Curlers compete for bonspiel bragging rights over the weekend

Team Witty and Team Hamilton, both from 100 Mile House, faced off in the A final Sunday afternoon

It was all Pink at the Rink during the 100 Mile Curling Club’s women’s bonspiel last weekend.

Eleven teams - from 100 Mile House, Clearwater, Williams Lake and Ashcroft/Clinton - competed for money and bragging rights in the three-day event, which marked the end of the curling season. Every team played at least three games until only six were left for the finals Sunday.

In the A division, Team Witty beat Team Hamilton - both 100 Mile teams - taking home $600.

“The Witty team came to play and scored five in the second end,” said Maria Hamilton, the skip for the Hamilton team, noting the Witty contingent was ahead by 6-0 at the end of the second end. Despite fighting hard, Team Hamilton was unable to gain an advantage and the game ended in the seventh.

In the B final, 100 Mile’s Team Ney had to fight hard for their $400 prize winnings against Team Koster, comprised of members from Ashcroft and Clinton. The two teams were neck-in-neck in the eighth end with Ney taking the win with a score of 10-9.

In the C division, Clearwater’s Team Hadley came in ahead of Team Peterson by three points, taking home $240.
