  • Print

BANFF, Alta. -- Jeff Stoughton edged Kevin Martin in a sudden-death finish to win the Travelers All-Star Curling Skins final on Sunday, along with $70,500 in prize money.

Martin took an early lead after winning the second end and taking $4,000 with a first end carry-over.

Stoughton replied to take the third end and pulled ahead following carry-overs in the fourth and fifth ends to take $13,000 in the sixth end.

Both Stoughton and Martin made incredible shots to force a seventh-end carry-over, with the eighth end also going undecided. Stoughton's shot secured the remaining $22,000 in prize money, plus a $15,000 winner's bonus to bring his final tally at the two-day event to $70,500.

Stoughton beat Brad Gushue in Saturday's semifinal while Martin downed Canada's 2014 Olympic representative Brad Jacobs to advance.
