Cloverdale curler skips B.C. champions to a third-place finish in Stratford, Ontario

Tyler Tardi takes a shot at the Canadian Junior Curling Championship last week. Tardi skipped Team BC to a bronze medal.

Tyler Tardi of Cloverdale skipped Team BC to a bronze medal at the Canadian Junior Curling Championship in Stratford, Ontario last week.

Tardi was joined on the team by brother Jordan, who played second, and his father, coach Paul Tardi. Other members of the team were third Daniel Wenzek and lead Nick Meister.

Team BC was a perfect 7-0 (win-loss) late in the round robin portion of the men’s tournament, but lost three in a row to place third in the standings. They then fell 8-3 to eventual champion Manitoba, skipped by Matt Dunstone, in Saturday’s semifinal.

“It’s been 10 years or something like that since B.C. got on the podium in men’s (Tyrel Griffiths won silver in 2006),” said Tyler Tardi.

“So I’ve got no sad thoughts, I’m pretty proud of the boys. They played great all week. Matt can make some pretty great shots. It’s hard to stop a team like that, but you have to have respect for it.”

Tardi, 17, won the B.C. Junior Men’s championship Jan. 3 in Kamloops, going 7-0 in the round robin before topping Matthew McCrady 8-3 in the championship game.
