Scotland beat Norway in their second round game at the World Men's Curling Championship in Basel, Switzerland, this evening. After fighting back from the loss of a big end early in the game, Team Brewster was tied 6-6 in the ninth, with the hammer. With lots of shots in play, Thomas Ulsrud was too heavy with his first, and could not get hidden with his last. This left Tom a hit to count five, and the game was over.
