Marsh rink makes most of second chance to capture Kootenay Dominion Curling Club Championship
Barry Marsh is not known for taking the easy route to glory.
No this Nelson skip always likes to have the plot thicken before tasting victory as he did Sunday at the Heritage City Curling Club.
Marsh, third John Rampone, second Cameron Shaw and lead Al May needed an extra game before capturing the Kootenay Dominion Curling Club Championship with an 11-3 victory over Ivor Larsen of Kimberley.
The Nelson rink now advances to represent the Kootenay Zone at the Dominion Curling Club Championship next month in Richmond.
After dominating the A event, winning the title in easy fashion, Marsh hit a bump in the road when Larsen put together a big end en route to a 10-4 win in the B Final.
Having another chance at the Bavarian City rink, Marsh made the most of it as he blasted Larsen in six ends.
The Dominion Curling Club Championship is designed to provide club curlers with the opportunity of a lifetime.
Teams from both the East and West Kootenays flocked to Nelson to compete in the two-day event.
The road to a Canadian Championship started at the beginning of the curling season at the club level.
The Kootenay Championship is the next step before the respective winners advance to the provincial tournament April 17-21 in Richmond.
On the women’s side of the draw, Desiree Schmidt of Fruitvale won the right to represent the Kootenays in Richmond.
