Van Osch rink second in B.C.

Curling skip Kalia Van Osch and her teammates were perfect all the way through to the gold-medal match, but they were finally defeated in the last few ends.

Kalia, Carley Sandwith, Marika Van Osch and Ashley Sanderson finished second at Curl B.C.’s junior women’s championship in Coquitlam, losing Sunday’s final to Corryn Brown of Kamloops, 7-4.

The Van Osch rink was 7-0 going into the game and had beaten Brown in the tournament opener, but the final was tougher. The Nanaimo Curling Centre team tied it in the seventh end and stole one in the eighth to go up 4-3 before Brown counted two in the ninth and stole two more in the 10th to ice the win.
