It was a convincing win for Ontario's Glenn Howard at the third annual Meyers, Norris, Penny Prairie Classic yesterday at the Portage Curling Club.

He took the championship with a 7-1 triumph over Joel Jordison of Moose Jaw. It's Howard's second championship in a row, and he expects to try for a 3-peat in 2008, as long as things like dates don't change.

Meanwhile, despite the loss, Joel Jordison enjoyed the switch from 10-end to 8-end games. He notes the ice was good at the event, which makes it easier when you have the hammer and have to go hard from the opening throw.

Howard took command early with, 2 in the first end, 2 more in the third, and 3 in the fifth. That's when the teams shook hands.
Jordison's lone point came in the second end.
