Kevin Koe fills big Alberta curling shoes,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych]
HALIFAX-After a decade put in the shadows, shrouded by the legacy of these two Canadian curling legends who occur to live in his province, Alberta skip Kevin Koe is about to make his long-awaited debut in the national spotlight.
Koe advanced towards the final of the Canadian men's curling championship by capturing a set of playoff games Saturday. After what often appeared like a lifetime allocated to the margins of the game, Koe is still alive within the Tim Hortons Brier and it has an opportunity to ensure Alberta's third title in as numerous years.
"It's a difficult province," Koe said. "And once you win it, you've got a pretty good possibility in the Brier, simply because of who you need to beat to obtain here. That's the attitude we've taken and it's an execllent opportunity to beat one of the best teams on the planet."
Koe pounded an upstart rink from Northern Ontario 10-3 Saturday night in Halifax,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], just hours after he squeaked past Newfoundland 6-5 in the playoff opener. The 35-year-old will face undefeated Ontario with veteran skip Glenn Howard for that title on Sunday night.
A win provides an immeasurable boost in his fight to leave the shadows cast by Kevin Martin and Randy Ferbey,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], legends with whom he not only shares a province,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], but also a city. The Edmonton-based veterans have ruled Alberta for the better part of two decades,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], with one or the other advancing to win the Brier eight times since 1991.
It had been a two-man show and Koe was stuck on the sidelines until this season. Koe posted an 8-3 record as a whole robin in the Brier,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], but finished third within the standings after a loss to Ontario within the final use Thursday night.
"I think the Koe gang is much more experienced than people let on," Howard said, hours before settling directly into watch Saturday night's game. "Playing in many those Grand Slams and the (Olympic) trials,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], that's only a huge experience."
That experience was displayed twice on Saturday and was especially highlighted in the rout of Northern Ontario. Koe jumped out to an early lead against skip Brad Jacobs, stealing two within the first end, before you take two more in the second.
Alberta has won the Brier 24 times since 1927,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], second simply to Manitoba (26) for the all-time lead. Martin,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], the Olympic gold medallist in Vancouver,[link widoczny dla zalogowanych], posted flawless 13-0 records to assert each of the previous two championships, extending his already considerable shadow.
