ENG girls beat Denmark

The England girls recorded a great win against Denmark this morning with skip Hetty Garnier not missing a shot and being scored at 94%. In a similar manner to their first game against Hungary the early ends were very open (apart from the one where Hetty had to hit against 4 to take the shot - the game could have ended there if she had missed) and it was 1-1 at the half time break. Immediately after the break both skips started putting up guards and it was the Danish skip who had the first save to make when she hit against 3 to take her shot.

For the first time this week the girls scored a 2 at the 6th end and when the Danish skip then failed to blank the 7th end and scored a single it was deja vu from the game against Hungary yesterday - 3-3 with the hammer playing the last end. Once again we had trouble clearing guards but a mistake by the Danish skip with her first stone gave Hetty access to the shot. An exchange of hits and she had the same shot to win the game - it was played perfectly and England scored 2 and celebrated a famous victory against arch rivals from previous EJCCs.

Now the boys are on against Slovenia - a new country to the championships and the first meeting between the two countries at any level.This is one they really must win if they want to have any chance of progressing further.
