Just how well the Scottish girls did in the Draw Shot Challenge yesterday has been revealed. They were the second best team, behind Germany, and ahead of all the others on 117.1 cm.
In today's second game, Eve Murhead, Kerry Barr, Vicki Adams and Sarah Macintyre were up against the USA, skipped by Nina Spatola. They came out firing on all cylinders and took a four in the first end, cashing in on opposition errors. That really was the game. Pickups marred an interesting ninth end, but the Scots stole a single and went into the final end four shots ahead. They ran the US out of stones.
