Carson and Skylar Ackerman both finished Day 2 of the 2018 Saskatchewan Junior Men’s and Women’s Curling Championship on a winning note on Thursday night.

Carson Ackerman beat fellow Moose Javian Brett Behm, 9-3, which puts both rinks’ records at 1-2 through five draws at the provincial championship.

Ackerman took control of the game early, scoring one in the first, then stealing two in the second and one more in the third to move in front 4-0. Behm battled back with singles in the fourth and fifth, but he couldn’t get any close as Ackerman scored deuces in the eighth and ninth ends to seal the win.
