ECCC 2015 Day 2 News – Part 2

Mens Team – 4pm – Ireland 7 Bulgaria 3

Pretty it wasn’t but a wins a wins after game 3 of the Irish Men’s European C league.

A stubborn Bulgarian team were the opposition this time around and like the last game, it was a cagey start with the first half of the game consisting of swapped singles.

The second half started with the Bulgarians with the hammer and they missed a chance to blank, ending up taking a single.

In the sixth, the Irish team were really well setup but two excellent shots by the Bulgarian skip meant that the Irish team had to pull off a good double to blank.

In the seventh the Bulgarian team started well and were looking good but a couple of excellent draws by the Irish put pressure again on the Bulgarian skip. This time he was unable to pull off the necessary shots and the Irish team took a three, to go up two going into the last end.

The last end was kept relatively clean without too much drama and the Irish finished out the match 7-3.

Next up France at 8pm tonight.
