Bob Desjarlais (5-3) also scored late to secure a 5-4 win over Ben Gamble 3-5).  The two teams were tied at 2-2 after five ends, but Gamble score two in the sixth to move in front, but Desjarlais struck back with two in the seventh and one in the eighth.

The Ryan Wenarchuk rink stayed in a tie for first place at 7-1 on the year with a narrow 6-5 win over Donna Ackerman (3-5).
