Bottcher Opens Masters With Win Against Paterson


Alberta's Brendan Bottcher (Photo: Anil Mungal) opened up the 2021 Grand Slam Masters with win against Scotland's Ross Paterson.

The team from Edmonton got by Paterson's rink 6-2 during draw 3 on Tuesday afternoon at the Sixteen Mile Sports Complex in Oakville.

The anticipation for the Canadian Olympic Trials in November is big in the minds of the teams this week in Oakville, as the last four years of preparations will satisfy the dreams of only a handful of curlers come December.

Bottcher, with third Darren Moulding, second Bradley Thiessen and lead Karrick Martin come into the Masters having come up short in Swift Current at the IG Wealth Management Western Showdown where they failed to reach the playoffs. For Bottcher, that event worked as a testing ground where they rotated fifth player Pat Janssen into the lineup in preparation for the Canadian Olympic Trials in Saskatoon, as Bottcher himself even sat out a game, handing the reigns to Moulding to skip a game.

After starting with a hammer, Team Patterson opened the game up with a score of two in the first end.

Bottcher returned the favour in the second end, scoring a double and tying things up at two apiece.

A stolen point in the fourth gave Bottcher a 3-2 lead heading into the break.

The second half of the game is where Team Bottcher opened things up, scorning three consecutive stolen points to win the game 6-2.

With today's win, Team Bottcher moves to the second round of the men's A-Side in the triple knockout format. They await the winner of Tuesday evening's draw between Niklas Edin (SWE) and Jason Gunnlaugson (MB).

Team Paterson now drops to the B-Side, taking on the loser of the Edin vs Gunnlaugson draw.

Other draw three action saw two-time reigning Grand Slam champion Team Mouat (SCO) defeat USA's Rich Ruohonen 7-3, Brad Gushue (NL) got by Ross Whyte (SCO) 6-5, and John Epping (ON) downed Switzerland's Team Schwaller 4-2.

Preliminary round play continues in Oakvile at the Sixteen Mile Sports Complex with one final draw Tuesday evening, and four more draw continues Wednesday. Playoffs begin Saturday after with the final on Sunday.

Fans will be able to tune in to the latter part of this week's event when Sportsnet begins their coverage on Thursday morning at 11 am ET.
