A local curling team did not return home empty-handed from their trip back east.

Representing B.C. at the Optimist International U18 curling championships in Mississauga, Ont. from April 4-8, the juvenile men’s curling team upset pre-tournament favourite Team Ontario in the bronze medal match.

Team B.C. scored one point in the eighth and final end to win 6-5.

The B.C. rink — which curls out of the Langley Curling Club and is made up of Tyler Tardi, Jordan Tardi, Nicholas Meister and Zachary Umbach plus coach Paul Tardi — went 4-1 in the round robin but came up one point short in their semifinal match against Team Quebec, losing 4-3.

Team B.C.’s lone round robin loss came in the first draw when they fell 5-2 to Team Manitoba, the eventual gold medal winners.
