A fabulous week of exceptional curling in Victoria saw Team Manitoba fall in the tie-breaker game vs Team Ontario. Tied without in the extra, Ryan’s draw failed to catch the curl, leaving Ontario victorious. Ontario made the final but fell to Team B.C. as the eventual national champs.
Thanks again to our sponsors, fans, parents and well wishers.
Next up, Team Ryan starts their run at a provincial Men’s championship at the Viterra beginning February 7th in Portage la Prairie.
Team Ryan won a hard fought 10 end victory against Team New Brunswick Tuesday night to finish the preliminary round undefeated at 6-0 in their Pool, and advance to the Championship round.
They will play a four game set against the qualifiers from the second pool, with the top three of eight teams advancing to the playoffs.
The team is thrilled to have carried the Buffalo this far, and are looking forward to representing Manitoba the rest of the way.

Barely eighteen hours after winning the Province in Juniors, Team Ryan got back on the ice to compete in the Winnipeg Regionals for a berth into the Viterra Men’s Curling Championship. Seems like there was plenty of gas left in the tank, as they won all three games on January 7th and qualified for one of the “A” side berths.
The Viterra Championship will be held Feb 8 – 12 in Portage la Prairie. This will be Team Ryan’s first experience attempting to win the provincial men’s title.
JT, Jacques, Graham, and Brendan finished their Provincial run with a thrilling 10 end victory against a very tough Team Calvert in the 2017 Canola Growers Provincial Junior Men’s Curling Championships on January 6th.

The boys are proud to be wearing the Buffalo and are excited to be representing Manitoba at the Canadian Junior Men’s Curling Championship, Jan 21-29 in Victoria, B.C.
A solid performance in their four games this weekend, except for the rare miss at the wrong time, led to Team Ryan failing to qualify in this weekend’s MCT event.
On an up note, the team’s journey continues in Dauphin next weekend where Team Ryan has qualified for the MCT Tour Championship.
Following the Christmas break, it will be on to the Canola Provincial Junior Championship.
After going undefeated in their pool, and defeating a tough Freeman (Virden) team in the quarters, Team Ryan got off to a shaky start in their semi vs Team Oryniak, giving up three in the first. Both teams played very well the rest of the game, but points for Team Ryan were hard to come by.
Next stop, the Thistle Integrity Stakes, an MCT Men’s event in early December.
After last week’s stumble, Team Ryan bounced back at this week’s MJCT Event in Petersfield, the Kyle Flett Memorial. Team Ryan went undefeated in their Pool, before falling to the Friesen team in the semi-final.
The bonspiel trail takes Team Ryan to the Sun Life Invitational next week in Brandon.
After going undefeated and winning their last three bonspiels, the sport of curling showed once again that what you did yesterday has no bearing on what you do today.
Team Ryan stumbled this weekend at Rossmere, posting just a single win against three losses, and failing to qualify.
This event adds a little humility to the team’s arsenal, and they now look forward to righting the ship at next week’s MJCT event in Petersfield, the Kyle Flett Memorial.
Following victories at the last two MJCT events, Team Ryan went undefeated, winning the “A” side berth versus a tough Team Smith.
With a Provincial spot now assured, Team Ryan will take a week off and then re-focus on continued improvement, starting at the Ken Kurbis MCT event in early November.
Building on last week’s performance, Team Ryan continued their winning ways despite the absence of Skip JT Ryan for the entire event.
Skipped by Third, Jacques Gauthier and with Fifth Kyle Allenby, the team went undefeated through the round robin and playoffs.
On to next week’s Early Bird Berth Bonspiel, also in Stonewall.
