Feltham dominates Super Cash League

The Parksville Chrysler Super Cash Curling league played its final game on Valentine’s Day with a skins format that put $100 on the line for each game.

Bruce Feltham and his team of Doug Shearer, Ken Stobbs and Garry Nolan, who dominated the league all year, ended up as overall champions, never moving out of the top spot.

Feltham’s quartet will be one of the teams to watch in masters championship curling. They have already qualified for the BC Masters Provincials and for the Guy Phillips Masters.

Lynne Noble and her crew of third Penny Shantz, second Colleen Robson and lead Daryl Robson finished second overall. Team Noble won the Senior Provincial Ladies Championship in Enderby over the weekend to defend its senior women’s provincial crown and earned a trip to Stratford, Ont., at the end of March for the Canadian championship. A year ago, Team Noble finished third at nationals to bring home bronze medals.

The placings for third to 10th spots were close. This year’s prize money totaled $4,000. Here is the final standings:

Bruce Feltham $660, Lynne Noble $465, Carey Sulz $425, Leslie Shearer $395, Don Marshall $385, Kesa Van Osch $380, Rod Stewart $375, Tom Freeman $315, Rick Dunn $300, and Jackson Marshall $275.

The Super Cash League is a competitive league that assists teams in preparing zone, provincial and Canadian championships.

Team Van Osch of Nanaimo, consisting of Kesa Van Osch and her sisters, Kalia and Marika, and Amy Gibson, won the BC Ladies Championship and went on to represent the province at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts Canadian Championship in Penticton last month. They advanced to the playoffs before Jennifer Jones and her Manitoba team went on to win. Jones will represent Canada at the World Championship next month.

The league’s curlers thank league sponsor Parksville Chrysler for its support to all the teams and the league.
