A Frontier rink skipped by Kent Evenson won their second Provincial curling title in 16 days on Sunday.
Just two weeks after winning the SHSAA Mixed Provincial Championship in Moose Jaw, Evenson’s rink won the Provincial Juvenile Open Championship hosted by the Shaunavon Curling Club last week.
Evenson, representing the Frontier Curling Club, was joined by third Cassidy Onerheim, second Adam Keith, lead Adrian Keith and were coached by Jay Peterson.
Evenson faced North Battleford’s Mathew Taylor in the final and led early, scoring single points in the first, second, and third ends before adding a pair in the fourth to make it 5-0. Taylor got on the board with a single in the fifth to cut the deficit to four points. Evenson added a point in sixth and then stole one in the seventh to end the game.
Evenson, 17, said they saved their best curling for the end.
“The whole team was pretty good. We rarely missed an open shot or we rarely missed any shot. It was always we got half of it or we made it.”
He admitted that his goals at the start of the season were nowhere near the two provincial titles his team achieved this month.
“At the beginning of the year I didn’t know,” he laughed. “Coming from last year we had only gotten to Districts, which is only the second step to Provincials. We were third in Districts last year. Our goal this year was to make it to Provincials. As soon as we got there we were kind of happy, it didn’t really matter what happened there. We got winning and we decided that we should probably go all the way with this.”
