Brock Montgomery and Team Heidt, skipped by Kerrobert's Josh Heidt, won their opening game 8-6 over Team Kleiter.

Team Heidt had to come back against the provincial junior champions after falling behind 5-1 after five ends. Heidt responded with three in the sixth to make it a one-point game. Kleiter answered back with one int he seventh, but Heidt tied the game with one in the eighth and a steal of one in the ninth.

A steal of two in the tenth gave Team Heidt the win in their opener, moving them into the 'A' Event quarterfinal against Team Comfort at 9 a.m. on Thursday.

Also on Wednesday, Chadd McKenzie and Team Fell lost 8-6 to the defending provincial champions, Team Dunstone. 

The Matthew Dunstone rink stole three in the fourth to lead 6-1 and then moved in front 8-2 after six. McKenzie, Lloyd Fell and company fought back to make it a two-point game heading into the tenth, but they ran out of rocks in the final end.

Derek Owens, Jason Ackerman and Team Gedak dropped a 12-4 game to Team Comfort.
