canadian-curling-associationMarch 4, 2013, Sochi, Russia, (ISN) - Corryn Brown and Team Canada are breathing easier today after notching their first win at the World Junior Curling Championships in Sochi, Russia.

Brown and her team from Kamloops, B.C. — third Erin Pincott, Samantha Fisher, Sydney Fraser, with alternate Cathlia Ward and coach Ken Brown – remained patient against the Czech Republic's Iveta Janatova, stealing one point in the seventh, and scoring four in the ninth end to put the game away, 9-4.

"It wasn't the funnest start to the week, for sure," said Brown about her team's slow start in the round robin. "But this makes it better. It's definitely nice to get at least one win at the Worlds under our belts. But we'll hopefully get a couple more."

"The girls had their game back today," said Canadian Team Leader Andrea Ronneback. "They all had good control of both draw and hit weight and that enabled them to control the game. They were patient from the start and waited for opportunities."

After seven draws, Canada sits 1-4 in the standings, tied with Switzerland's Michelle Gribi and Sweden's Sara McManus. Scotland's Hannah Fleming (6-0) remains the only undefeated team on the women's side, with Denmark's Stephanie Risdal Nielsen and Japan's Sayaka Yoshimura (both at 4-1) close behind.

In men's action in the evening draw at the Ice Cube Curling Center in Sochi, Winnipeg's Matt Dunstone and his team — third Colton Lott, second Daniel Grant, lead Brendan MacCuish, alternate Josh Barry and coach Scott Grant – had control from the start against Italy's Amos Mosaner.

Dunstone scored deuces with hammer in the first and fourth ends, then stole one in the seventh for a 5-1 lead. Mosaner answered with a deuce in the ninth. Facing two Italian counters in the 10th, Dunstone made the take-out, allowing a steal of one, but earning the 5-4 win.

The Canadian men now have a 4-2 record, tied for second place in the standings with Eirik Mjoen of Norway, Evgeny Arkhipov of Russia, and Patric Mabergs of Sweden, and well within reach of the leader, Kyle Smith of Scotland (5-1).

On Tuesday, Team Canada's women face Switzerland's Michelle Gribi (1-4) at 5 a.m. (EST), and both men and women will be on the ice against teams from the U.S. at 10 a.m. (EST): Brown will face Miranda Solem (3-3) and Dunstone will play Korey Dropkin (3-3).
