Team Epping Captures Shorty Jenkins Classic – Now the 2nd Ranked Team in World
[CORNWALL, Ont.]— Hot off their win last week at the Oakville Tankard, new-look Team Epping kept it rolling last weekend by successfully defending their title at the Shorty Jenkins Classic in Cornwall, Ontario.
The Toronto foursome went 7-1 over the five-day event, beating Brad Jacobs 5-3 in the final. They also beat Brad Gushue, 7-4, in the quarter-final and Peter De Cruz, 7-2, in the semi-final. The win was especially sweet for Cornwall, Ontario native Mat Camm, who celebrated the win in his hometown in front of family and friends.
“It’s awesome any time you can win a spiel, especially a field like this,” Epping said. “This was one of the best fields other than a Slam. It was pretty much a Slam field. It feels awesome.”
The win also moves Team Epping up the world curling rankings as they now sit as the 2nd ranked team in the world.
Next up is the Stu Sells Toronto Tankard, October 3-7.
