There were three rinks eliminations this morning at the 2019 Meridian Canadian Open.

One of those was 20-year-old Rylan Kleiter from Saskatoon. The young curler had the crowd on his side throughout the tournament, but it wasn’t enough after a 5-2 defeat.

Even though the foursome couldn’t take the win, he said they are taking tons of valuable experience home to Saskatoon.

“We learnt a lot,” he said. “Definitely how the older teams carry themselves. Really, just where we need to be to be at the next level.”

Next up for the rink is another home competition. They will play in the Canadian Juniors in Prince Albert on January 17.

Kleiter said its always great to play in Saskatchewan.

“It was unbelievable, the fans were unbelievable,” he said.

Elsewhere on the ice, Kerri Einarson eliminated Elena Stern 7-2, while Chelsea Carey stayed alive, but the same couldn’t be said about her counterpart, Isabella Wrana, who fell 9-5.

Next up at 11:30, North Battleford will have their eyes on Robyn Silvernagle as she tries to punch her ticket to the quarters against Alina Tirinzoni. Casey Scheidegger battles Nina Roth, and Regina based rink Matt Dunstone will match up against Winnipeg’s Jason Gunnlaugson.
