NORTH BAY, Ont. — Regina's Matt Dunstone toppled Brad Gushue of St. John's N.L., 8-5 on Sunday to capture the Masters men's title for his first victory on the Grand Slam of Curling tour.

Dunstone scored three in the third end for a 4-2 advantage and never gave up the lead, securing the victory with singles in the seventh and eighth ends.
