Canada dominates at world junior curling championships in Aberdeen

Scotland's men reached tomorrow's final at the World Junior Curling Championships in Aberdeen

The Halifax-based team is celebrating another gold medal for Canada at the World Junior Curling Championships, held in Aberdeen, Scotland, this year.

"It's an unbelievable feeling", skip Tyler Tardi said after the match.

With the last stone of that extra end, Canada's skip Tardi's draw was good enough to score the one point that gave his team the win and the world title.

Tardi said the sixth end, in which they erased an early 2-1 deficit, boosted the team's confidence.

The finals are set to get underway at 7:00 a.m. Fort St. John time on Saturday.

The final two ends were marked by mistakes by both teams - missed takeouts, hogged guards - and it was Tardi's heavy draw on his last shot of the tenth that resulted in the extra end.

"It's a goal to force them to one and we got the end-goal that we wanted". "I know I put everything out there on the line today and came out on top and that's just an incredible feeling".

"To do it with these guys, there's not three better guys I could imagine winning it with".

"We knew that we didn't have anything to lose because we were playing the reigning world champions, so I think that all the pressure would have been on them", said Jones.

Stopera (Briarcliff Manor, N.Y.) and his team of Luc Violette (Lake Stevens, Wash.), Ben Richardson (Issaquah, Wash.), Graem Fenson (Bemidji) and Jonathon Harstad (Duluth) gave up a big end late in the game that fueled the 7-4 win by Jan Hess and the Swiss men. "Whenever they had the hammer we wanted to keep them close to one". "Sweden are not an easy target, for sure, but we had a really good game against them yesterday and maybe if we come out firing against them tomorrow we can put up a good game". Sweden scored one point in the fourth end to level the game at 2-2, but Canada moved ahead again in the fifth end when a double takeout by their skip Jones produced a score of three and a half-time lead of 5-2. They've been working so hard all season. But, we're really proud of what we've done this week.

"We had a lot of rocks in play in that end when we shouldn't have when we were up by four", said Jones.

"Of course, we were looking to defend our title but this happens and it's not the happiest moment in our lives really".

China claimed their first ever medal at the Championships, as they beat Norway 11-5 to win bronze.
