He will face Regina's Scott Bitz Saturday morning.

Brent Gedak's Estevan rink beat Yorkton's Terry Marteniuk 7-6 in an extra end in Friday's early draw. The Gedak rink features Derek Owens and Malcolm Vanstone.

Josh Heidt, who has Moose Jaw's Brock Montgomery playing third for him, lost 10-8 to Bitz to drop down the C event.
