Day 5: Roundup

Men

Session 17
In Group A, there was a top-of-the-table clash between Canada and Scotland.

Not surprisingly the lead changed hands throughout the game and it went to an extra end with the score tied at 5-5.

In that end Canada's skip Alan O'Leary delivered a nose-hit with his last stone to score the one point needed for the 6-5 win that kept his unbeaten record intact, keeps his team at the top of the rankings, and guarantees his team top spot in the section.

In the same Group, the Czech Republic beat Kazakhstan by 10-3 to record their third win.

Session 18
In this session all of the teams in Group B were in action.

Denmark maintained their unbeaten position at the top of the Group with an 8-5 win over Hungary.

Poul-Erik Nielsen's Danes opened with a score of four points in the first end and never looked back.

New Zealand stayed right behind Denmark, beating Russia by 6-2 for their fourth win, one behind the Danes.

Norway and Sweden had the closest game of the session and it was only when they scored three points in the seventh end and followed that up with a single point steal in the eighth that Andres Westerberg and his Swedish team could claim their win, by 8-6.

This was a third win so far for Sweden and it keeps their play-off hopes alive.

England recorded their second win of the week with a 12-1 defeat of Turkey in just six ends.

Session 19
Australia were challenging USA for top spot in Group C when they met in this session, and it was USA who won, by 8-5, scoring four points in the sixth end on the way - a result that guarantees Lyle Seig's American team the number one position in the Group.

Sitting behind these two in Group C were Finland and Germany, and with their 7-5 win in the game between them in this session, Finland recorded their fourth win to join Australia in joint second place.

Switzerland became the third team to share second place in the Group when they beat France by 9-0.

In the fourth Group C game in this session, Slovakia gained their second win of the week, beating Poland by 9-4, scoring three points in each of the third and seventh ends.

Session 20

Two games in Group A took place during this session. Ireland faced Italy and started strongly, scoring three in the first end, two in the second and a single in the third end. A further score of four points in the fifth end concluded their scoring on the way to a six-end 10-2 win that keeps them in the qualifying hunt.

The other Group A game was between Latvia and Japan and Japan emerged as 7-5 victors.

Two games in Group B also featured in this session, with Sweden playing Russia and winning by 6-4 to keep their play-off hopes alive. New Zealand's 4-2 win over Norway kept them in second place in this Group, one win behind unbeaten leaders Denmark, who sat this session out.

Women

Session 17
USA and Canada both had perfect records when they met in this session and it was USA who came out on top when, in the last end, Canada's skip Lois Fowler hit and rolled just too far with her last stone of the eighth end to give USA a steal of one point and a 6-5 win.

USA now stand alone at the top of Group B with four wins and no losses.

In this Group England beat New Zealand by 10-6, thanks to a score of six in the fifth end and Italy had a 10-1 win over Slovakia, taking an 8-0 lead into the fourth end break on the way.

Session 18
There was one women's game in Wednesday's session 18, and the Czech Republic emerged as 10-2 winners over Russia, finishing off their win with a steal of three points in the seventh end.

This result keeps the Czechs well in contention for a play-off slot.

Session 20

Japan played Switzerland in the only women's game in this session and Switzerland scored three points in the second end and four points in the sixth end as they went on to win by 9-7.
