Canada Down 2-1 vs. The U.S. after 5 Ends

When the round robin game between these two teams began at the Ford Worlds, it looked as if Kelly Scott was really hot, as she had three counters in the first end, forcing Debbie McCormick to draw for one. But then Team Canada cooled off, gave up a steal of one, and struggled.

In the third end, however, Scott pulled off a raise take-out that was very well executed, to blank that end before being forced to take one in the fourth.

With the score 2-1 for the U.S. after five, the U.S. is clearly out-curling Canada. Surprisingly, even though the score is low, the game has been fascinating.

Scott is not out of this game by any stretch, but she needs to strategize better and shoot better if she hopes to win.
