On two wins from four Team Murdoch badly needed to win this game against home country Sweden also on two wins. The team came out firing on all cylinders blanking the first end and then Murdoch had a take out for a big three at the second. Sweden came back with two in the third when Murdoch's tap up went wrong.
But it was Scotland's game for the remaining ends, a two in the fourth took the score to 5/2. The Scots lay two in the five, Sweden tried a draw but caught on the front counter, Scotland stole two for a five shot lead. Sweden managed a single in the sixth, Scotland got that back in the seventh. Sweden conceded after taking one in the eighth, final score 8/4 to Scotland.
Standings after five games, Switzerland on four, they lost to France, Germany and Norway also on four, France, Scotland on three.
