ECC2008: Report 8 Sco women v Switzerland

Scotland on two wins met Switzerland on one win in draw four, both countries needed a win here, it's getting pretty close to the halfway point and a number of teams are fighting to climb the table.

This was nearly a game of two halves, Switzerland had the best of the first half up by four shots after six ends. Who knows what happened, perhaps Scotland woke up, in the seventh Kelly Wood had a draw for two, end eight Scotland lay one, Mirjam Ott for Switzerland had an open tap back for a three score and probably the game, she was too heavy and missed, Scotland stole one to trail by one.

In the ninth Switzerland faced two Scottish stones, Ott drew for one, the lead was now two. Switzerland didn't give Scotland any chances in the final end, Ott with her last stone removed a lonely Scottish counter, Scotland couldn't win or tie the game so shook hands, Switzerland scored one for the game 7/4.

Sweden lead with four wins, Germany has three and six teams, Italy, Netherlands, Scotland, Denmark, Russia and Switzerland are tied on two. Tonight Scotland meet Denmark.
