Red Deer’s Jocelyn Peterman is off to the World Junior Curling Championship from March 3-11 in Ostersund, Sweden.
On Saturday in Napanee, Ontario, Peterman representing Team Alberta, defeated Team Manitoba’s Shannon Birchard 12-6 in the M & M Meat Shop Canadian Junior Curling Championship Final.
Peterman’s victory was a complete blowout. She once led 9-1 at the half-way point of the match. Peterman’s team includes third Brittany Tran, second Rebecca Konschuh and lead Kristine Anderson.
Edmonton’s Brendan Bottcher could make it an Alberta sweep. Bottcher, of Edmonton, will play either Kyle Doering of Manitoba or Brennan Wark of Northern Ontario in the men’s final today.
It is also getting interesting at the Alberta’s Men’s Provincial Championship in Camrose. This morning Olympic champion Kevin Martin is taking on Calgary’s Brock Virtue in the semi-final with the winner taking on former World Champion Kevin Koe. Don’t count out Virtue though, as he upset Martin 7-4 in the B qualifier Friday night.
