Koe struggling at the Tim Horton's Brier

According to TSN, Calgary's Kevin Koe lost two games on Friday at the 2014 Tim Horton's Brier in Kamloops, British Columbia.

In Koe's first game Friday, his Alberta curling team out of Calgary's Glencoe Club, lost 7-5 to Quebec and then he lost 9-5 to British Columbia in the 1-2 game.

Now, the two teams Koe lost to are formidable opponents--Quebec's Jean-Michel Menard won the 2006 Tim Horton's Brier in Regina, and Morris was the third for Edmonton's Kevin Martin on Canada's gold medal winning team at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver. However Koe is a world champion himself, having won the 2010 World Curling Championship in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy, and more is expected from him than what he delivered on Friday.

It seems that Koe is having problems reading the ice, placing the broom and figuring out the stones. These issues will need to be rectified if he hopes to win the 2014 Tim Horton's Brier. This evening he will play the winner of the 3-4 playoff game between Menard and Manitoba's Jeff Stoughton in the semi-final.
