MONCTON, N.B. - Of all the victories Scotland's David Murdoch enjoyed over Canada's Kevin Martin, the third was the most satisfying of all.
Murdoch capped his dominance of the defending world champion Sunday, earning a 8-6 win over Martin's Edmonton foursome to wrap up his second world men's curling title.
The Scots had their way with Martin, beating him in the round-robin and again in the 1-versus-2 Page playoff game to earn an automatic berth in the final.
Murdoch made it count in the 10th end. Tied at six, Martin missed a pivotal last shot to give Murdoch the winning points.
It's the second title in four years for Murdoch, who beat Quebec's Jean-Michel Menard in the 2006 gold-medal game in Lowell, Massachusetts.
Martin, third John Morris, second Marc Kennedy and lead Ben Hebert fell short in their quest to become the first repeat champions since Randy Ferbey won back-to-back titles in 2002 and 2003.

Organizations: Martin's
