VCC Championship

Thursday Open League teams dominated in the  annual VCC Championship, April 8-10. Two Thursday Open League teams made the championship final with the Richard Brower team defeating the Chris Gomes team. Up one with hammer in the final end, the Brower team clogged up the four-foot to prevent the Gomes team from stealing to tie the game. The Gomes team (third Patrick Prade, second Marty Perry, lead Brian Cole) won the Thursday Open League title this season. Brower narrowly defeated Keith Switzer from the Thursday Open League in an extra-end semi-final that needed a laser measure to decide the score in the eighth end.

 

Brock Tully team lost the first game of the championship in a Thursday Open League matchup against the Brower team, but then won four straight games to win the B event final. Down three with hammer, playing the final end against Clayton Bergquist's PRCL team (Steeve Lepage, Adam Tumilson, Duncan McGillivray, Peter Greenwell), the Tully team scored four to grab the win.

 

There were 32 teams in the championship with the majority of VCC leagues represented. Four wild card teams were drawn to complete the field.
