Northwest Territories skip Jamie Koe suffered his sixth straight defeat as a miserable week at curling’s Brier continued.
John Morris and Team Canada beat the NWT 6-3 on Tuesday afternoon, following an 11-3 defeat by Manitoba that morning.
Koe and the NWT remain winless at the men’s national championship.
Standings: Round robin at the Brier
The NWT’s results are testing the team’s “keep calm and Koe on” maxim to the limit.
“Apparently there is practice ice,” Koe had tweeted on Monday. In a light-hearted response, governing body Curling Canada claimed it was Koe’s first trip to the Brier’s after-hours practice ice in nine years.
Meanwhile, brother Kevin Koe – leading the Alberta team at the Brier – has recovered from a brief bout of sickness he attributed to either food poisoning or a flu bug.
The Koe brothers face each other in round-robin play on Wednesday evening.
