Qualifying Round: Switzerland 6, Scotland 4

Scotland were unfortunate to lose 6-4 to Switzerland in the Qualifying round of the World Mixed Curling Championship. This was to be a really close run affair with the teams trading the lead on a number of occasions throughout. The Scots looked in a good shape as they moved into a 4-3 lead in the sixth end but Switzerland hit right back with a deuce of their own to swing the game back in their favour in the seventh. Scotland still had the hammer though going into the eighth end and with Scotland lying one, Cameron Bryce, with the hammer, opted for a take out on a Swiss stone to try and take this game.  Unfortunately though it came up a bit wide and ended up promoting the Swiss stone, which resulted in a single for Switzerland and handing them the game with a final score of 6-4.

Session 23: Austria , Scotland

Scotland beat Austria 6-3 in their last game of the round-robin stages of the World Mixed Curling Championship, giving them six wins from seven games. With USA beating Brazil 7-2, and having beaten Scotland in this morning’s game, they secured the top spot in Section D giving them a place in the Quarter-Finals. Scotland secured second place in the section, which means that they will be going through to the Qualifying round and will now face off against the team which finishes in third position in Section C.
Following the final round-robin games in Section C, Scotland are set to take on Switzerland, who finished third in the section, at 13:00 (GMT) on Friday 18th September.

Session 21: Scotland 3, USA 9

Scotland suffered their first defeat in this morning’s Session 21 game of the World Mixed Curling Championship. It was to be a close fought game in the early stages with the teams trading the lead a number of times. Scotland were 3-2 ahead going into the fourth end break, before USA secured a deuce to move into a 4-3 lead in the fifth end. The decisive blow came in the sixth end when Scotland gave up a score of four to allow USA to move into an 8-3 lead. This was followed by an American steal of one in the seventh which resulted in the Scots conceding the game.
With Hungary going down to a 7-6 defeat to Estonia in their last game of the round-robin stages, this now means that the USA and Scotland move into joint top spot in the table. However Scotland’s loss to USA means that the Scots now need a win against Austria and for the Americans to lose against Brazil, in their last games of the round-robin stages, to secure the first place position and their automatic space in the Quarter-Final stages. Whatever the outcome though, Scotland has already done enough to guarantee them a place in the Qualifying round. Should Scotland finish second in the group, they will face the third placed team in Section C.
Scotland will play Austria in this afternoon’s Session 23 game at 15:00 (GMT).

Session 19: Hungary 3, Scotland 11

Scotland beat top of the table Hungary in Session 19 of the World Mixed Curling Championship.
After Hungary took a two in the first end, Scotland continued in the same style that they have played all week and built a considerable lead in the early stages, moving 10-2 ahead by the fourth end. Hungary did try to find a way back into this game, but after only managed to take a single in the fifth and Scotland grabbing a single of their own in the sixth, Hungary decided to offer handshakes and the game finished 11-3 in six ends.

This result now puts Scotland top of Section D and also guarantees them a place in the Qualifying stage, although a first place spot would still cement their place in the Quarter Finals. With only two games left to play in the round robin its everything to play for going into tomorrow’s games. Scotland will take on third placed USA in tomorrow morning’s game which begins at 7:00 (GMT). The afternoon game will see them face off against Austria at 15:00 (GMT)
