Carberry’s Braden Calvert and his Winnipeg-based team will play for a national curling championship on Sunday.

Calvert, third Kyle Kurz, second Lucas Van Den Bosch and lead Brendan Wilson won both of their games at the M&M Meat Shops Canadian junior championships in Liverpool, N.S., on Wednesday to improve to 8-0, clinch first place in the men’s championship pool and secure a spot in the final.

Manitoba started the day with a 6-4 victory over New Brunswick’s Rene Comeau (6-2) and followed it up with a 5-4 win over Alberta’s Carter Lautner (5-3). Calvert grabbed control against New Brunswick with a steal in the sixth end and a deuce in the eighth to take a 6-3 advantage. The game against Alberta was tied after eight, but Calvert scored a deuce in nine and forced Lautner to one in the 10th to get the win.

Manitoba will wrap up the championship pool section of the tournament today with games against Nova Scotia and British Columbia. The team will then have Friday and Saturday off before playing in Sunday’s final at 2 p.m. (TSN).

Meanwhile, Dauphin’s Meaghan Brezden kept her playoff hopes alive with a pair of wins on Wednesday. Brezden and her team of Abby Ackland, Danielle LaFleur and Nikki Boulet, scored three in the eighth end to knock off Quebec’s Camille Boisvert 7-3 before topping Saskatchewan’s Kristen Striefel 7-6. Brezden scored four in the seventh end to take control against Saskatchewan and scored one in the 10th to secure the victory.

Manitoba (5-3) is tied for fourth in the championship pool, with the top three making the playoffs. Manitoba takes on Alberta (7-1) and British Columbia (6-2) today.
