Howard allowed Kevin Martin to score four in the ninth end in a 9-7 come-from-behind victory at the Olympic curling trials in Winnipeg.

The loss drops the Penetanguishene skip to 1 and 3.

Alberta's Martin improves to 4-and-0 along with Brad Jacobs of Sault Ste. Marie.

On the women's side, Val Sweeting lost for the first time week, and is tied with Jennifer Jones at 3-and-1.
