Play at Canadian men’s curling championship delayed by power outage

Play was suspended for just over an hour at the Tim Hortons Brier due to a power outage at the Mile One Centre in St. John's, N.L. (Anil Mungal)

ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – Play at the Tim Hortons Brier was delayed Saturday afternoon due to a power failure.

The lights at Mile One Centre went out after the third end of the Page playoff 3-4 game between Canada’s Kevin Koe and Northern Ontario’s Brad Jacobs.

The arena went completely dark for a few seconds before back-up generators kicked in.

There was no immediate word on how long play might be delayed. A weather advisory had been issued earlier in the day due to a wind storm in St. John’s.
