Men’s provincials underway

It was an up-and-down day for Devlin native Mike Badiuk yesterday in Timmins.
Thunder Bay’s Dylan Johnston, with Badiuk playing second, sat in a four-way tie for third at 1-1 going into action today at the provincial men’s curling championships.

Johnston edged Dan Lemieux (Sault Ste. Marie) 4-3 in an extra end in the opening draw yesterday, but then was on the wrong side of a 9-6 decision against Bryan Burgess (Thunder Bay) last night.
Burgess and Bryan Adams Jr. (Thunder Bay) led the way at 2-0 after Day 1.
Johnston was tied with Jeff Currie (Thunder Bay), Mike Jakubo (Sudbury), and Robbie Gordon (Sudbury).
Trailing the pack were Stratton native Trevor Bonot and Lemieux at 0-2.
Bonot, now living and curling out of Thunder Bay, was drubbed 9-3 in seven ends by Currie to open play yesterday.
Bonot then lost 9-4 to Jakubo in eight ends last night.
Today’s schedule sees Johnston facing Jakubo at noon and then Currie at 6:30 p.m. while Bonot meets Lemieux and Burgess (all times are CST).
