First game playing on the world tour in Canada ended with a win – 5-2 vs Rob Fowler. Both teams struggled a little bit, but we felt we had the upper hand early in the game. A few misses from us early on had them getting away from our grip. There should have been a force of 1 in both first and third end, but both were blanked together. In the fourth we had a chance to lie 2 before their last shot, but our rock hit a straight spot and they got the deuce. We got back quickly and played a solid fifth end to tie the game at 2. In the sixth end we got a stolen point after a really good end from our side. The second to last end we were just putting up guards after having frozen shot stone right on the button. That got us another steal. Our last end wasn’t our best, but Oskar got a quite easy double to bring the game home.
Next game will be up against Mike McEwen – second overall in the order of merit standings – at 4.30pm local time.
See you around!!
