Eve Muirhead’s Scottish team finished off their round-robin programme at the Ford World Women’s Championship in Lethbridge, Canada, with two victories – an extra end 9-8 win over Italy, followed by a 9-3 demolition of their Canadian hosts, which silenced the packed house of local fans, writes Mike Haggerty.
However, it was too little too late as results elsewhere meant the Scots’ six wins overall were not enough for them to go on to the Play-off stages.
Muirhead said: “It’s always special to beat Canada in Canada, especially after a tough week, but I’m not going to lie . . . I’m totally gutted. I know we’ve just come off a win but were capable of medalling and it didn’t come off. We know what we are capable of as a team and, hopefully, we can put in some good performances in the future.”
