World Mixed Doubles Qualification Session 2: DEN-WAL

Session 2 Denmark vs Wales #wmdqe2019

A good pre-game practice and last stone draw saw Wales win the hammer in the first end. They were unfortunate not to capitalize and only scored a 1. Denmark came back hard in the second and with two very good shots and made a 3.

The next 3 ends were tight affairs but Wales closed the gap with a steal in the fifth end bringing the score to 4 : 3. Denmark spotting the danger and called their power play and were fortunate to score a 3.

The seventh end presented Wales with a tricky situation and called a time-out. The coach welcomed the opportunity to move from the frozen bench in the (not unusual) Baltic Sheet E. The Wales defense against the Danish attack did not hold and the Danes came out on top.

A good start to the tournament with Wales showing confidence going into their next game against Ukraine tomorrow at 12:30.
