WJCC Wednesday: Scotland M v Norway

In their penultimate round robin game at the World Junior Curling Championships in Perth's Dewar's Centre, Scotland faced Steffen Mellemsetter's Norwegians.

This game swung on one end, the sixth. With his last stone, John Penny went for a two count, got it wrong and gave up two against the head. That put the Scots down 5-2. They fought back and, one down in the tenth, made the Norwegian skip play a perfect hit for his win.

All the scores are here. Scotland has five wins and three losses, and play top of the table Sweden (7-1, w-l) in their final game tomorrow. Switzerland is in second place on 6-2. Canada and Norway have the same 5-3 record as the Scots.

Colin Dick was back as third this evening. Billy Morton and Colin Howden have been the stalwart front end.
