Ireland 5 Finland 8
Ireland’s mixed doubles team, John Wilson and Louise Kerr, lost their first game in the world championships here in Norway after leading by three shots.
After playing themselves into the lead, helped greatly by a three in the fourth end, the duo ran into trouble in the sixth and seventh ends when missed shots cost them four points. Finland’s Tomi Rantamaeki played a superb draw in behind cover to put Ireland in Trouble in the last end to chalk up another steal of two for Finland.
The team play Kazakhstan at 8am tomorrow morning.
