CC Arao won the World Cup semi-finals in Prince George against Sweden 7:5.
The Swiss team also won their 13th and most important match to date at the World Championships in Prince George, Canada: The team led by Skip Silvana Terenzoni won the semi-final against Sweden 7:5. CC Arau’s players are fighting for their third world title.
But against the Scandinavians, the Swiss had to shiver until the tenth end. After Sweden led 5-4 for the first time in the seventh finish, Switzerland responded at the next finish with a two-man crew. Alina Pätz showed no nerves and got her team back on track with a double take out to hit 6:5.
Swedish lost stone in the end
After writing the zero ending at the ninth end, the Swedes went to the final section with the advantage of the last stone. When everything pointed to an extra ending, Sweden’s Anna Haselburg made a fatal mistake: her last stone went too long, allowing the Swiss to steal a stone and win the semi-final 7-5.
