Women 2 v Denmark

Leslie reports from Moscow:

"Lene Nielsen took only six ends to deal a crushing defeat on Eve Muirhead in this evening's game at the 2011 Le Gruyere European Championships here in Moscow 12-2. The scoreline below shows it all.

It would be unfair not to listen to Eve's three comments after this defeat: firstly she admitted she did not know where to put the brush so different was the ice from her morning game against Norway. Secondly, on her own admittance, her team had beean lightly lucky in the opening round win, and thirdly this was her worst ever defeat in curling.

But at the same time she was entirely positive about the approach for the rest of the games and whilst this is one to forget the team will still be up for the challenge in the coming rounds."

Scores: Denmark 12 Scotland 2, Russia 7 Italy 5, Germany 7 Switzerland 5 (Extra End), Sweden 12 Czech Republic 0, Latvia 8 Norway 6.
