Ireland 9 – France 3

The Irish Senior Men’s team, skipped by Peter Wilson, had a comfortable victory over France today in their penultimate round robin game in the World Senior Curling Championships in Karlstad, Sweden.

A three in the first end saw them on their way and a three in the seventh end saw the French call it a day.

Coach Gordon said: ” For this game Neil replace Ross at second

1st End – Good start to end, Pete and sweepers draw for 3.
2nd End -This turned into a hitting end.  The opposition skip, Pascal Adam,  missed his strikes and he was forced to draw against 2.  He took his 1.     3-1
3rd End – Ireland were a wee bit unfortunate with hit and rolls in this end. Pete had a good hit for 2 to finish  a good end. 5-1
4th End – Good end for Ireland leaving the French skip to draw against 4 for the single. 5-2
5th End – There was a bit of controversy in this end,  with a front guard  touched and replaced. Ireland were lying shot with Pete attempting a tap back for 2 but the stone just pulled up short and the boys had to settle for the 1. 6-2
6th End – Busy head that boiled down to Pascal Adam drawing with his last stone for a 2 and failing.   6.3
7th End –  The French skip was left to hit against 3 with last stone, he picked out 1, but left  Pete a straightforward draw for a 3.  Handshakes with the score 9-3 to Ireland.
Boys played a lot better!”

Their final round robin game is tomorrow, Thursday 21th April, at 12 noon against Japan.
