Teams Andrews and Craig crowned champs at 2022 BC Seniors

March 22, 2022

The 2022 BC Connect Hearing Seniors Championships brought Championship Curling to Chilliwack over the weekend, with 17 men’s teams and 10 women’s teams battling it out for this season’s senior crowns—as well as a ticket to the 2022 Curling Canada National Senior Championships next season.

The BC championships, held at the Chilliwack Curling Club, took place over 18 draws.

The 10 women’s teams competed in two pools of 5, in order to wither things down into a 6-team modified page playoff round.

The 17 Men’s teams competed in 3 pools of 5 or 6, playing 4 games each in the preliminary round. The top 8 teams overall then advanced to a Double Knockout Round that qualified 4 teams for the page playoff.

The men’s final pit the Team Craig who went (2-2) in the preliminary round, but undefeated in the Double Knockout Round, against Team Pierce, who went (4-0) in the preliminary round but were defeated by Team Monkman in the DKO Round meaning they would need to win the 3v4 game and semi-final in order to advance to the final, which they achieved.

The Senior Men’s final game saw BC’s reigning men’s champion, Brent Pierce, battling against the reigning BC Master champion, Wes Craig. It should be noted the 3 other members of each of these teams were not part of the 2022 Men’s or 2022 Masters Championship Rosters.

The first end saw Team Craig take a two-point lead and never look back, adding two points each in the third and fourth. By the time they added an insurance point in the 5th, it was pretty much all over for Pierce, who managed to get only two points on the board. In the end, Team Craig walked away BC champions, with the final score 7-2 with handshakes after the sixth end. This is Team Craig’s 3rd BC Senior Championship win in the past 4 seasons we have run events. Congratulations to them on this dynasty achievement.

In the women’s final, Teams Arsenault and Andrews was a more balanced match, which required as extra end to determine who would earn the hearts, the lead flip-flopped multiple times due to multi point steals late in the game. It was anyone’s game throughout, with things all tied up in the 9th end. Team Andrew managed to pull out all the stops in the ninth, however, with the winning point and a championship win of 9-7.

Apart form the finals, the event saw a number of great games. Here’s how the rest of the week went:
