Team Colton Flasch
Team Colton Flasch from Saskatoon has been on a bit of a hot streak lately, coming into the Home Hardware Road to the Roar playing well as a foursome on the World Curling Tour. They picked up lead Matt Lang for the week as Lang was part of the Bruce Korte rink last season, which got them the spot for this years event.
Mid-way through pool play, Team Flasch dropped their first two games to Manitoba’s Jason Gunnlaugsson and Ontario’s Glenn Howard. But have responded very nicely defeateing British Columbias John Morris and fellow Saskatchewan rink in Adam Casey.
Team Flasch will hit the ice in Draw 15 tomorrow morning against Team Jamie Murphy of Nova Scotia.
