Hope’s Doug Marshall, and his Chilliwack rink of Lisa Deputan, Darren Jarvis and Janet Klebe captured the 2011 Williams Moving & Storage BC Mixed Curling Championship title in Prince Rupert this past weekend.

Marshall scored singles in the first four ends to lead 4-0. The teams traded deuces in the 5th and 6th ends, and Craig took a single in the 7th. With a 3 point lead and hammer advantage, Marshall made a triple take-out to score five points in the 8th end and seal the victory by a final score of 11-3.

Kimberley’s Tom Buchy team advanced to the semi-final by defeating Sparwood’s Ken McHargue 7-6 in a tie-breaker, but was defeated by Craig 9-4.
