Thursday Sports Notes

Canada has won its fourth straight Olympic gold medal in women's hockey and it happened in dramatic fashion. Marie-Philip Poulin scored in overtime to beat the Americans 3-2. The Canadians were down 2-0 with six minutes left in regulation but battled back and sent the game to a fourth period. Earleir this morning Switzerland won bronze with a 4-3 victory over Sweden.

Winnipeg's Jennifer Jones beat Sweden 6-3 today to win gold for Canada in women's curling in Sochi. It's just the second gold medal Canadian women have won since curling was introduced as an official sport and Sandra Schmirler won in Nagano, Japan, in 1998. Jones also had the first ever perfect run for women curlers at the Olympics, going 11-0. Canada's medal total is now 20 (7-9-4).

A couple curling tournaments are underway in the province. In Brandon it's the Senior Men's Provincial Curling Championship. Dauphin's Jim Todoruk is there and dropped his opening game 5-4 to Mike Mahon of Deer Lodge. Todoruk is back at it at 4:00pm, listen to CKDM tonight for updates. Meanwhile High School Provincials are in Rivers and Minnedosa. Hanne Jensen of Dauphin came up short in her first tilt, losing 9-2 to Samantha Rimke of Virden. Jensen goes back to the ice tomorrow.

Another one game night in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League, and it's an all Sher-Wood Division affair. This time the Virden Oil Capitals welcome the Neepawa Natives at 7:30. The Dauphin Kings have one more day off before their next tilt. They'll visit the Selkirk Steelers tomorrow to start a three game in three night stretch that will wrap up with their final home game on Sunday against Neepawa. Listen to tomorrow's contest on 730 CKDM. It goes at 7:30pm!

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have finally settled on their defensive coaching staff for this season, led by CFL veteran Gary Etcheverry as defensive co-ordinator. Nelson Martin is the club's defensive backs coach and Mike Scheper will be the defensive line coach. All three have recent experience with the Saskatchewan Roughriders.
