Calvert close to playoff spot

Carberry’s Braden Calvert is inching closer to a playoff spot at the Canola junior men’s provincial curling championship at Portage la Prairie.

Calvert (4-1), who now curls out of Winnipeg, controlled his destiny in the Black Group heading into last night’s late game against defending champion Matt Dunstone (5-0). Calvert had a solid weekend, sweeping his games on Saturday before falling 10-7 in an extra end to Winnipeg’s J.T. Ryan on Sunday. Ryan and Shawn Davidson both were one game back of Calvert at 3-2.

Meanwhile, Brandon’s Tyler Grumpelt beat Ryan and Ty Dilello on Saturday and sported a 2-3 record going into last night’s late draw. However, his 8-4 loss to Austin Mustard (1-4), who’s from Carberry but curls out of Portage, on Sunday eliminated him from playoff contention.

In the Red Group, Brandon’s Shayne MacGranachan bounced back from a pair of losses on Saturday with two wins on Sunday to improve to 4-2 and remain in the hunt for a playoff spot heading into today’s final draw. MacGranachan needs to beat Nathaniel Swanson (1-5) and have Colin Kurz (2-4) upset Kyle Doering (5-1) today to earn a tiebreaker.

In the women’s event, all three teams with Westman connections have been eliminated from playoff contention. Minnedosa’s Jennifer Curle (3-3) lost both games on Saturday but won both on Sunday. However, she’s too far back to be involved in a tiebreaker in the Red Group.

In the Black Group, Carberry’s Kylee Calvert (1-4) posted a 10-1 win over Dauphin’s Hanne Jensen (0-5) on Sunday to pick up her lone victory of the event heading into last night’s late draw.
