CANMORE, Alta. – The Trevor Bonot foursome bounced back in a big way on Friday night.

After dropping a 4-1 decision to New Brunswick earlier in the day, the Northern Ontario rink kept their playoff hopes alive at the Canadian Mixed Curling Championship in Canmore, Alta., doubling up Ontario’s Michael McLean 6-3.

Bonot, Amanda Gates, Mike McCarville and Jackie McCormick sit at 6-3 with one game left in championship pool play. They’ll look to continue their winning ways on Saturday night against Saskatchewan’s Dean Grindheim rink, who are 4-5 after Friday play.

The top four teams move on to Sunday’s semifinal round.

Jamie Koe’s Northwest Territories rink leads the pack at 7-1, while Quebec’s Jean-Michel Menard, a former Brier champion, is at 7-2. New Brunswick’s James Grattan is 6-2, while Northern Ontairo, Ontario and B.C. each have three losses.

B.C. takes on Koe on Saturday, while Ontario plays Menard.
