DeBenedet beats Jackson twice to win zone bonspiel

After losing their round-robin game to Derek Jackson at the Zone 7 bonspiel here last weekend, Don DeBenedet’s rink had the unenviable task of having to beat him twice in the final to advance to the “Northwesterns.”

But DeBenedet’s crew did just that Sunday afternoon, stunning Jackson 7-6 and then 6-4 to earn one of three berths at the “Northwesterns” in Thunder Bay next month.
