LIVERPOOL, N. Stan Smith Clearance .S. -- Manitobas Braden Calvert is one victory away from winning the Canadian junior mens curling championship. Calverts team from Winnipeg — third Kyle Kurz, second Lucas Van Den Bosch, lead Brendan Wilson and coach Tom Clasper — clinched first place in the round-robin and a bye to Sundays gold-medal game with a 5-4 win over Albertas Carter Lautner on Wednesday. With the victory, Manitoba improved to 8-0 and gained the necessary tiebreaker advantages to clinch first place and the bye to the final. "Thats a pretty neat feeling," said Calvert, whose team defeated reigning Canadian junior mens champ Matt Dunstone in the Manitoba final. "The boys have played so well in front of me; they just made my job so easy all week." Now, the issue becomes how to deal with nearly four full days of thinking about the final, with two round-robin games to play and a day off on Saturday. "I think our team is great at staying loose and trying to have fun all the time," said Calvert with a smile. "I think well be OK that way. We brought a PS3 and NHL14, so well be pretty busy at that. Well hopefully be able to take our minds off it a little bit."
