MONTREAL — Nick Saturnino’s first victory stopped the hometown favourite from running away with the Canadian Mixed Curling Championship.

Saturnino scored three in the fifth end and another four in the 10th as the Northwest Territories beat Quebec’s Mike Fournier 11-6 on Tuesday.

In another late match, two-time champion Robert Campbell of P.E.I. improved to 3-4 with an 8-6 victory over Manitoba’s Terry McNamee (2-4).

Fournier (6-1) had been cruising atop the round robin before running into Saturnino (1-5), who moved out of the cellar he was sharing with Steve Fecteau’s Yukon club.

Fecteau dropped to 0-7 in the 10th draw with a 10-5 loss to B.C. skip Tom Buchy (3-3).

Nova Scotia’s Brent MacDougall beat Jeff Hartung’s Saskatchewan rink 8-3. That moves MacDougall (5-2) ahead of Hartung (4-2) for third in the standings behind Fournier and Ontario’s Cory Heggestad (5-1).
