Canada vs. Norway - End 10

btw, thanks to Birkel at ACC Basketblog for the link.

Canada needed to steal in order to win. That's not likely against Norway.

Canada set up guards; Norway missed the second tick shot attempt. This miss could really affect the outcome.... let's see what happens.
Pfeiffer drew to the top 8, and Norway's peel sent another rock into the rings by mistake. Pfeiffer set up another guard; Norway peeled.
Ferbey guarded; Norway peeled..... geez, this is beginning to sound like the old-time matches of the 1980s before the free-guard rule.

Nedohin guarded with his first stone, leaving Trulsen a difficult peel. He made it, and took out a secondary Canada stone as well.

Nedohin tried a bump back of Canada's rock to the button, leaving Norway with either an in-off or an attempt at a double. Norway missed the double! Canada steals! Trulsen wobbled again on the hack.

Norway 6, Canada 7; Canada wins and will be in the semi-finals tomorrow.

Wow! What an exciting game!

A minute ago, assuming a better shot from Norway, I was going to say that whatever the outcome the last several shots had all been brilliant - and nobody canask more in a sport. The bad luck is that Norway was slightly off on the last shot. But what a finish!
