Ohm that was soooo close. A topsy-turvy game against France went to an extra end after the the teams were tied at eight all after eight ends. The Irish team tried to get a shot buried behind cover put time and time again it was a foot heavy. But the French left the door open for us and John’s last stone draw got a feather off a front stone to roll onto the top of the French shot, then agonisingly just roll off it again to leave the French with the game.
We played well especially in the second half after a team talk from coach PJ Wilson. Keeping me on my in turn for the first stone was the key as I can bury stones on that side.
The ice was noticeably heavier on one side and remembering, or forgetting, to put a bit more running on the stones down that side got us into bother when losing the second three.
We are both in good fettle for the games ahead. Christine has travelled down to join john’s ever growing supporters club – his sister and her family have been cheering us on and were left with shredded nerves at the end of that one.
Two games tomorrow to look forward too – gosh this is fun!
