Mens Team – 8am – Ireland 8 Belarus 7
The Irish men’s team squeaked a win against Belarus this morning in the European C league.
Despite dominating the vast majority of the game, a soft three out of nowhere in the seventh gave the Belarusians a one shot lead going into the last.
So onto a nervy last end which developed badly for the Irish. At the last stone the Belarusians had one stone on the button with inline Irish stones two feet in front and one foot behind. Fortunately, a quarter of the Belarusian’s red stone was showing and that was all the Irish skip needed to pick the stone off the button and take the victory by one shot. Ireland win by 8-7.
Next Mens games are against Luxembourg at 4pm and Slovenia at 8pm today.
