Janet Klebe’s crew rolling at B.C. Masters Women’s Curling Championships

The Chilliwackian has led her team to three blowout wins so far at the Nanaimo Curling Club.

Chilliwack’s Janet Klebe is off to a scorching hot start at the B.C. Masters Women’s Provincial Curling Championship.

Klebe’s rink is unbeaten through three matches at the Nanaimo Curling Club.

Joined by Kerri Miller (third), Jane Adam (second) and Laurie Shimizu (lead), Klebe bombed Marine Devlin’s Castlegar/Beaver Valley crew by a 14-2 count Tuesday afternoon, blowing the match open with a massive fourth end.

Klebe clung to a 3-2 lead through three ends, but she put eight on the board in the fourth to put the game well out of reach for Devlin.

Klebe’s crew turned in another dominant performance Tuesday night, posting a pair of four-point ends (first and fifth) in a 10-1 win over Nanaimo’s Marg Obee.

After getting a good night’s sleep, she returned to the ice Wednesday morning and dismantled Comox Valley’s Amber Dufour 9-2.

The 10 team tournament continues through Sunday, with the winner qualifying for the 2019 Canadian Masters Curling Championship, running April 1-7 at the Nutana Curling Club in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.


– Russ Knutson is off to a strong start at the B.C. Masters Men’s Provincial Curling Championship.

The Chilliwackian is curling third for Vic Shimizu’s rink in the eight-team tournament.

Shimizu is 2-0 so far with an 8-3 win over Vancouver’s Paul Dunkin Tuesday night followed by a 5-2 win over Bill Rafter (Tunnel Town/Delta Thistle/Vancouver/Marpole) Wednesday morning.
