Al Hutchinson’s RAM Promotional rink is 2016 Major Curling League champion.

Hutchinson claimed the Brokerlink Insurance Trophy last Wednesday night at the Port Elgin Curling Club with an 8-7 win over Jeff Thomson’s Chesley rink.

Both Hutchinson and Thomson took runs at each other but couldn’t pull away. Hutchinson sealed the win with a precise draw on the final shot of the game.

The B Final was also a nailbiter. Don Bartley came from behind to slide past Steve Gregg 6-5. AJ Schumaker won the C Final with a big seventh end, and the D Final also went to the wire when Tom Slumskie flipped places with Kincardine’s Les Shane and his BDO Canada rink.
