KITCHENER, Ont. Jonathan Allen Jersey . -- John Morris Kelowna, B.C., rink and Renee Sonnenberg, of Grande Prairie, Alta., were the first two teams to advance to the Roar of the Rings Canadian Curling Trials at the Road to the Roar pre-trials on Saturday. Morris, along with his squad of Jim Cotter, Tyrel Griffith and Rick Sawatsky, drew to the button in the 10th end to edge Sault Ste. Marie, Ont.s Brad Jacobs 5-4 to be the first of four teams -- two from the mens side and two from the womens -- to head to the Olympic trials in Winnipeg. The event runs from Dec. 1 to 8. Sonnenberg and her team of Lawnie MacDonald, Cary-Anne McTaggart and Rona Pasika, shook off an early defeat at the hands of Kelly Scott and beat the previously undefeated Kelowna foursome 12-4 in the womens A final to advance. Morris team went undefeated during the week, but the skip says they didnt play to their potential in the final. He says his foursome played a patient game and didnt want to be too aggressive. "This game wasnt our best and I dont think it was Jacobs best," Morris said. "It was a bit of cat and mouse. When the games that tight, no one really has to push the envelope too much. You just have to manage. "But we hung tough. Thats one of the first major championship big games weve really been in all year. Im proud of the guys for hanging tough and Jim made some key shots late that really picked us up." Both teams traded points starting in the second end, with each scratching back from one-point deficits before heading into the final end tied 4-4. Jacobs had two guards protecting his rock in the eight-foot ring, but Cotter, the fourth on Morris team, slid a shot gently between both rocks for the win. Jacobs didnt mince words about his teams performance with a chance at the Olympic trials on the line. "That was, quite frankly, terrible curling and quite embarrassing, some of the shot-making that we had in that last game," said Jacobs, the reigning Brier champion, who quickly stripped out of his curling jacket after the match and headed for the door. "No one was out there shooting the lights out like I thought we might be. No one went for the jugular. Everyone took their misses out there on both sides, thats why it was 4-4 game. Otherwise, if they would have been on, they probably would have clobbered us." Jacobs added: "Flat out, if were going to curl like that, were not going to come out of this thing. We need to bounce back and come back with a much better performance in our next one." Despite the loss, Jacobs gets another shot to make the finals tomorrow night when he faces the winner of the morning match between 2006 Olympic gold medallist Brad Gushue and 2003 world junior champion Steve Laycock, of Saskatoon. "Us losing that game is very typical of our team ... and weve always bounced back," Jacobs said. "Im really hoping that tomorrow well show a lot of resilience and play a lot better." Morris will go up against former skip Kevin Martin. Despite winning a world championship in 2008 and Olympic gold in 2010 with Martin, Morris had a fiery relationship with his fourth, and left the team after gaining an automatic berth in Winnipeg. "Is he in that bonspiel?" Morris joked. "Im sure well have a great match against Kev. Well both be gunning for each other and that was a tough break at the end of last year, but it had to happen. Im sure were going to have a barnburner." Though the mens final had some drama to the last shot, Sonnenberg erased any chance of that in the sixth end with three of her rocks surrounding one of Scotts. She used the hammer to squeeze the stone out of the cluster to score four for a 7-3 lead. Despite Scott getting one back in the seventh end, Sonnenberg added three in the eighth and two in the ninth before Scott conceded. Sonnenberg acknowledged that the sixth end started the inevitable end of the match. "That made a huge difference for our team, but at that point we werent going to let up one inch. Weve seen a million comebacks this week," Sonnenberg said. She added that in her earlier loss to Scott she wasnt comfortable with the ice and never really got used to it how "swingy" it was. This time, the ice swung her way. "It may have been an advantage that we played the B final there. We knew what side was a little straighter and the other side swung a whole bunch. But the girls played great and we put our rocks in good position today." Scott on the other hand, admitted she was baffled by the sheet and her rocks, and was never comfortable during the game. "We did not enjoy that performance on our behalf," Scott said. "We had moments of looking at what we are doing out there, but there wasnt really one end where we put all eight shots together." Scott gets a second chance at an Olympic trial spot tomorrow afternoon against Edmontons Val Sweeting, who staved off elimination by beating 2010 Olympic silver medallist Cheryl Bernard 9-7 Saturday morning. "We know the Sweeting team is very good," Scott said. "They are a young and up and coming team and (we are) going to have to be sharp tomorrow. "We bounce (back) pretty good. We said that coming into our game, that regardless of the outcome of tonights game, lets not let it rattle us. Given the outcome of our performance, I think thats one we just want to park." Sonnenberg, on the other hand, cant wait to get back out west for the trials. "I just love curling in Winnipeg," she said. Terrelle Pryor Jersey . Yet heading to New York, the Habs remain positive as it all comes down to the one main ingredient that the organization has built its team on - character. Joe Theismann Jersey . Bale has had a successful debut season in Spain, and Ancelotti appears ready to reward him with a starting role on Saturday. Ancelotti says "Gareth had some problems at the beginning (of the season) but when he found good physical condition he scored a lot of goals, he had a good impact on the team. http://www.theredskinsshoponline.com/Zach-Brown-Redskins-Jersey/ .Mateo Kovacic and Andrea Ranocchia scored for Inter, which had goalkeeper Samir Handanovic to thank for several crucial saves.Its an important victory against a Chievo side which plays well, Mancini said.The Big Man finished 1-3 in Week 3, dropping to 5-7 on the season in Schultz vs. The World. Now the CFL on TSN analyst is back with his picks for Week 4, including predictions for a surprising matchup of undefeateds in Winnipeg, and the Redblacks first ever home game. Edmonton Eskimos at Winnipeg Blue Bombers The best team in the West is Calgary. They have had two dominate wins; first beating Montreal 29-8 and then making it look easy over Toronto, 34-15. But the second best team in the West will be determined Thursday night in Winnipeg. With the Bombers you sense their confidence is genuine and real. Twice they have had to play excellent pressure response football that netted fourth quarter wins due to Drew Willy. And I dont discount the two defensive touchdowns in their game against the Alouettes as luck, both were a defence forcing a mistake than benefiting from one. This will be their best test yet because as confident as Winnipeg is, Edmonton is their equal in that mentality. I dont expect Adarius Bowman to score three touchdowns Thursday night as he did last Friday, but he will be a problem for Winnipeg. Another problem for Winnipeg will be pass protection. Drew Willy took some serious hits in the Montreal game, the second week in a row that protecting the quarterback was an issue. All logic says Edmonton wins, but logic does not play, it only influences. 24,000 fans followed by 27,000 fans the next week, the Blue Bombers need 30,000 fans to win on Thursday. Bombers win. Toronto Argonauts at Ottawa Redblacks If Toronto had beat Calgary last Saturday I would pick Ottawa to win their first CFL game this week, but they didnt so I cant. The pressure will be on Toronto to do what they did after their loss to the Roughriders: respond with excellence, and they should. The atmosphere at TD Place Stadium should be exceptional as it is another new beginning for an Ottawa team that wants to create new, positive history. But, after an offensive possession or two, that is diffused and it becomes about football only, not what is happening in the stadium. This one will be close as Ricky Ray will play at a higher level and Henry Burris will want to put on a show at home. Deshazor Everett Jersey. But only 11 points scored last week in Edmonton has to be a concern. The best player for the Redblacks is Chevon Walker. He runs as fast as he flashed success when he was a Hamilton Tiger-Cat. Still, my pick is the Argonauts. Hamilton Tiger-Cats at Calgary Stampeders At Saskatchewan, at Edmonton, and now at Calgary to start the season is a challenge for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. And with the news that Tim Hortons Field will not be ready on time, that takes an edge of enthusiasm away. But, welcome to pro football, where if you cant accept and handle adversity then you will fade away. Hamilton did a remarkable job with it last year and theres no reason they wont handle it this summer as professionals. Bigger problem is the Week 4 competition in Calgary. Is it too early to say the next quarterback star in this league is Bo Levi Mitchell? He may have the best supporting cast around him in comparison to what Drew Willy and Mike Reilly have as young quarterbacks, but he is as real as it gets. As long as Calgary does not self-implode, I just cant see them losing. And I can only see Hamilton winning if Jeremiah Masoli or Dan LeFevour self-explodes with an excellent performance. Im going with Calgary. Montreal Alouettes at BC Lions History is not on the side of the Alouettes. They have had problems playing well traveling East to West across the country for a 4pm kick-off time in Vancouver. Troy Smith looked better as a quarterback but so did Kevin Glen for the Lions. In their first meeting on July 4th, Montrael exposed a week offensive line for BC but this time around it should be better as the starting five have a game together under their belt and the video of that July 4th game to learn from. You cant expect Andrew Harris to have a second game as good as he had last week in Regina, but you can expect someone else to step up and shine. The Alouettes are good but have not played well in BC Place. The Lions will move to 2-2.
