Saltcoats'-born Laycock is ready to represent new province at this years Tim Horton's Brier in Brandon

                                                     (from Curl BC)

Playing in the Tim Horton's Brier on the National stage is nothing new for Steve Laycock.

The Saltcoats-born curler and graduate of Yorkton Regional High School will be making his 8th appearance at the event but for the first time, he will be doing so not representing Saskatchewan.

This time he will be represented British Columbia during the 2019 Tim Horton's Brier in Brandon that kicks off this weekend, playing third for Jim Cotter's rink who captured the BC Men's title earlier this month.

Laycock joined the BC rink after most teams across the country shuffled their teams after the 4-year Olympic cycle ended last summer and he admits it'll be probably will hit him little more this weekend that he'll be representing a different province.

"It hasn't been all the different throughout the year, but I think when I go to put on that BC jacket for the first time, that's when it will hit me & will feel a little different but either way I'm excited for the opportunity to play at the event once again, no matter the province."

Laycock skipped the Saskatchewan rink to a 6-5 record at last year's Brier in Regina, and with this years edition not too far away just across the border from his hometown of Saltcoats either in Brandon, he says expects to receive lots of support.

"I have a lot of family and friends that will be coming to watch, and hopefully there will be people there I didn't expect to come that will make the trip because it's so close by and hopefully they don't have trouble of throwing the odd cheer out for Team BC here and there."

Laycock and Team BC will open up their Brier on Saturday night at 7PM when they face Stuart Thompson and Team Nova Scotia.

The event which runs from March 1st to 9th will officially kick off on Friday with the Wildcard game featuring Brendan Bottcher up against John Epping.

The visitors would grab their first lead at 2-1 just a few minutes later, as Cody Bruchkowski would snipe home his 20th of the year. But that lead wouldn't last long as 20 seconds later Eli Loon-Stewardson went forehand-backhand shelf to even it up at 2-2 after 20 minutes.

In the 2nd, the North Stars would grab control with a couple of goals back to back from 20 year old veterans McGregor Sinclair and Brayden Buziak that gave the North Stars their first two goal lead at 4-2. The Terriers would cut their deficit in half and make it a one goal game once again as Colby Brandt one-timed home a nice cross-ice pass from Chantz Petruic to cut it a 4-3 game after 2 periods.

The North Stars would regain their two goal lead just 15 seconds later, as Seth Summers beat Andrew Henderson five-hole for his 1st SJHL goal to make it 5-3. The North Stars would add a couple more in the third from McGregor Sinclair and Eli Loon-Stewardson (both 2nd of the nights) while Chantz Petruic would add his 2nd of the game to wrap up the scoring.

Chad Duran turned aside 23 shots to earn his 8th victory of the season while in the Terriers net, Andrew Henderson made 26 saves in the loss.
