Joel Jordison delivers a stone at the Moose Jaw Ford Curling Centre.
He's going to need something similar if he's going to win a second SaskTel Tankard men's provincial curling title.
Facing Saskatoon's Darren Camm, Jordison trailed 6-2 heading into the seventh end. The Moose Jaw skip scored two and then stole a single point in each of the eighth, ninth and 10th ends to post a 7-6 win.
Jordison lost to Langenburg's Jeff Hartung 9-5 in the 4 p.m. draw to drop down the C event. In the late draw he stayed alive by beating Saskatoon's Bruce Korte 7-5. Jordison scored twice in the ninth end and then stole a point in the 10th end to hang on.
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.
Gedak beat Heidt 5-4 in an extra end to stay alive in the C event.
Steven Laycock qualified through the A event as he beat Brock Virtue 5-4 in an extra end.
Virtue will face Darrell McKee in the B event final Saturday morning.
