Comments from the Skip
As you know, Cheryl Bernard and Co. fought hard but in vain. They didn't qualify for the Provincial and that was played in the very last end. Opponent skip was solid enough and did what she had to do to close it out and prevent Team Bernard to steal. Here some comments of Cheryl right after this heartbreaking loss.
“My calendar is wide open, so that’s going to be strange. Somewhere hot maybe . . . that might be good. It’s been a long time since we haven’t been in provincials so, yeah, I’m sure it’ll sink in and it’ll be even more disappointing. It’s tough. Our team has been working really hard this year and for sure should have got to provincials. But it wasn’t in the cards.”
“It wasn’t enough. They played really well. It was a really good game, really fun to play, just not so fun to lose. We battled out there and it’s unfortunate when it doesn’t go your way.”
“It was funny. It was hit-and-miss in the games. I had a game I struggled at and some team games weren’t as strong as we needed to have. At this level here, Alberta is so tough and you just have to be on your ‘A’ game. It wasn’t ‘A’ all the time. I guess we learn from it. There are a couple of spiels left and hope that we can do something and get ourselves into a pre-trials spot and work toward that.”
That says much about how Team Bernard members feel.
