Jacobs to play in page playoff

Friday, April 05, 2013   by: Brad Coccimiglio

Sault Ste. Marie’s Brad Jacobs will be a part of the playoff round at the 2013 Men’s World Curling Championships in Victoria, BC.

Despite a pair of losses on Thursday, Jacobs advances to the 3vs.4 Page playoff against Denamark’s Rasmus Stjrnke, scheduled for Saturday.

The Jacobs rink - with third Ryan Fry, second E.J. Harnden and lead Ryan Harnden - dropped to 7-3 after opening the day with a 5-3 loss to Denmark, leaving the Canadian entry in second heading into the final draw of the round robin.

Jacobs entered Thursday nights draw against Sweden's Niklas Edin needing a win to clinch a spot in the 1vs2 page playoff but instead dropped an 11-7 decision. With the win, the Edin rink moved into second place, ahead of the Canadians, where they will now face Scotland’s David Murdoch in the 1vs2 page playoff on Friday.

A Canadian win over Sweden would have forced a tiebreaker scenario that would have found five teams at 6-5.

Good chance to refresh and get their mojo back.

Pull together, boys.
That's when you've been most successful.
The little comments when a shot is missed are not helpful; in fact I'd guess they are detrimental.
When a shot is missed, just fuggedaboudit; and get ready to make the next one. That's worked and will work again.

Go get em, boys! Good play and good luck!!

The article states that Brad and the boys play Friday which is incorrect according to the TSN website.
Friday April 5, Scotland plays Sweden at 10 pm.
Canada plays Denmark at 2 pm on Saturday April 6.

GO TEAM JACOBS !!!!!
