RAMA, Ont. – The first end comes down to a measure, and a resulting carry-over.
The second end has less rocks in play than the first and looks more like a non-skins curling end. Glenn Howard's first shot doesn't curl as much as he anticipated, leaving him with a tough second shot – and results in a Stoughton steal.
The third end sees Howard with an open draw for two, which he makes to take his first skin.
The fourth end sees the runback king, Jeff Stoughton, make a raise double takeout to take the skin and lead $3,300-$1,200 at the fourth end break.
