CURL­ING

The Herald - Herald Sport - - Update -

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.”
