The team led by Skip Yannick Schwaller suffered their third defeat in their eighth round match at the World Curling Championship in Las Vegas.
After the last 4 victories, the successful run of the Swiss hairballs at the World Championships in Las Vegas has been stopped for the time being. Marcel Koveler, Romano Mayer, Michael Brunner and skip Yannick Schaller had to bend 4:7 against the US. For Switzerland, this is the third defeat in the eighth preliminary round match.
2 stolen stones in a row
Switzerland had good trump cards on hand for a fifth win. On a balanced showdown, after 8 ends, it was 4:5 Schwaller and Co’s view with the last stone right, the Swiss could have put themselves in a good starting position, but things went differently.
With Skip Korey Dropkin, the Americans managed to steal a stone in both the 9th and 10th sides and win the match. Thanks to this win, the United States now holds the same record as Switzerland and is tied for fourth.
The guys from CC Bern-Zähringer will indeed return to Las Vegas on Thursday. At 6 pm Swiss time, Switzerland will compete with Italy. Right after that at 11:00 PM, the South Koreans are waiting for Schaller’s team.
