Kids come back for consolation

Glen Meadows curling team makes a comeback to win the Victoria Junior Cashspiel

Comeback kids Spencer Johns

The Glen Meadows junior program is seeing success in its first official year. One of the teams finished first in the D event of the first Victoria Optimist International Junior Cashspiel at the Victoria Curling Club.

Twelve teams of youths aged nine to 17 competed, including three from Abbotsford with the balance from south Island curling clubs.

Glen Meadows had one five person team, rotating one player out for each game. Skip Spencer Johns, Bronson Wille, Evan Scott-Moncrieff, James Mackey and Dietrich Wille dropped the first three games and wound up in the consolation round.

The Glen Meadows foursome found their stride, and went on to win their next three games.

Down four after four ends the team came back to win the final 7-6 over Victoria’s Kalocsai rink.
