IRELAND 3 DENMARK 8
Ireland lost their last 16 game this morning in the World Mixed Championships in Aberdeen and bow out of the competition after a terrific run.
Despite Denmark forcing a steal of one point in the first end, the sides went into the break level at 3-3. However, in the second half Denmark scored a single point in the fifth end, before the pressure they had been applying began to take effect, allowing them to steal two points in the sixth and seventh ends an take the win.
Danish skip, Tobias Thune talked about their performance, saying “I think that in this game we played quite well as a unit. I had some hard shots, but I also had a few easy shots, just playing guards because our front end had played so well.”
Denmark will now play Canada in this evening’s quarter-final.
The Irish team have done themselves proud this week and have gelled as a team that hopefully will get even better, and further, in the future.
Well done John, Ailsa, Craig, Niamh and coach David!
