Brandon’s Shayne MacGranachan dominated the UCT Junior Super League all year and capped his season with his first-ever championship on Sunday.
MacGranachan and his curling team of Cody Chatham, Donovan Hickson and Jeffery Steen went 15-1 in the round robin and played a patient final at the Brandon Curling Club that resulted in a 6-2 win over Bill Banyard’s squad that was skipped by Nathan Malfait.
MacGranachan didn’t find the scoreboard until fourth end when he drew to the four-foot to take a 2-1 lead. He then stole one in the fifth and held a 4-2 lead going into the eighth. Malfait missed his last shot and gave up a steal of two to hand MacGranachan the title.
MacGranachan’s team, which beat Tyler Grumpelt 7-3 in the semifinals and Kylee Calvert 6-2 in the quarter-finals, took home team bags and $625.
Banyard’s squad, which also included Peter Brandt and Andrew Evans, beat Grant Jackson 5-2 in the semifinals and Quinn Robins 6-5 in the quarter-finals.
