Curlers Sterling Middleton and Emily Bowles are the 2022 Victoria Mixed Doubles Cashspiel champions.
Middleton, who grew up in Fort St. John and Bowles from North Delta, went a perfect 5-0 at the triple knockout event.
Now bothing living in the provincial capital, the pair beat another Victoria team, Alex Horvath and Sasha Wilson 9-6 in the championship Sunday, advancing to the final after a very narrow 7-6, eighth-end semi-final decision over New Westminster's Patrick Prade and Diane Gushulak.
Horvath, you may know, is Sterling's teammate on the B.C.-based Jacques Gauthier rink.
Like the semi-final, the final proved to be a see-saw battle for Middleton and Bowles, but unlike the game before, it needed an extra end to determine a winner.
After jumping out to a 4-0 edge, the duo saw their lead disappear in two short ends.
Tied 6-6 after eight, Middleton and Bowles were able to lie three in the extra end to seal the win - each taking home $550 in prize money.
