SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. -- Wayne Tallon took a long-awaited step to the top level of the podium at a Canadian curling championship Sunday.

A three-time national runner-up (2000 Brier, 2008 and 2009 seniors, all with Russ Howard), the 56-year-old Tallon and his New Brunswick teammates rolled to an 11-3 win over Ontario's Howard Rajala in the men's gold-medal game at the Canadian senior curling championships

New Brunswick opened the scoring with a deuce in the second, a steal of one in the third and a crushing steal of three in the fourth against the Ontario champs from the Rideau Curling Club in Ottawa. Alberta's Wade White took the bronze medal.

In the women's final, Nova Scotia's Colleen Pinkney claimed her second Canadian championship, scoring a four in the ninth end to beat Alberta's Deb Santos 7-6.Manitoba's Lois Fowler won the bronze.

Pinkney's victory wasn't assured until her team made a series of come-arounds behind a centre guard, eventually leaving the skip with a draw to score four in the ninth after trailing 5-3 in the eighth end.
