Calvert comes through in clutch

Carberry’s Braden Calvert and his Canadian team earned their first win at the world junior curling championships in Flims, Switzerland on Thursday.

Calvert and his Winnipeg squad of Kyle Kurz, Lucas Van Den Bosch and Brendan Wilson scored two in the 10th end to defeat Italy’s Amos Mosaner 8-7. The Canadians turned into thieves as they stole singles in the fourth and fifth ends to tie the game 3-3 after giving up three in second end. They stole two more in the eighth to take a 6-5 lead.

“That was definitely a big comeback,” Calvert said in a press release. “We just stuck with our game plan and it finally paid off in the end. It definitely takes a hit to the team’s confidence when you go behind by three so early on. We knew we just had to get the two (points) and force the one repeatedly and we did that and we were lucky to get out on top today.”

Canada is in a four-way tie for sixth place in the standings at 1-2. Italy dropped to 2-1.

Calvert returns to the ice today for games against Scotland’s Kyle Smith (2-1) and China’s Zhilin Shao (0-3).

Meanwhile, in the junior women’s event, Canada’s Kelsey Rocque dropped a pair games to fall to 2-2 in the event.
