Quebec fell victim to The Sheriff on Tuesday at the Tim Hortons Brier in Calgary.
Skip Matt Dunstone and his Team Saskatchewan rink earned a 9-6 victory over Michael Fournier’s group, the third consecutive win for the 25-year-old Kamloops resident at the men’s national curling championship.
There are 18 teams at the tournament, nine each in Pool A and Pool B.
Saskatchewan, 4-1 and tied for second in Pool B standings as of Tuesday afternoon, is scheduled to play twice on Wednesday — 7:30 a.m. against Wild Card No. 2 (Kevin Koe) and 5:30 p.m. versus P.E.I. (Eddie MacKenzie).
After round-robin play, four teams from each pool will advance to the Championship Pool, from which three playoff teams will emerge.
