Kleibrink Wins The Schmirler

Shannon Kleibrink has defeated Krista McCarville, 7-6, to win the CUETS Scmirler Curling Classic in Regina.

Kleibrink, down 3-2 without last rock after 5 ends, stole 3 in the 6th and another in the 7th to take a 6-3 lead. McCarville scored 3 in the 8th to force an extra end, but Kleibrink scored the last point of the day and took home the big bucks!

The final was a rematch of the Pool A game in which McCarville handed Kleibrink her only loss of the event, but she who wins last wins best. Kleibrink's record for the event was 7-1; McCarville finished at 7-3.

Congratulations to Shannon Kleibrink and her teammates, Amy Nixon, Bronwen Webster and Chelsey Bell. Congrats also to Krista McCarville and her team of Tara George, Kari MacLean-Kraft and Lorraine Lang.

The Kleibrink team will be in Vernon for the Twin Anchors Houseboat Cashspiel next weekend, and the following week we'll see them again, in Calgary, at the Trail Appliances Curling Classic.

Until next time ... good curling!
