A few days have gone by since the start of the Brier in Brandon, Manitoba back on Saturday, March 2. Team Sask. opened their tournament with a close loss from hosts Team Manitoba 7-6.

But since then, the Muyres and Marsh brothers from Saskatoon's Nutana Curling Club have grown throughout the tournament, losing a couple more and winning a few to keep up with the rest of the teams.

Following their first defeat, Team Muyres were on a roll with wins over Yukon, Prince Edward Island and Quebec. Their next couple draws would flip back and forth, conceding against a difficult Northern Ontario side, before rebounding with a strong performance versus Newfoundland and Labrador.

At this point, Saskatchewan had clinched a spot in the championship pool with the rest of the top squads in the Brier. They had one more match to wrap up their schedule for Pool A, falling 8-2 yesterday afternoon to last year's runners up – the Wild Card team skipped by Edmonton, Alberta's Brendan Bottcher.

Finishing tied for third place in Pool A with Manitoba at 4 wins and 3 losses, Team Sask. begins their championship pool schedule this afternoon. At 2:00 p.m. CST, they'll take on Scott McDonald and Team Ontario (4-3) to kick things off, before sharing the ice with 2018 Brier champion Brad Gushue and Team Canada (6-1) at 7:00 p.m. CST.

Saskatchewan will then be dealt a tough test tomorrow afternoon when they take on Biggar's Colton Flasch and Team Alberta (7-0), then capping things off with a meeting against former teammate Steve Laycock and British Columbia (4-3). Flasch, Laycock and the Muyres brothers represented the province at the 2015 Brier in Calgary, Alberta where they reached third place.
