Laycock defends Sasktel Tankard with 8-7 win over Jacobson in Final

For the first time since 1971 the province of Saskatchewan has back to back Sasktel Tankard champions as defending chanpion and Saltcoats product Steve Laycock made his draw for two in the 10th end to defeat fellow Saskatoon Nutana skip Jason Jacobson 8-7 in the Championship final at the Horizon Credit Union Center in Melville.

Laycock himself will be making his 5th Brier appearance, while its the 2nd straight trip for the team to the National tournament which takes place Feb. 28th- March 8th, 2015 at the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgaty, Alberta.

Jacobson was looking to book his first ticket into the Brier, advanced to the Final with a 8-3 victory over Langenburg's Jeff Hartung in the morning's Semi-Final.
