Semifinals in Kitzbuehel

The semifinals of the European Mixed Curling Championship saw a classic matchup between youth and experience. Hotshot Swede Niklas Edin and his youthful team lined up against Rainer Schopp's Germans, who eliminated Scotland yesterday. It was no contest, the Swedes only scored in one end and conceded after six when they were 7-1 down!

In the other game, the Czech Republic were always in charge against the Russians. Jiri Snitil's side led 8-3 after six and the result was not in doubt.

All the results and standings are here.

Can they be stopped?
