Going into the 10th end up by one and without the hammer did not work well for Carberry’s Braden Calvert and his Canadian team on the opening day of the 2014 world junior curling championships in Flims, Switzerland.
Calvert and his Winnipeg-based team of Kyle Kurz, Lucas Van Den Bosch and Brendan Wilson were in that situation in both of their games on Wednesday and came away with a pair of losses. Russia’s Artur Ali scored three in the 10th to top Canada 8-6 in the opening draw, while Sweden’s Fredrik Nyman scored a deuce in the final end to beat Calvert 6-5 later in the day.
The Canadian crew will try to get back on track today when it faces Amos Mosaner’s team from Italy that is 2-0.
Meanwhile, the Canadian women’s team skipped by Alberta’s Kelsey Rocque is 2-0 after the first day of the event.
