Stone games talk about Switzerland
World Cup newcomers Marcel Koveler, Romano Mayer, Michael Brunner and Yannick Schwaler of CC Bern Zaringer finished the Round Robin with 6 wins and losses in sixth place, equal on points with South Korea and Germany.
Head-to-head confrontations between these three teams did not lead to a decision on the exact ratings, which is why the stone game coefficients that were made before each match had to be used. With this criterion, Switzerland was the best ahead of Germany and South Korea.
A second chance against Italy
In the quarter-finals, the Swiss team will meet Italy at 11 pm Swiss time on Saturday. In Round Robin, Switzerland had to admit defeat to its southern neighbor in a strange way. Due to a time violation, the final finish was not counted, Italy won 5:3.
Canada and Sweden, who finished the 12-match preliminary round in the top two places, have already qualified for the semi-finals. The Canadians are waiting for the winner of the match between Italy and Switzerland, Sweden will meet either Scotland or the United States.
