Greg Blyde and his team from the Remax Centre (St. John’s Curling Club) punched their ticket to the Canadian junior men’s curling championship with a 9-2 win over clubmate Nathan Young Friday in the provincial junior men’s final at the Remax Centre.
Blyde, Daniel Bruce, Ryan McNeil-Lamswood, Nathan King and coach Dennis Bruce will represent the province at the nationals next month in Prince Albert, Sask.
Up 4-2 after five ends, Blyde stole one in the sixth and put the game away with a steal of four in the seventh.
Blyde joins provincial women’s champs MacKenzie Glynn, Katie Follett, Sarah Chaytor, Camille Burt and coach Dave Trickett from the Remax Centre in Prince Albert. Glynn defeated clubmate Emily Neary Thursday afternoon to finish with a 4-0 preliminary-round record.
Daniel Bruce, McNeil-Lamswood and King curled in the junior nationals last year, going 4-6.
The Glynn team also curled in Shawinigan, Que., at nationals last winter, and went 5-5.
