Jordan McDonald’s team is getting a second chance.
The Deer Lodge squad will return to the Canadian under-21 men’s curling championship after successfully defending its Manitoba title on Saturday in Portage la Prairie.
McDonald scored a single point in the 10th end to post an 8-7 victory over Virden’s Jace Freeman.
In the provincial under-21 women’s final, Zoey Terrick of the Heather beat Grace Beaudry of St. Vital 9-8 in an extra end to earn a berth at the nationals.
The 2023 Canadian championships are scheduled for March 25 to April 2 in Rouyn-Noranda, Que., about 650 kilometres northwest of Montreal.
McDonald, third Reese Hamm, second Elias Huminicki and lead Cameron Olfason trailed 4-2 after four ends but rallied to lead 7-5 after seven ends before surrendering a deuce to Freeman in the eighth. The ninth end was blanked.
McDonald won the 2022 Manitoba championship and advanced to the nationals, losing to Saskatchewan in the bronze-medal game.
Terrick is joined on the winning team by two sisters — third Jaycee and lead Tessa — along with second Jensen Letham. They were down 5-1 after three ends but rallied to lead 8-7 through the ninth.
Defending junior women’s champion Tansy Tober was bounced from the event Friday night.
