Carberry’s Braden Calvert will have to settle for a shot at a bronze medal at the world junior curling championships today in Flims, Switzerland.

Calvert’s Canadian championship junior men’s team out of Winnipeg, with Kyle Kurz, Lucas Van Den Bosch and Brendan Wilson, dropped a heartbreaking 6-5 extra-end decision to the host Switzerland team skipped by Yannick Schwaller in Tuesday’s 3-versus-4 Page playoff game. Calvert’s crew, which went 6-3 in the round robin, will face Norway for third place, while Switzerland and Scotland square off for gold.

"We’re a little disappointed right now," Calvert was quoted on worldcurling.org. "We didn’t really make the other team make too difficult shots. I think we’ll get rested and fired up to play the bronze-medal game."

Meanwhile, Canada’s Kelsey Rocque will curl for the world junior women’s title today after brushing by South Korea 7-6 in Monday’s 1-versus-2 Page playoff game. Canada will clash with Korea again today for gold after the Koreans knocked off the Swedes 7-4 in yesterday’s semifinal.
