Day Four Update At World Champs

Posted on

It was a tough day for the Scots on the fourth day of action at the CPT World Championships when they lost out to South Korea and unbeaten Canada in Beijing today.

British Curling Performance Director Graeme Thompson said, “It was hard day at the rink today as two losses are never enjoyable.

“For the Korea game we could not find a way to stop their hammer efficiency of scoring two’s and after their steal at the first we were always playing catch up.

“Canada’s rink skipped by Rachel Homan is a team we know well. They are playing well right now and our shot execution wasn’t strong enough to match them.

“We will re-group overnight and set out in the morning on the next game against the hosts China. We need to get back to the good starts from our early games.

“We are in the middle group of teams in the table. We want to emerge into the top end and the play offs by the end of the round robin and we need to get back on the winning trail in order to achieve that,” Thompson noted.

Canada are top of the standings on seven wins, Sweden is in second place with six wins and one loss, whilst four teams share third place on four wins and three losses. Scotland, Korea and Germany have three wins and four losses each and are competing for play-off places.

Results session ten: Korea 10 – 6 Scotland
Results session eleven: Canada 8 - 2 Scotland
