Deane Horning and his Corvus Construction rink of third Brittney Horbul, second Kevin Nesbitt and lead Nicole Beetstra proved their regular season dominance was no fluke, drubbing an over-matched Ken Fines Team in the A final. Corvus struck big with their last rock advantages, putting up three and four enders while holding Team Fines to one deuce and a few singles on their way to a 12-4 win and the 2015-16 Kootenay Savings Super League Championship.
The B Final saw Team Beauchamp, with Brian Lemoel skipping for a vacationing Russ, against Team Myron Nichol go down to the last rock. Team Beauchamp started quick with a large four-ender in the first, but Myron responded with a three, and had a 7-5 lead after a steal of two in the sixth. Lemoel tied the game in the seventh, then facing three buried Nichol stones, made a Russ-like shot with his last in the eighth, angle raising his own stone perfectly to the button for a steal of one.
Team Beauchamp stole another in the ninth, then was able to hold Nichol to only a single in the 10th for an exciting 9-8 victory.
Team Justin Umpherville were taking on Team Heather Nichol in one of the C Consolation games, and just like every game that night, started strong with a four ender. Skip Heather made a nice draw for her single in two, then made two more perfect draws in the third, leading to a steal of three and a tie game. Umpherville bounced right back with his own three, then scored again in the fifth, seventh and eighth ends, on their way to a hand shaking 13-5 win.
In the other C Consolation, Team Bill van Yzerloo were on fire against an inconsistent Team Darrin Albo. Following the theme of the night, van Yzerloo started with a huge six ender, then stole the third, fourth, and fifth ends, cruising to an easy 9-1 win.
Best of luck to all the Super League curlers playing in the BC playdowns, and a special thank you to Times Contributor Richard Faunt.
