Eve receives the World Curling Federation Frances Brodie Award from Royal Club Ladies’ Branch President Claire McLaren. The Frances Brodie Award, voted for by the players at the 2012 WWCC’s, is awarded to the player ‘who best exhibits sportsmanship and ability’. Congratulations Eve!
"It’s always extra-special to beat Canada in Canada, especially after a tough week, but I’m not going to lie… I’m totally gutted. I know we’ve just come off a win but we’re capable of medalling here and it didn’t come off this year. We struggled with the ice at the start of the week and we just didn’t get on top of things that we had to get on top of. We were getting better and better and if I’d made that draw against Sweden, who knows where we could have been. We’re a young team, our average age is 21 and to play in a Championship like this and get a lot of pressure from the media – it’s tough. It’s been great for us. Even though we haven’t qualified, all in all it’s been a huge learning curve and hopefully we can do bigger and better things. Each competition has been a stepping stone for us. We’ve had a great season – European champions, but it’s going to be hard to keep it up, but we know what we’re capable of as a team and hopefully we’ll get some good performances in the future."
A very good 9-3 win over Canada ends Scotland’s tournament. Despite a slow start, Eve, Anna, Vicki, and Claire won 4 of their last 5 (and should have beaten Sweden too!) while playing much better.
Scotland beat Italy 9-8 after an extra end. One more game for Eve and Co, against Canada tonight. Scotland can’t progress any further unfortunately.
"We had control for the whole game and I thought I’d played a pretty good last stone. I didn’t have many draws but I was confident with my weight, and the sweepers thought it was good weight too. When you’re in control for the whole game and it comes down to a missed shot like that, it makes the skip feel pretty bad."
Scotland lose 3-2 to Sweden w/ a tenth-end steal. 4-5 in the tournament, and pretty much out with only Italy and Canada to play today.
