Hot and Cold:
Team Canada Can't Sustain the Sharpness
In draw 5, as with draw 3, Canada got off to a great start and seemed control of the game, this time against Scotland. But then Canada gave up steals of 1 in the 6th, 2 in the 7th, and 1 more in the 8th and ended up losing 7 - 5.
This is the second time in a row that Canada has played this way. The only question in each draw is whether the sharp team will show up -- the one we saw in the first five ends? or the not-so-good team -- the one we saw in the second five ends?
But before we panic, remember that Menard and Team Canada played this way in the Brier, too.
