Manitoba's Jeff Stoughton and B.C.'s John Morris won their final round-robin games Thursday night to finish the Canadian men's curling championship at 9-2.

A final Alberta win Friday would guarantee Kevin Koe a No. 1 finish at 10-1 leaving Manitoba second and B.C. third.

B.C. downed Saskatchewan 6-3 and Manitoba came from behind to beat Ontario 8-6 at the Tim Hortons Brier.
