2019 B.C. Men’s and Women’s Championships: Draw 7 results

Wark and Cotter win to stay atop of Women’s and Men’s tourneys.

Team Wark added another win to their tournament-best record of 4-1 in Draw 7 action this morning.

The Abbotsford-based squad which includes Skip Sarah Wark, Kristen Pilote (Third), Carley Sandwith (Second), Michelle Dunn (Lead) and alternate Jen Rusnell beat Kamloops/ Royal City’s Team Brown 8-5.

Also winning in Women’s play was Vancouver’s Team Hudyma, who scored three in the final two ends to pull ahead of Vernon’s Team Slattery and win by a score of 7-5.

Skip Lindsay Hudyma, whose team is now 2-2, says the competition has been tough at the tournament.

“It wasn’t an easy game but we just had to keep doing what we were doing, stay us and stay solid.”

The first five ends were pretty tight she says.

“It could have gone either way and then the last five we got a little more aggressive and then the turning point was our last shot… we had to angle it in just perfect and it was really hard for [Kim Slattery] to take it out.

Nanaimo/ Parksville/ Vancouver’s Team Van Osch continued their slide with a 6-5 loss to Royal City’s Team Gushulak.

Last year’s provincial Women’s champs have had plenty of close games, with all their losses decided by two points or less but have been unable to finish strong.

Their record now stands at 1-4, while Team Gushulak stands at 2-2.

Rounding out the women’s action was a back-and-forth affair between Kamloops’ Team Thompson and Kelowna/ Victoria/ Prince George’s Team Richards.

It took 11 ends for Team Richards to finally clinch a 6-5 victory.

“We made the right shot at the right time,” says skip Brette Richards when asked to describe what went well.

“That’s curling. It’s not about how many [shots] you make. It’s the one you make when you need it.”

Team Richards is now in second place with a record of 3-1, while Team Thompson is 2-2.

The sole Men’s match in Draw 7 saw Kelowna/ Vernon’s Team Cotter score two in the ninth to defeat Victoria’s Team Montgomery 7-5.

Jim Cotter’s side improves to 3-o in the tourney so far, while Montgomery drops their records to 3-1.
