Ouch, that hurts! This tournament had a strange flavor; either they won easily or fought hard to lose at the finish line. This morning loss, hurts! To tell the truth, after 9 ends, that was almost a done deal for Eyamie, but Bernard bounced back to stay alive scoring 3 to level the match 7-7. You might have thought that the opponent was knocked down, and it was a chance for Team Bernard to steal the final end, but it just didn’t happen.
So, you all know that there isn’t another chance for team Bernard to qualify for the Provincials. That is not how it works in Alberta. Any other time, losing wouldn’t have been THAT bad, even if it’s always a pain, but with no way to do the provincials, there is no fight for the Scotties, meaning no more points and no chance to catch up to have one of those 3 remaining spots to go straight to the Olympic trial.
Is the Olympic dream over? Not yet. There are still chances, but there is a lot of work to do because there is a pretrial to win. Everything is still possible and when there is hope, there is chances.
Stay tuned for the latest on Team Bernard Members.
