FINAL DAY OF QUALIFYING AT TELUS JUNIORS

Zoey Terrick’s Heather team has already qualified for the championship Page Playoff in the CurlManitoba TELUS Junior Women’s Championship in Portage. They await three more teams who will qualify through the triple knockout event’s “C” division on the earlier draws to day.

Grace Beaudry’s St. Vital team, with Emily Ogg throwing fourth stones, plays Katy Lukowich (Granite) on the 11AM draw in Portage in the “B” Qualifying game. The loser will drop to the “C: Qualifier against the winner between Dayna Wahl (Altona) and Tansy Tober (Fort Garry). The other “C” Qualifier at 3:30PM today will have Cheyenne Ehnes playing the winner of a morning game between Shaela Hayward (Carman) and Morgan Maguet (East St. Paul).

Meanwhile, in the TELUS junior Men’s, the top two seeds have unbeaten 3W-0L records with a game to play on the morning draw. Top seed Jordon McDonald and #2 Jace Freeman are assured of advancing to the Page Playoff round. McDonald will play in the 1 vs 1 game while Freeman must win to earn his pool’s first place ranking.

In the McDonald pool, Ronan Peterson (Heather) can finish at 3W-1L with a win over Tanner Graham (Heather). However, even with that win and a McDonald loss (to winless Jonathan Kostna – Pembina), McDonald will have first place locked up thanks to an earlier win over Peterson. A Peterson loss and 2W-2L record will create a 2W-2L second place tie with Ggaham and Hunter Dundas (Brandon).

In the Freeman pool, the leader plays Aaron Van Ryssel (Springfield). A Van Ryssel win would mean the two teams have 3W-1L records and Van Ryssel would be awarded first place due to the win. A Van Ryssel loss would mean a 2W-2L record and a tie with the winner between Colton Olafson and Zack Norris (Morris). Van Ryssel beat Norris but lost to Olafson in the round robin.
