Jim Cotter defeated Brent Pierce to win the 2012 Canadian Direct Insurance BC Men’s Curling Championship Sunday night in Parksville.


Jim Cotter is all smiles after winning the 2012 Canadian Direct Insurance BC Men’s Curling Championship presented by DundeeWealth & Save on Foods on Sunday night in Parksville.

After a back and forth final game against Brent Pierce, Cotter was left watching as Pierce attempted an angle-raise takeout of Cotter’s loan stone for the victory. The sweepers were called on it early, but it wasn’t enough to hold the line and Pierce’s stone over-curled leaving Cotter with the steal and a 7-5 win.

Jim Cotter, Kevin Folk, Tyrel Griffith, Rick Sawatsky and Coach Rick Folk now advance to the Tim Hortons Brier in Saskatoon, March 3-11.
