The junior boys curling team Anderson rink—Colin Anderson, Devin Anderson, Elliott Starchuk and Dawson Reid—curled their way into the bronze medal match of the BC Winter Games on Sunday.

They were playing against the Turney rink from Smithers, Zone 7. The Turney rink finished on top of their pool with a record of 3 and zero. The Anderson rink finished in second place in their pool standings.

The bronze medal game opened with the Anderson rink having the hammer in the first end. They immediately took advantage of that by taking three points. Single points were exchanged in the second third ends. The Turney rink picked up another single point in the fourth end. The score after four ends of play was 4 to 2 for the Anderson rink.

The fifth end saw strong play by the Anderson rink resulting in two more points for a four-point lead.

The Turney rink was forced to a single point in the sixth end.  The Anderson rink took back that point in the seventh end to be coming home in the final end still up by four.

The third, Devin Anderson, made a difficult double takeout to clinch the win and bronze medal for the Anderson rink.
