See the 39th Friars’ Briar Playoff on YouTube

The Victoria planning committee was able to negotiate with Shaw Communications for recording the Gold Medal playoffs of the 39th Friars’ Briar between Teams David Martin (Ontario) and Sieg Wall (Manitoba) on the final draws of Friday morning.

Initially hoped to be ‘live streamed’, at the end was taped for viewing later on YouTube.  None the less, it is worth taking time to view same, whether one was at the event or home awaiting results.  A cliff-hanger, the results were tied going into the 8th end, but ultimately Team Martin won by the score of 8 to 5

Commentating the event were: Melissa Soligo, Canadian Curling Association National Coach Consultant and Pastor George Friedrich, player with Friars’ Briar Team Paetsch.
