Koe wins two games at the Brier on Sunday

According to TSN, Calgary's Kevin Koe improved to 2-1 at the 2014 Tim Horton's Brier in Kamloops, British Columbia on Sunday after two convincing victories over maritime-based teams.

After losing 7-6 to John Morris of British Columbia, Koe came out firing Sunday morning, stealing the first ten points on New Brunswick's James Grattan en route to an overwhelming 10-1 triumph.

The victory by Koe over Grattan was rather significant because Grattan upset Alberta champion Kevin Martin 6-5 last year at the Tim Horton's Brier in Edmonton. The loss by Martin was devastating because it was a major reason why he missed last year's playoffs.

Koe, who participates out of Calgary's Glencoe Club, then continued his outstanding play Sunday night against 2006 Olympic gold medalist Brad Gushue of Newfoundland. Koe dominated again and won by a score of 9-4.

On Monday, Koe's draws will not be easy. In the afternoon, he will face his brother Jamie of the Northwest Territories in a game he is reportedly not looking forward to, and then in the evening will play the 1996 and 2011 world champion Jeff Stoughton of Manitoba.
