Gobeil still has shot at playoffs

Scott Gobeil and his Team Manitoba rink still has an outside chance to claim one of the four playoff berths up for grabs at the Canadian Police Curling Championships being held at the Granite Curling Club in Winnipeg.
The Gobeil rink, comprised of third Dave Priestley, second Tyson Langrell, and lead Scott Bell, went 2-0 yesterday, with their biggest win coming against British Columbia.
Heading into the 10th end trailing 6-5, Gobeil scored his deuce to claim a 7-6 win, then followed that with a convincing 9-1 victory over New Brunswick, who remain winless.
Alberta still leads the standings at 7-1 (they suffered their first loss to Ontario yesterday), with Quebec, British Columbia, Ontario, and Team Canada all claiming a share of second place with a 6-2 record.
Then there’s Gobeil at 5-3, who will need to finish the round-robin portion strong to give himself a shot at a playoff berth.
Gobeil was to face Newfoundland (2-6) this afternoon and then Nova Scotia (3-5) later today, with the round-robin concluding tomorrow morning.
Tie-breakers, if necessary, will be played tomorrow afternoon, with the first round of the playoffs taking place that evening.
