Deputan downed in Lower Mainland playdowns

Chilliwack's Lisa Deputan rink struggled at the Port Moody Curling Club, losing three of four matches.

Chilliwack’s Lisa Deputan rink had a tough time at last weekend’s senior womens’ Lower Mainland playdown.

The event was held Friday through Sunday at the Port Moody Curling Club.

Deputan, representing the Chilliwack Curling Club, started Friday morning with a deflating 9-1 loss to Diane Foster (Peace Arch/Nanaimo).

That knocked Deputan out of the A bracket, and she moved into the B bracket Saturday morning.

Deputan faced the Royal City Curling Club’s Kathy Smiley, falling 7-4.

Relegated to the C bracket, Deputan rebounded with a 12-2 demolition of Shelley Birston’s Vancouver Curling Club rink Saturday afternoon.

But the Sunday morning semi-final saw Deputan leading Foster 4-2 through six ends, only to lose 5-4.

Foster got two in the seventh and the decisive score in the eighth, knocking Deputan out.

Other members of her team were lead Jane Adams, second Laura Wigham, third Janet Klebe and coach Doug Marshall.
