Good wants to be better, Good wants to be best again

SAM GOOD tinkered with his Pembina Curling Club foursome this year, and brought in new second Jarred Hancox to replace Kent Moffatt. The defending Manitoba junior curling champion explained that the team felt Hancox gave them the best chance of repeating their title.

He's about to find out.

The 2009 junior men's provincial championship is set for Dec. 18-22 at Deer Lodge Curling Club. Rounding out Good's team is third Taylor McIntyre and David Wiebe at lead.

"It's been not bad," said Good, of the adjustment. "We've been inconsistent, but we're starting to come together at the right time."

The last team to qualify was Charleswood Curling Club's Ian Campbell, who defeated Daniel Winters of Deer Lodge 9-5 Thursday to win the zone floating berth.

Joining Good and Campbell in the provincials are the following zone winners: Zone 1, Todd Boisvert, Burntwood CC; Zone 2, Dylan Gousseau, Dauphin CC; Zone 3, Cory Degagne, Wheat City CC; Zone 4, Brett Fitzmaurice, Wheat City CC; Zone 5, Steen Sigurdson, Portage CC; Zone 6, Cal Rutter, Miami CC; Zone 7, Tyler Drews, La Salle CC; Zone 8. Jared Kolomaya, Stonewall CC; Zone 9, Curtis Kaatz, Beausejour CC; Zone 10, Michael Johnson, Assiniboine Memorial CC; Zone 11, Daniel Birchard, Pembina CC; Zone 13, Joel Hildebrand, Deer Lodge CC; Junior Berth, Riley Smith, Pembina CC; Junior Berth, Alex Forrest, Deer Lodge CC.

The last chance for Good and his team to tune up its skills is the Manitoba Junior Curling Tour bonspiel in Ste. Anne this weekend, and Good says they'll need it.

"We can't take any team (at the provincials) lightly," he said. "We're not going to be able to miss (any shots), and we have to take advantage of our opportunities."

The junior women will also contest their championship Dec. 18-22, at the Charleswood Curling Club.

The zone winners for that event include: Jesse Iles, The Pas CC, Zone 1; Meghan Brezden, Dauphin CC, Zone 2; Courtney Patterson, Hamiota CC, Zone 3; Danielle Wood, Brandon CC, Zone 4; Kristen McFarlane, Carberry CC, Zone 5; Carly Angers, Miami CC, Zone 6; Mallory Miller, Victoria CC, Zone 7; Meghan Armit, Stonewall CC, Zone 8; Erica Sigurdson, East St. Paul CC, Zone 9; Lindsay Robertson, Fort Rouge CC, Zone 10; Ashley Resler, Victoria CC; Zone 11; Kate Cameron, Victoria CC, Zone 12; Shannon Birchard, Pembina CC, Zone 13; Floating berth winner, Kayla Hanke, Neepawa CC; junior women's berth, Breanne Meakin, St.Vital CC and Alyssa Vandepoele, Ste.Anne CC.
