A confident Alan Smith played a delicate tap back around a guard to count two in the opening end of the Scotland v Slovakia game at the European Mixed Curling Championship at Kitzbuehel this evening. A stolen one followed.
In the fourth, double takeouts from Mundell and Howard got the Scots out of potential trouble, and Smith hit for a single. At the halfway stage, Scotland were 4-1 up.
They stole a single at the fifth, and two more at the sixth. The teams played on, but it was really all over. Handshakes were proffered after seven ends with the score 7-3 in Scotland's favour.
