Allan Becker, skip of the Humboldt foursome from Saskatchewan, admitted over-confidence might have got the better of the rink which led the way for two straight losses after two convincing wins. He topped Mark McDonald of Gananoque, Ont., 84 in the ninth round to take over sole possession of first place with seven wins and two defeats. The setbacks dropped McDonald and Cote-the previous leaders-into a second-place tie, both with 6-2 records entering this morning's 10th draw of the 11-rink round-robin tournament.
