Fussen Reports 20: In the final

Kelly Wood, Jackie Lockhart, Lorna Vevers and Lindsay Wood won their way to the final of the Le Gruyere European Curling Championship beating Denmark in the playoff game.

Mistakes by Denmark allowed Scotland to get ahead after just three end but the Danes came back to tie the score after five ends.

Scotland got ahead again by two in end six, then the Danes wobbled again. Scotland stole one in the seven when the Danish skip's attempted double didn't work, they stole again in end eight. Scotland lay four when the Danish skip came to play her last stone, she left Scotland counting one.

Denmark got two back in the ninth but Scotland ran them out of stones in the final end for the win 7/5.

They meet Sweden in tomorrow's final.
