Marshall takes mixed title

Chilliwack’s Doug Marshall rink demolished the field at the B.C. Mixed Curling Championships, and will now represent B.C. in the quest for a national title.

The provincial bonspiel was held in Prince Rupert last week, and Marshall’s crew put together a record of 6-1. Marshall was joined by lead Janet Klebe, second Darren Jarvis and third Lisa Deputan.

The locals started off last Tuesday morning with an 11-2 dismantling of the Michael Dahms rink from Prince George followed by a 7-6 win over the Tom Buchy rink from Kimberly.

Marshall’s only loss came at the hands of Penticton’s Jared St. John rink, an 8-3 setback Wednesday morning. But the locals bounced back Wednesday night, swatting Duncan’s Wes Craig rink 9-3.

Thursday brought convincing wins over Ken McHargue (Sparwood, 9-3) and  Dylan Somerton (Peace Arch, 12-4).

Marshall bounced Langley’s Craig Lepine 11-6 Friday morning. In the final, Marshall got a triple take-out to score five en-route to an 11-3 triumph.  The Canadian  Championships take place in Sudbury in November.
