Teams skipped by twin brothers Dennis and David Bohn, both representing Assiniboine Memorial Curling Club, have advanced to the Viterra Championship Playoff Round with wins on the 4PM draw at Stride Place in Portage.
The brothers curled together many times in the championship, including one trip to the championship final game which they lost to Kerry Burtnyk in 2008 in Brandon. Both have been skipping their own teams the last two years.
Today Dennis defeated Taylor McIntyre (Pembina) 7-5 while David trailed Derek Oryniak (Granite) 4-3 coming home but watched Oryniak wreck with his last rock draw to give up a four and a 7-4 David Bohn victory.
In other games Trevor Loreth (Granite) eliminated Steve Irwin (Brandon), scoring back to back deuces on the eighth and ninth ends for a 7-2 win and Jason Gunnlaugson (Granite) defeated Sean Grassie (Fort Rouge) 5-3
In the first round of playoff games at 7:45PM Friday Loreth plays Matt Dunstone (Deer Lodge), Dennis Bohn plays Mike McEwen (Fort Rouge), David Bohn plays William Lyburn (Granite) and Gunnlaugson plays former teammate Reid Carruthers (West St. Paul). Gunnlaugson and Carruthers were together when they lost the provincial final to Steinbach in 2006 in Steinbach.
