Marshall’s men dominant at Lower Mainland playdown

Doug Marshall and his rink were unstoppable, going 4-0 to secure a berth in next month's BC Senior Men's Championship.

Chilliwack’s Doug Marshall rink ran the table at last weekend’s Lower Mainland senior men’s qualifier, securing a spot in the BC Senior Men’s Championship.

Marshall’s crew went 4-0, winning the A event at the Abbotsford Curling Club.

Marshall was joined by Ken Britz (second), Kevin Britz (third) and Darren Jarvis (lead). The quartet came from behind to win their opening match, scoring two in the sixth and one in the seventh end to top Darcy Heisler’s Tunnel Town Curling Club rink 6-4.

Marshall’s next two games were routs, a 7-2 dismantling of Stu Harris (Cloverdale) followed by a 7-0 drubbing of Mike Freeman (Mission).

Mike Weir (not that one) and his Delta Thistle Curling Club rink stood between Marshall and the title Saturday night.

The locals led 5-4 into the seventh end, tacked on one for insurance and escaped with a 6-4 decision.

Marshall will look to keep rolling at the BC Senior Men’s Championship, running Feb. 15-21 in Richmond.
