Fullerton defeated Amanda MacLean’s Cornwall-Maple Leaf rink 7-4 in the junior women’s single-game final with a thrilling come-from-behind victory.

Joining the junior women at the nationals for the first time will be Alex Matters’ Charlottetown-based rink.

The 16-year-old Matters led his team to two straight victories over Sam Ramsay’s rink, also from Charlottetown, to sweep the best-of-three final, 7-6 and 5-3.

The M&M Meat Shops Canadian Juniors will be held in Napanee, Ont., Feb. 4 to 12.

The viewing galleries at the curling club were jam-packed to watch the two provincial finals, which started at 10 a.m.
