CALGARY – Canada’s Brad Gushue improved to 2-1 on the inaugural Pan Continental Curling Championships with an 11-2 win over Japan in Wednesday’s early draw.
Gushue’s workforce from St. John’s, N.L., opened with three factors and added an enormous four-point fourth finish within the lopsided win.
The Canadians capped the scoring with a steal of two within the seventh finish, prompting Japanese skip Riku Yanagisawa to concede.
In different early draw outcomes, New Zealand routed Brazil 13-3, South Korea downed the USA 10-6 and Chinese language Taipei beat Australia 9-4.
Gushue was scheduled to face South Korea in Wednesday’s late draw.
Canada’s ladies’s workforce (3-0), skipped by Kerri Einarson of Gimli, Man., confronted Australia within the afternoon draw on the Winsport Occasion Centre.
A top-five end will safe a berth for Einarson’s workforce within the March 18-26 world ladies’s championship in Sandviken, Sweden. As host nation, Canada already has a berth within the April 1-9 world males’s playdowns in Ottawa.
