Gushue goes for the money

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

The Brad Gushue rink, with P.E.I. na­tive Brett Gal­lant at sec­ond, will bat­tle in the $100,000 Pinty’s all-star curl­ing skins game to­day through Sun­day in Banff, Alta. Gushue’s New­found­land and Labrador rink takes on twotime de­fend­ing Brier cham­pion Pat Simmons in one semi­fi­nal, while the other sees Olympic and de­fend­ing cham­pion Brad Ja­cobs tan­gle with Mike McEwen in a re­match of last year’s semi. On the women’s side, last year’s win­ner Rachel Homan and Val Sweet­ing play in one semi­fi­nal, while young gun Kelsey Rocque and Olympic gold-medal­list Jen­nifer Jones tus­sle in the other. Both fi­nals are Sun­day. TSN will broad­cast all games.
