CURLING

The Herald - Sport - - FORMULA ONE -

Perth’s Eve Muir­head was left to rue a piv­otal missed shot as she once again lost out to her Rus­sian neme­sis Anna Si­dorova in the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship fi­nal in Es­b­jerg, Den­mark, writes Lorin McDougall.

The Moscow skip beat the Scot in the 2012 fi­nal and also in last sea­son’s bronze medal play-off at the World Cham­pi­onships.

Muir­head had a chance to save the game in the eighth end, but the 2011 cham­pion said: “I was a cen­time­tre away from mak­ing the shot, and that was a big mo­ment which will haunt me for a long time. We didn’t want sil­ver and felt we were good enough to get gold, so we’re gut­ted.”
