Darwin Bender of the Callie Curling Club stole one in the ninth end to beat Alberta's Bruno Yizek 7-6 in Sunday's final of the Canadian wheelchair curling championship in Thunder Bay, Ont.
Bender, with the backing of third Gil Dash, second Marie Wright, lead Larry Schrader and coaches Lorraine Arguin and Bob Capp, claimed Saskatchewan's first national wheelchair title.
Bender forced the extra end - teams play eight ends in wheelchair curling - by drawing the button for a 6-6 tie in the eighth.

Yizek advanced to the final by beating Bender 5-4 in the 1 vs. 2 Page Playoff game on Saturday. Yizek stole one in the eighth end for the victory. Bender then defeated Ontario's Mark Ideson 7-2 in Sunday's semifinal.
