Small, second on Team Robillard, edged Matthew McCrady in the final of the AMJ Campbell B.C. Mixed Curling Championship Sunday in Kelowna.

Team Robillard, which includes Small, Maple Ridge skip Sebastian Robillard, third Karla Thompson and lead Amanda Guido, both of Kamloops, defeated McCrady 6-4 in the championship final.

Team Robillard posted a 3-1 record in round-robin action, before knocking off Chris Baier 10-5 in a playoff draw to nail down A2 qualifier status.

However, the team lost 7-3 to McCrady in the 1 vs. 2 Page playoff game, forcing Team Robillard to play Miles Craig in the semi-final.

Team Robillard had no problems with the Craig rink, posting a 9-3 victory to advance to Sunday’s final.
