THE Irish senior women qualified out of group A in third place after beating the Czech Republic 8-4 in the early morning session here in Geneva.
A two and then a stolen two in the first two ends gave them a big advantage over their opponents and they cemented their superiority with a three in the fourth end. The second half of the game didn’t go to plan as the Czechs did have a double take out opportunity for a three in the seventh, but only got one. With a four shot cushion it was a case of clearing any opposition stones out until we ran the Czechs out of ammunition in the last end.
We will now head into the ice rink at 8pm tonight to watch the Irish men play the same country, with a qualification spot in their group at stake. Play offs are at 1pm tomorrow against…….who knows!
