A 5-1 victory for Team Habkirk has the Coquitlam rink off to Prince George for the provincial curling championships.

The Coquitlam Curling Club foursome defeated the Langley Curling Club’s Team Tardi 5-1 to capture the zone 3 juvenile men’s curling championship on Sunday.

The three-day event was held at the Langley Curling Club.

The Habkirk rink scored two in the fourth end for the first points of the match and after Team Tardi scored one in the fifth end, the Coquitlam side scored two more in the sixth and one more in the seventh.

Team Tardi — made up of Tyler Tardi, Jordan Tardi, Nathan Tanner and Rhett Hildebrandt and coached by Paul Tardi — had won their first four matches, including a 6-5 win over the Habkirk rink.

But they stayed alive with a 7-6 win over the Tardi rink to force one more match and then won that one as well.

The Langley Curling Club had one other rink, Team Kryski at the event.

The group — made up of Scottie Kryski, Adam Beggs, Brandon Southern and Andrew Flitton and coached by Paul Tardi and Scott Kryski — went 1-2 in the round robin and then was eliminated by Team Habkirk 8-5.

Team Habkirk consisted of Kyle Habkirk, Nicholas Umbach, Ryan Harbrink and Kento Sato. They are coached by Debbie Carroll.

The juvenile women’s curling championships were also held at the Langley Curling Club with Team Hawes (Chilliwack Curling Club) defeating Team Hanni  (Mission Curling Club) 4-1.
