Morris rolling early at BC tankard

John Morris and Jim Cotter are rolling along entering day two of the BC Men's Curling Championships taking place in Vancouver.

The Kelowna/Vernon rink won a pair of games to open up the championship Wednesday to move into the "A" semi-final of the modified triple knockout event.

Morris opened with a 9-3 win over Mark Longworth representing Vernon/Salmon Arm Curling clubs and followed that with an 8-1 five end pounding of Jason Montgomery of Duncan.

The Okanagan foursome take to the ice Thursday morning against Brent Pierce of New Westminster in one of two "A" side semi finals.

The winner advances to the "A" final Thursday night.

The road has been a little more bumpy for Kelowna's Jeff Richard. The local skip slipped down to the "B" side after dropping his opener 7-3 to Scott DeCap of Kamloops.

Richard bounced back later in the day with an 8-4 win over Ken McCardle of New Westminster.

He takes to the ice again Thursday morning against Montgomery.

The winner of the "A" and "B" events and two qualifiers from the last chance "C: event advance to the weekend's playoff round.

The championship game is slated for Sunday afternoon with the winner representing BC at the Briar in Kamloops next month.
