World Men's: Game 10 v Czech Republic

Scotland played the Czech Republic this morning at the World Men's Championship in Basel. Tom Brewster, Greg Drummond, Scott Andrews and Michael Goodfellow led Jiri Snitil's side 4-1 at the break, and 6-3 after seven. But the Czech team hit back with three in the eighth. Tom's side got their two in the ninth though. Faced with a double with his last stone in the tenth, Snitil only removed one. Scotland stole a single, and had the victory.

That win brings Scotland's tally to seven wins and three losses, equal with Norway, with one match, against the USA, to play. Canada top the table, without loss. New Zealand beat China this morning, and lie in fourth place, on six wins, equal with China and Sweden.
