Hockley scores second provincial berth

Already locked in to the senior men's provincials, Dale Hockley now takes aim at a masters men's title in Creston.

Chilliwack’s Dale Hockley has secured his spot at a second provincial curling tournament.

One week after locking down a berth in the senior men’s provincials in Courtenay, Hockley has punched his ticket to the masters men’s event.

The 2014 BC Masters Curling Championships take place March 6-9 at the Creston Curling Club.

Hockley will curl third for Ken Watson’s rink, representing the Vancouver Curling Club.

Their crew qualified with a B event win at last weekend’s Lower Mainland playdowns in Mission.

After bowing out in the second round of the A event, Watson’s rink went 4-0 on the B side, beating Royal City’s Rick Pugue, 6-5, in the final.

Two other Chilliwack teams were in the mix. The Doug Marshall rink (with locals Glen For and Gerry Wawryk) advanced to the third round of the C event before falling 6-4 to Garth Moore’s Golden Ears Winter Club foursome.

The Earl Werk rink (with Rob Wiens, Fred Snooks and Glen Street) made it to the second round of the C event before falling 6-5 to Royal City’s Hiroshi Hasebe.
