BC teenagers make playoffs at Canadian Mixed Doubles Trials

Despite being the youngest curlers in the competition, the BC team of Tyler Tardi and Dezaray Hawes made quite an impact at the 2015 Canadian Mixed Doubles Trials this weekend.

The pair, who are from Surrey and Anmore, were one of only three provincial teams to make the playoff stage before eventually losing to multiple World Champion Glenn Howard and his daughter Carly.

Tardi and Hawes, who are aged 16 and 18 respectively, did not have an ideal start to the trials as they lost their first two games. They quickly bounced back to win four in a row including victories against PEI’s Brier skip Adam Casey and the 2014 champions Kim and Wayne Tuck.

Despite conceding their final pool game against Quebec, Tardi and Hawes secured second in Pool B to set up the playoff game against the Howard rink which they lost 4-8.

It was the second year that the youngsters, who won the provincial title in February, had represented BC at the Canadian Mixed Doubles Trials. When they first competed at the event in 2013 they did not progress out of their pool, so this year’s top 12 ranking was an improvement.

It has been a busy season for the pair as they both competed at the Canada Winter Games last month where Tardi skipped his team to a bronze medal, and Hawes was also silver medallist at the 2015 Tim Hortons BC Junior Curling Championships.
