Two Cochrane curlers are hunting for gold in this morning's U21 national men's final in Fort McMurray.

Today at 11 a.m., they have a rematch against Nova Scotia's MacIssac rink.

Team Wipf, which includes Cochrane third Ky Macaulay and lead Max Cinnamon, advanced with a 7-5 semifinal win last night against Team Freeman, of Manitoba.

Earlier in the championship, Team Freeman handed the Kenan Wipf rink their only loss in the championship. Team Wipf conceded after falling behind 8-3 in the eighth end.

Skipped by Kenan Wipf, the Alberta champions went ahead 4-3 in the third end of the semifinal, scored two in the eighth and one in the ninth, then limited Team Freeman to one in the tenth end for the win.

Wipf advanced directly into the semifinal after finishing at the top of their pool with a 7-1 record.

The MacIssac rink finished second in the same pool with an 8-6 record. They advanced to the final with a 7-5 win over Saskatchewan's Dylan Derksen last night. Derksen was undefeated in preliminary play.

Wipf beat MacIssac, 7-6, in their opening draw of the championship, holding off a comeback from the Nova Scotia rink.

Freeman and Derksen meet in the bronze medal game, also at 11 a.m.
