Canada vs. Norway - End 7

Wouldn't you like to break the neck of that loud-mouth who rants about breaking the neck of some beer bottle? It's unfortunate that obnoxious ads seem to sell products so well.

Plan B for Norway's lead as they took out a Canadian rock and rolled behind the guard, but Pfeiffer removed their rock. Norway's 3rd got a nice hit and roll to lie three. A tough shot by Ferbey caught something on the ice. Norway was sitting three and called a time out.

Norway removed a guard and block a route for a Canuck freeze. Ferbey drew through the port, but just a bit heavy, leaving Trulsen an attempt to plug the hole. Nedohin countered with a raise take-out, not quite getting the double.

Trulsen's last shot over-curled, but still left a difficult draw for Nedohin. Ferbey gave him about 5 feet of ice. Beautiful call, beautiful throw, beautiful sweeping. Canada scores 1, but still trails.

Norway 5, Canada 4; Norway has the hammer.

I liked that line - "There are guys you do not want leave a draw to the 4-foot - and this is one of them. It reflects the tremendous competitiveness of international curling now.
Now he did not actually make it so maybe we need to gather more than anecdotal data.
But Norway is still well ahead.
