Shoot out update

When the day ended last night, Cheryl, Susan, Lori and Shannon knew that it would be a long day if they wanted to qualify for the playoffs; in the C event, they weren't allow to lose and they needed to win 3 matches in a row to make it there.

The first match went really and all points were result of steals. Team Bernard 5 Team Kaufman 0.  Second match was a tighter fight and we had to wait till the very last rock to be sure they would win this one.    Team Bernard 6 Team Brown 5. In third match, everything was possible but inches made the different for the team from Russia. Team Sidorova 4 Team Bernard 2. Let's say they were "this" close to make but the tournament is over for Team Bernard.

Now 2 weeks off - well, off is a big word as they are going to practice - but next tournament is the Prestige Hotels and Resorts Classic in Vernon, Bristish Columbia.

Shoot Out Update

In Curling, even a 4-1 lead is sometimes not enough. It was the kind of game that could have gone either way but there was always an inch or two that made the difference and not on the favor of Team Bernard this time. Credit to Team Game who never gave up and finally managed to score enough points to defeat Team Bernard 6-4.

So, Team Bernard had to go against Team Kleibrink later on to stay alive in the tournament, as they now are in the C event and no more loss is affordable. Good for us, good for them, they made it. They played a strong game in defeated Kleibrink 7-2. Next game is Saturday at 12.30 pm (mt). LET’S GO GIRL!!!

Shoot Out Update

The tournament started pretty well with a 5-3 victory against Team Whyte. They started strong, leading 4-0 at some points, then it got a little complicated but they regrouped quick enough to record a first one.

Later on, they were going against Team Sonnenberg and as it is always against them, it was another tight fight that they finally lost 4-3. Team Bernard will now compete in the B event and will play against Team Game.
