Yamada rink at ousted from men's provincials
Brent Yamada posted an 0-3 record and was eliminated from the Canadian Direct Insurance B.C. Men’s Curling Championship, which wraps up on Sunday, Feb. 10.
Yamada fell to 0-1 at the tournament with an 11-5 loss to Sean Geall’s Royal City Curling Club rink on Wednesday, Feb. 6.
The Kamloops quartet fell 10-4 to Tom Buchy of Kimberley later on Wednesday.
On Thursday, Feb. 7, Yamada lost 6-5 to Dean Joanisse of Abbotsford.
The winner of the provincial championship will represent B.C. at the Tim Hortons Brier in Edmonton in March.
Yamada failed to qualify for provincials at a zone competition in Kelowna in December, but was one of three qualifiers at an open competition held in January in Maple Ridge.
The Yamada quartet is comprised of skip Brent, third Corey Sauer, second Doug Murdoch and lead Lance Yamada.
The Kamloops Curling Club rink qualified for the 2011 provincials in Vernon, where a 4-4 round-robin record was good enough to reach the playoffs.
