Jocelyn Peterman and her Red Deer crew were narrow losers in the A-event final of the Southern Alberta Curling Association junior women’s playdowns on Saturday, falling 7-5 to Nadine Chyz of Calgary at the Red Deer Curling Centre.

And that was as close as the Peterman foursome — consisting also of third Brittany Tran, second Rebecca Konschuh and lead Sarah More — got to qualifying for the junior provincials Dec. 27-31 in Grande Prairie.

From there, Peterman lost 8-6 to Kayla Ramstad of Airdrie in a Saturday evening B-event game, and in the C event on Sunday bounced back for a 6-1 win over Tawni Proctor of Calgary before falling 8-6 to Keely Brown of Calgary.

Jessie Scheidegger of Lethbridge claimed the B-event berth to provincials with a 9-2 thumping of Ramstad, whose team featured Jenna Lewis of Red Deer and Samantha Vincent of Delburne, and Kendra Nakagama of Lethbridge earned the final provincial berth with a 7-5 win over Brown in the C final.

Jenn Liner of Bentley is a member of the Nakagama foursome.

l In junior men’s play, Shane Parcels of Red Deer skipped his Calgary-based team to a 6-0 win over Oyen’s Riley Carroll in the B event final on Sunday.

The Parcels crew, also featuring Stephen Hood of Red Deer, lost in the semifinals of the A event, then rattled off respective 6-2 and 8-6 B-event wins over Tyler Nast of Lethbridge and Harrison Boss of Calgary prior to defeating Carroll.

Craig Bourgonje of Sundre and his supporting cast were the hard-luck victims of the weekend, falling 9-4 to Kevin Yablonski of Calgary in Saturday’s A-event final and then giving up a stolen point in each of the 10th and 11th ends in an 8-7 C-event final loss to Carroll.
