Team Brunton claims first event of the year
2018-09-11
by Randy Pascal

The Kira Brunton Curl Sudbury U-21 junior women's rink sure looked like a team on a mission last weekend.

Opening their bonspiel schedule at the Royal Slam by Venue at the Kitchener-Waterloo Granite Club, the foursome of Brunton, Megan Smith (vice), Sara Guy (second) and Kate Sherry (lead) absolutely cruised, from start to finish, reeling off seven straight wins with the same ease with which they can convert an open takeout.

The noteworthy run began last Friday afternoon as Team Brunton doubled the Ariel Traxler rink from Fairbanks (Alaska) by a final count of 8-4, setting the stage for a busy final 48 hours.

Competing in back to back to back draws on Saturday, the NOCA (Northern Ontario Curling Association) reps stopped the defending Ontario U21 championship rink of Emma Wallingford (Ottawa) 7-4, bested the Parker Doig St George's Golf & Country Club (Etobicoke) rink 6-1, and closed off with a 7-5 victory over Lindsay Kastrau of Ottawa.

A commitment to a more rigid off-ice conditioning program continued to pay dividends the next day, when the locals were forced to go three straight, once again, beginning at 8:30 a.m.

Unfazed, the Sudbury quartet doubled Traxler for a second time (6-3 in the rematch), and proceded to make it look easy with a 6-0 whitewashing of Team Wallingford in the semi-finals and a 9-2 clobbering of Breanna Rozon (Dundas Valley Golf and Country Club) in the championship affair.

The team will now put their seven game winning streak on the line this coming weekend, returning to southern Ontario for the Stu Sells Junior Tankard at the Leaside Curling Club in Toronto.
