Mixed Day For Scots On Third Day At World Champs

Posted on

It was a day of mixed results for Team Muirhead on the third day of action at the CPT World Curling Championships in Beijing.

Scotland claimed their third win of the tournament in a dominant performance which saw them beat their Danish opponents 7-2. In direct contrast the Scottish rink then faced an on-form Swedish team and lost out 3-7. 

Team coach Glenn Howard said: “It was a very solid game against Denmark where we applied constant pressure resulting in steals against a Danish side who have been struggling most of the week.

“We played well against Sweden but they just played better, especially their skip,” he added.

“We threw a lot at them to try and score but they dealt with the challenge and just had more accuracy in terms of consistent shot execution.”

The Scots share fourth place in the current standings on three wins and two losses and have another two match day tomorrow when they will meet Korea before taking on so far unbeaten Canada.

Beijing has been blighted by smog today and players have been wearing masks to and from the venue as a precaution.
