Team Harrison prevails in Port Alberni men’s bonspiel

Annual bonspiel drew 20 teams from out of town

The Alberni Valley Curling Club hosted its annual men’s bonspiel last weekend, drawing 20 teams from around the Island and the Lower Mainland to Port Alberni.

The final in the A Event, sponsored by Coastal Community Private Wealth Group, featured Team Harrison from White Rock versus Team Acorn from Victoria. The score after five ends was tied 3-3, reflecting a close, defensive game. Team Acorn stole single points in ends six and seven. Without last rock, Team Harrison scored three in the final end to win overall by a score of 6-5.

The Quality Foods B Event was won by the Brian Scorer Team from Nanaimo over the Brandon Sawyer Team from Comox in an extra end. The Alberni District Co-Op C Event was won by Team Cote from Comox over the local Don Seabrook Team from Port Alberni, and the Shoppers Drug Mart Clinic Pharmacy D Event featured the Branch and Simpson teams, both from Comox, with Team Branch prevailing.

The Alberni Valley Curling Club’s final event of the season will be the Aurora Roofing Mixed Bonspiel from March 15-17. For more information call the club at 250 723 3111.
