when Geall missed on his final attempt, allowing Cotter to steal one for a 2-0 lead.However, had Geall made that attempt, the rink would have scored four.“I think a quarter inch less curl and we would have scored four,” Geall lamented.“It was one of those situation in the game where we just came out on the wrong end of it.”The second turning point occurred in the eighth end when Geall again had the opportunity to steal a point after closing the gap to 4-3 with a deuce in the seventh.This time, however, Geall’s final stone was a bit heavy allowing Cotter to pull off the double takeout to score three and grab a 7-3 lead.“They had us in trouble there in the third end and if Sean makes that it could have been a different game . . . and he wasn’t far off,” Griffith explained.“He was only maybe an inch away from making that shot. But fortunately we got a couple of breaks — his rock came a little heavy in eight, and left Jimmy a great opportunity to score three.”Cotter & Company now have a few weeks off to prepare for Ottawa March 5-13.Griffith said the rink will return to a bit of normalcy, work and family life, but will be back on the rink training to represent BC in at the Tim Horton’s Brier.Which Geall believes the rink will do just fine.“They’re a classy bunch,” said Geall, who was at the Brier representing BC in 2009.“They’re a heck of a good team . . . they do a lot of things right and they’ll compete hard in a couple of weeks.”EXTRA END: Of course in any major event there are a few hiccups along with way.

They are phenomenal guys who made a ton of shots, more shots than I made.”“It hasn’t really sunk in yet,” said second Tyrell Griffith.“We’ve been going through the process all week, but this feels phenomenal. Anytime you can win this event to go to represent your province is just amazing. And when that last rock hits that’s when you mind can kind of come off the game.”Sunday was the second time in as many days that Cotter had knocked off Geall, who advanced to the final by stopping Dean Joanisse of New Westminster 4-2 in the semi final earlier in the day.The Geall rink includes third Andrew Bilesky, Steve Kopf and lead Mark Olsen.Saturday, the score was 5-1 in favour of the Okanagan rink in the Page Playoff 1-2 contest after Cotter won the A event and Geall the B event.Sunday, Geall gave the defending champion all he could handle, coming within a few key shots of pulling off the upset.

Hockey Canada recently announced that during its Winter Congress this weekend in Montreal, the Hockey Canada membership approved a regulation change proposed by the board of directors to revise the naming of the age divisions used in minor hockey across Canada. Following the recommendations of a task team, the age divisions will become U7, U9, U11 through to U21, impacting all minor and female hockey programs under the Hockey Canada umbrella.The change was initiated by Hockey Canada and its 13 provincial and territorial members and will be implemented nationally with their input and support for the 2020-21 season.“We believe everyone should feel welcome in the game and in our on-going effort to make hockey more inclusive, the Members at the Hockey Canada Annual Meeting determined that the names of our age Divisions will change,” said Michael Brind’Amour, chair of the Hockey Canada Board of Directors on the HC website.“Following a comprehensive review, we believe this change will simplify the system for families who may be new to the game. The new age Division names will be implemented for next season.”

he 2018 European Rowing Championships began today (Thursday) for Irish crews in Glasgow. Heats were scheduled for the morning and afternoon, followed by repechages which allow crews a second chance to qualify for the A/B semi-finals or straight to finals. First to race were Mark O’ Donovan and Shane O’ Driscoll in the men’s pairs, where a fourth place finish behind Belarus, Great Britain and the Netherland meant a repechage was required later in the afternoon, as just the top two crews qualified directly from the heat. In the repechage however, the Irish pair took second place and now progress to the A/B semi-finals tomorrow. The lightweight women’s double sculls raced in the early afternoon, and Denise Walsh and Aoife Casey also produced a fourth place result for Ireland meaning they too faced the repechages. This was an even tougher ask of the Irish crew as only the winner of this heat would go through to the semi-finals. Their repechage is scheduled for 10.00am tomorrow morning, where it will be necessary to place first or second in order to progress to the A Final. All remaining boats will contest the B Final, no semi-finals are scheduled for this event.Finally today the Irish lightweight men’s double sculls contingent consisting of brothers Gary and Paul O’ Donovan won their heat this afternoon, overcoming crews from France, Ukraine, Czech Republic and Switzerland and qualifying for the A/B semi-finals of the event. Just the top two boats qualified directly and they await the semi-finals on Saturday morning.
