Mens Team – 8am – Ireland 8 Romania 5
Ireland dispatched Romania early today in their second match of the European C division in Champéry.
The game started with cagey tit for tat singles in the first half of the game before Ireland started to become a bit more adventurous leading to a three in the sixth. However, having thought that the match was then won, the team managed to totally switch off and gave back an immediate soft three in the seventh to raise the overall tension and the blood pressure of the Irish coach.
A nervy last end followed with a lot of stones in play and chances for both teams. Ultimately, though the game was over before the Irish skip had to play his final stone. A three to Ireland to close out the game 8-5 with the next match against Bulgaria in a few hours time.
