KAMLOOPS — The Karla Thompson rink from Kamloops has won the B.C. Women's Curling championship, defeating Kelowna's Kelly Scott 11-3 in the final.

On Saturday Thompson overcame a 7-0 deficit after three ends to stun Scott 11-10 in the one-two page playoff.

In the final Thompson took control early, scoring two with the hammer in the first end.

Ahead 4-1 after three Thompson had a steal of two in the fourth, and then cracked it wide open with four in the sixth --- holding Scott to singles in the second, fifth and seventh ends.

The Thompson rink will play in a Canadian Scotties pre-qualifying round with the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavet, based on last year finish by B.C.

One rink from the pre-qualifying will advance to the Scotties main draw.
