Langley curler Craig Lepine is going for the gold this afternoon.

The skip and the rest of Team BC men’s team is guaranteed a medal after securing a chance to play for gold at the 2018 Coastland Engineering and Surveying Canadian Masters Curling Championship today in Cloverdale.

The 26-team competition wraps up with the men going for gold at 2 p.m. today (Sunday) at the Cloverdale Curling Club.

Lepine is accompanied on the ice by third Neil Houston, second Craig McLeod, lead Kevin Jeannotte, and coach Karen Lepine (Craig’s wife). Lepines curl out of the Langley Curling Centre.

The tournament featured 14 men’s and 12 women’s 60-plus curling teams from across Canada.

While Team BC didn’t have much time to rest before the rink suited up for the masters, they have played strong with eight wins and two losses heading into the title match.

The local men’s team earned the chance to advance to the gold medal matchup after defeating another BC team yesterday. They beat Kelowa’s Team Koffski by 7-2.
