Mike McEwen and his West St. Paul team will have to win two games Sunday if they wish to defend the provincial championship title they won a year ago in Virden.
Down one coming home, with his last shot McEwen attempted to rub the shot rock off the button but just slid by to give Jason Gunnlaugson (Morris) a steal of one for an 8-6 win.
Gunnlaugson advances to the final game at 2:30PM Sunday while McEwen will have to win a pair of games on Sunday,
McEwen will face off against Sean Grassie (Deer Lodge) in the 8:30AM semi-final. Grassie needed an extra end to eliminate William Lyburn (Granite). Lyburn had scored a pair coming home to tie but overcurled with his last rock on the extra end and Grassie did not have to throw his final stone.
