Our hats go off to Alberta’s Kevin Koe who had a fantastic season this year capturing the Tim Horton’s Brier and going on to take the Ford World Championships a few weeks later.
Koe certainly took advantage of his opportunities this year. First off, not having to face nemesis Kevin Martin in the Alberta playdowns, he knocked off Randy Ferbey’s team to secure the Brier berth for Alberta. He and his team then played progressively better and better as the Brier week went along, culminating in a sweet extra-ends victory over Glenn Howard in the final. The cold draw that Koe made in the final end (see video below) was clutch, that’s all I can say. Congrats.
