MONTREAL - There's a logjam atop the standings at the Canadian Mixed Curling Championship after Ontario's Cory Heggestad edged Alberta's Kurt Balderston 9-8 in Draw 14 on Thursday morning.

The win pushed Orillia CC skip into a three-way tie for first at 7-2, along with Quebec's Mike Fournier and Nova Scotia's Brent MacDougall.

New Brunswick's James Grattan is alone in fourth at 6-3 after he scored five points in the ninth end to defeat Mike Assad of Northern Ontario 10-6.

Assad is in a four way tie for fifth at 5-4 with B.C.'s Tom Buchy, P.E.I.'s Robert Campbell and Saskatchewan's Jeff Hartung.

Buchy kept his playoff hopes alive with a 7-6 win over Hartung. The key end was the eighth, with the score tied at five, Hartung missed a routine take-out to blank that end giving Buchy a steal of one.

Also in the morning draw, Manitoba's Terry McNamee (3-6) defeated the Northwest Territories' Nick Saturnino 9-2. NWT dropped to 1-8.

Play continued Thursday at the TMR Curling Club with Draw 15 and 16.
