The championship game will pit Team Peper (7-2-1), lead by first year skip – Lon Peper, vs. Team Marshall (7-2-1), lead by veteran skip – Bill Marshall.

Team Peper started the season with 6 wins and one tie to clinch their division early, before finishing the season with a pair of losses and a final win leading into this weeks championship game.
The two championship teams did not meet during the regular season, and promises to be an exciting game.
