Matt Dunstone and his fellow members of Team Canada returned home from Russia this week after winning bronze medals at the World Junior Curling Championship.
Dunstone, third Colton Lott, second Daniel Grant, who lives in St. Vital, and lead Brendan MacCuish, represented Canada in Sochi, home of next winter’s Olympic Games.
The team went 7-2 in the round robin, earning a berth in the 1vs 2 page playoff game.
The Canadians lost that game to Scotland, 8-6, which meant a semifinal matchup with the home team.
The Russians upset Dunstone’s team 11-8, scoring three in an extra end.
The team that calls West Kildonan Curling Club home bounced back in the bronze-medal game against Sweden. Canada scored three in the second end, and went on to win 6-4.
