Team Broad are 2013 VCC Club Champions

The season-ending VCC Championships have come to a close and Team Broad from the Pacific Rim Curling League are the 2013 Club Champions.

Twenty-four teams started the week, representing the Club's 19 leagues and bringing together the Club's diverse membership. On Thursday evening, the final four were left standing in the A and B finals.

In the A final, Team Broad captured the crown of VCC Club Champions by defeating Team Faa (Thursday Open) 6-5. The game was a back and forth affair, with great shot making by both teams and the final result hinged on the game's final shot.

Meanwhile, the B final featured Team Hill (Shamrock) and Team Chan (High School). Team Chan started the game strong building a 5-1 lead after three ends, but Team Hill clawed their way back so it was 7-4 after seven ends. Team Chan eventually ran Team Hill out of rocks in the final end to become the VCC 2013 Club Championship B Winners.

Pictured on the left, Team Chan - who finished 4th at this year's BC High School Provincials - are (L to R): skip Matt Chan, third Kevin Chen, second Benny Jiang and lead John Dinh.
