Team Scotland runners up in Richmond

Posted on Monday, November 24, 2014 at 10:37am

Team Scotland started the Canadian Open in Richmond, BC against Team Russia and were not really in it from the off and were defeated. They then put together an 8 game winning streak that included a victory in a closely contested affair the 2014 Paralympic Gold Medalists, Team Canada. Team Scotland qualified for the gold medal game and a rematch against the 2014 Paralympic Silver medalists, Team Russia. For the second time this week Team Scotland came up just short losing 8-7. Considering this is their first competition together since Sochi, a runners up place for Team Scotland was a good result and they can build on this heading to Ottawa for the Cathy Kerr Bonspiel from November 28-30.
