Team Brad Jacobs hit the ice at 10 p.m. Sault time on Friday for its final round-robin game at the Champions Cup, a six-day, Grand Slam of Curling event in Calgary.
With a record of 1-2, the Jacobs rink, which also includes third Ryan Fry, second E.J. Harnden and lead Ryan Harnden, was in a scoreless tie in the opening end with Tyler Tardi of Langley, B.C., when The Sault Star reached its Friday deadline.
A victory, and a 2-2 record, might have been enough for the Sault team to gain one of eight men’s quarter-finals spots in the 15-team field.
A 2-2 record could also see the Jacobs team forced to qualify through a tiebreaker.
Tiebreakers are set for Saturday at 10:30 a.m. Sault time.
Of course a loss would’ve eliminated Jacobs with a record of 1-3.
Fifteen women’s teams are also entered in what is the final event of the 2017-2018 season.
Men’s quarters are at 6 p.m. on Saturday, preceded by the women’s quarter-finals at 2 p.m.
Semifinals in both divisions are set for Saturday at 10 p.m.
The men’s final goes Sunday at 4 p.m., with the women battling for their championship at 12 noon.
