    Whyte Aims to Build On Early Momentum at KW Fall Classic

Ross Whyte (photo: Graeme Hart, PPA) opens with a 6-3 win over Fraser Reid as they look to build on early season momentum.

The quartet of Ross Whyte, Robin Brydone, Duncan McFadzean and Euan Kyle reached the final of their season opener at the Euro Super Series and followed that up by reaching the quarterfinals of their first overseas international event in over a year at the Stu Sells Oakville Tankard.

They are now looking to follow that up by maintaining their immaculate record of reaching the playoffs of every international they have competed in since joining the men's circuit two seasons ago.

"It is always great to make the playoffs in any event, but with two strong fields we have been in so far is a great confidence booster for the year," said Whyte.

"We are excited for the KW Fall Classic as we have been there before and really enjoyed the event."

Games began Thursday evening with Whyte winning 6-3 over Fraser Reid (Waterloo).

This calendar year, Whyte's only previous international trip was as Team Mouat's fifth man for their World Championship campaign in the Calgary bubble, so he is revelling in being back on the road again with the return to a more familiar curling calendar.

"It's great to be on tour again as it feels like we are back to normal and doing what we love to do, which is compete," he added.

The new look Team Paterson, comprising Kyle Waddell at skip with Ross Paterson throwing last rocks as well as Duncan Menzies and Craig Waddell on the front end are also playing this weekend in Kitchener-Waterloo. They are looking to extend their run in this tournament after just missing out on a playoff at the Oakville Tankard last weekend when they lost out to four-time world champion skip Glenn Howard.

Paterson opened with a 7-2 win over Alex Champ (Kitchener-Waterloo). Switzerland's Yves Stocker won 10-0 over Scott Mitchell (Whitby), while Sam Steep (Seaforth) upended Mark Paterson 8-1 and 2020 KW Fall Classic champion Paul Moffatt of Kitchener-Waterloo) won 6-0 over Nicholas Lemieux (St. Catharines).
