CANMORE, Alta. -- The Trevor Bonot foursome suffered its first loss at the Canadian Mixed Curling Championship, but bounced back in their second match of the day and sit at 4-1 with one game left in pool play in Canmore, Alta.

Bonot feel 6-2 on Tuesday morning to Quebec's Jean-Michel Menard, giving up steals in the third and fourth to trail by three before rallying back with singles in the fifth and sixth ends.

Menard, the 2006 Brier champion, added two more in the seventh to put the game out of reach.

It was a much easier time for Bonot, Jackie McCormick, Mike McCarville and Amanda Gates in their second game of the day.

The Northern Ontario rink was in command from the start, opening with a deuce and stealing points in the next four ends, including four in the fifth, to run away with a 10-1 victory over Peter Van Strien's winless Nunavut rink.

Bonot will wrap up pool play on Wednesday against 4-0 Jamie Koe and the Northwest Territories, the lone unbeaten team left at the event.

The Thunder Bay and Sudbury-based rink will move on to the championship round, which gets under way on Thursday.

The top four teams in each pool advance to the championship round, playing the four teams from the other pool that also advanced, carrying their record over from round robin play. The top four teams make the playoffs.
