Jim Cotter will be back to defend his championship title in 2013 – but with a slightly altered team. Jason (Gunner) Gunnlaugson replaces the outgoing third, Kevin Folk. Tyrel Griffith and Rick Sawatsky remain team staples.
At last year’s final against Brent Pierce, Cotter was left watching as Pierce attempted an angle-raise takeout of Cotter’s loan stone for the victory. The sweepers were called on it early, but it wasn’t enough to hold the line and Pierce’s stone over-curled leaving Cotter with the steal and a 7-5 win.
Jim Cotter, Kevin Folk, Tyrel Griffith, Rick Sawatsky and Coach Rick Folk advanced to the Tim Hortons Brier in Saskatoon from March 3-11 but the team didn’t make it to the playoffs.
