WINNIPEG -- Jeff Stoughton made a great shot to tie their game but it wasnt enough as Kevin Martin extended his winning streak at the Olympic Curling Trials to two games and put Stoughton in a must-win situation from now on. James Bradberry Jersey . "Wasnt that something . . youre just never safe," Martin said of Stoughtons shot, minutes after the Edmonton skips single in the 10th made it 6-5. "We had to make it a tough double and of course he made an incredible double and made it a close game." Brad Jacobs and John Morris also stayed undefeated. Morris, Martins former third, is curling with B.C.s Jim Cotter and he beat Calgarys Kevin Koe 6-4 and Jacobs, out of Sault Ste Marie, Ont., downed Winnipegs Mike McEwan 7-5. Glenn Howard, out of Coldwater, also beat fellow Ontario skip John Epping of Toronto 9-5, which left both at 1-1. The crowd at the MTS Centre had lots to cheer about as Stoughton made a difficult double off one of Martins stones to score three in the ninth. He missed another, perhaps even more difficult, multiple takeout in the sixth that could have given him four but he had to settle for one. Stoughton knows he has no more room left to lose another game, with all agreeing a record of 5-2 is probably a must to make the playoffs. "I would think so. Its not where we wanted to be after two games," he said. "Weve played worse and won." He has already said this will be the last time he tries to win a spot on the Olympic team. "Theres five games left . . Were not out of this by any means." Martin agreed that losing more than two looks like elimination. "Five and two is safe, four and three I dont think ever has been." Jacobs was enjoying the moment as well. "Its a seven-game round robin so every win is huge. You feel great to be at 2-0. You wouldnt want to be 0-2," he said. On the womens side of the event, an underdog and a favourite remained the only undefeated teams after the morning draw. Former world champion Jennifer Jones needed an extra end to finish off Ontarios Sherry Middaugh. "It was a really hard fought battle and we gave up a really bad three in the seventh end but the girls hung in there and we found a way to win that game, which were going to need this week if were going to be successful," said Jones. The four-time Scotties winner has tried twice before to win a coveted spot on Canadas Olympic team and both times failed to make the playoffs. The win left Jones tied at the top of the standings at the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings with Val Sweeting, who curls out of Edmonton, and whose best and only finish to date at a Scotties was 4-7 in 2010. "The record is a bonus," said Sweeting. "We thought we started that game better but we had a little bit of a shaky last half so maybe tonight well have a solid game start to finish." They knew they would need it, since they were set to meet Jones in the evening draw. After giving up a three in the seventh, Jones scored two in the 10th end to tie the game and forced Middaugh to make a tight hit that she flashed in the extra as her team fell to 1-1. "My guard in 10, thrown a bit better . . . maybe Jennifer would have had a harder deuce," said Middaugh. "I just overthrew and kind of popped out my one in the extra end." Sweeting defeated Saskatoons Stefanie Lawton 8-6. Lawton also lost Sundays opening draw and fell to 0-2. In other scores from the morning draw, Winnipegs Chelsea Carey also needed an extra end to hand Edmontons Heather Nedohin her second loss, beating her 8-5, and Ottawas Rachel Homan downed Renee Sonnenberg of Grande Prairie, Alta., 8-2, leaving both at 1-1. "We really needed a win this morning," said Homan, the reigning Canadian champ who finished third at the world championships. "I guess you could say a lot more pressure this morning than there was yesterday." The Manitoba Curling Association and the province also announced Monday that curling is joining the CFLs Winnipeg Blue Bombers and NHLs Jets with a specialty license plate of its own, and part of the proceeds will go to the associations Curling for Life Endowment Fund. Greg Olsen Jersey . The first of the three games will be played in Week 4, when the Oakland Raiders will take on the Miami Dolphins on Sept. Kelvin Benjamin Jersey . "No difference at all," chirped U.S. roommate and linemate James van Riemsdyk. "Its still the same cranky Phil. http://www.thepanthersofficialstore.com/authentic-ryan-kalil-panthers-jersey/ . LOUIS -- The Atlanta Braves used a two-run rally in the ninth to end their road trip with a win.CLEVELAND -- Cavaliers rookie forward Anthony Bennett of Brampton, Ont., the top pick in this years NBA draft, has asthma and sleep apnea. Cleveland coach Mike Brown revealed Bennetts conditions Thursday night before the Cavs hosted the Detroit Pistons in an exhibition game. Bennetts asthma was not widely known and obviously did not prevent the Cavs from taking the former UNLV star in Junes draft. Bennett has had some breathing issues during workouts and in preseason games, and him being sometimes winded had been attributed to him not being able to work out as much this summer after undergoing shoulder surgery in May. But Brown said Bennett also deals with asthma and wears a mask at night for his sleep apnea. "Its a culmination of a lot of things," Brown said. "The shoulder, hes been out for a while, hes got asthma. Were throwing a lot at him. J.J. Jansen Jersey. Hes probably never played this hard against this competition in his life. Hes got sleep apnea and some other things. He likes to stay up late." The 6-foot-8, 259-pound Bennett averaged 10 points and 6.3 rebounds in his first three NBA preseason games. Hes coming off the bench for Brown, and made his first shot -- a 3-pointer -- against the Pistons and followed that up with a breakaway dunk. Brown said Bennetts breathing issues are noticeable. "Its been tiring to watch him because every time I watch him hes (gasping)," Brown said. "It makes me tired, so I try not to look at him. I tell him, If you need a sub, just tell me. Otherwise Im not going to look at you." Bennett was not in Clevelands locker room during the period it was open for media members.
