Carberry’s Braden Calvert and his Canadian squad went on a roll at end of the world junior curling championships’ round-robin and secured a spot in the playoffs.

Calvert, third Kyle Kurz, second Lucas Van Den Bosch and lead Brendan Wilson, who curl out of Winnipeg’s Deer Lodge club, rolled off five straight wins to close out the round robin with a 6-3 record to put them in a four-way tie for second place in Flims, Switzerland.

Canada came out in third place overall in the standings and will meet the winner of today’s tiebreaker between Italy’s Amos Mosaner and Switzerland’s Yannick Schwaller in Tuesday’s 3-vs.-4 Page playoff game.

The Canadians closed out the round-robin in dominating fashion with a pair of six-end wins on Sunday.

They beat Jake Vukich of the United States 8-1 before disposing of Austria’s Sebastian Wunderer 9-1.

On Saturday, Calvert defeated Norway’s Eirik Mjoeen 6-5 to hand him his first loss of the event before topping Schwaller 7-2.

Mjoeen topped the standings at 7-2 and will face Scotland’s Kyle Smith in Tuesday’s 1-vs.-2 Page playoff game. The semifinal is also set for Tuesday, while the gold and bronze-medal games will take place on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, in the junior women’s event, Alberta’s Kelsey Rocque skipped her squad to a 7-2 mark and a berth in today’s 1-vs.-2 Page playoff game against South Korea’s Kyeong-Ae Kim, who also went 7-2.
