Canadian Junior Curling Championships in Stratford, Ontario

Posted: January 27, 2016

The Canadian Junior Championships began last Saturday in Stratford Ontario, and BHS’s own Donovan Roy-Lanteigne(right) was there to represent New Brunswick as part of its’ provincial U21 championship team. Things got off to a rough start for the team as Donovan was diagnosed with strep throat and was unable to play their first game. A spare from Ontario stepped in for the game against Northern Ontario, but they were defeated 7-3. Things picked back up on Saturday when Donovan took to the ice in their defeat of the Yukon team. On Monday the team went on to win against both PEI and the Northwest Territories. On Tuesday they finished off their round robin play by splitting their games, losing to BC early in the day and then going through 2 extra ends to overcome Saskatchewan in the evening.

Today, they meet Manitoba at 1:30AST in the first of 4 crossover games. Too keep up with the action and see live scores from the games visit!/competitions/1898
