Scots face nail-biter

- Sports

Curl Aberdeen’s Mag­gie Wil­son and her team are cling­ing on by their fin­ger­nails after a heavy de­feat at the Red Deer Clas­sic in Al­berta.

Two wins out of three edged Eilidh Yeats, Jen­nifer Mar­shall, Re­becca Mor­ri­son and Wil­son closer to a quar­ter-fi­nal spot, but Ed­mon­ton’s dou­ble world ju­nior cham­pion Kelsey Rocque proved too strong for the Scots.

Rocque soon led 5-0 and com­pleted a 7-1 vic­tory after only five ends. The Scots must now beat an­other lo­cal curler, Melissa Pierce, to stay in the com­pe­ti­tion.
