Game five for Scotland's women at the European Curling Championships and they need a win here to stay in contention. In this game they met Denmark, on the same record two wins and two losses.
Scotland had the last stone but Denmark stole four shots over the opening three ends. Scotland then came on to a game scoring six shots over ends four, five, six and seven. Denmark got one back in end eight. In the ninth Kelly Wood faced a difficult shot, a triple raise, she made the shot to score three to take the score to 9/5 in Scotland's favour.
That was too much for Denmark, they conceded.
Sweden lead the table undefeated on five wins from five games, Germany who lost to Italy tonight are on three wins along with Italy, who beat Germany, Russia, Scotland and Switzerland who had a tough game against the Czech Republic.
Tomorrow the Scots meet Italy and the Netherlands.
