The team is made up of Cloverdale’s Tyler Tardi (skip) and Jordan Tardi (second) as well as Burnaby’s Sterling Middleton (third) and Langley’s Nicholas Meister (lead).

The rink went 5-2 during preliminary play to finish tied for second and then beat the McCrady rink (Royal City) 7-5 to advance to the championship final.
