Eve wins in Mississauga

Congratulations to Eve Muirhead, Jackie Lockhart, Kelly Wood and Lorna Vevers who won the Three Nations Cup in Ontario this weekend! The results are all here. Team GB beat Stefanie Lawton in the final, having only lost the one game along the way, against Binyu Wang's world champions.

There's a great article about the girls here, and George Karrys has another interview with them all, including Karen, here (look for the VIDEOS button, top right of screen).

David Murdoch, Ewan MacDonald, Graeme Connal and Euan Byers did not fare so well in the Grey Power World Cup. They stole the last end in their final game against John Shuster's USA side to give them their only win in six games. Scores can be found here.

Eve's brother Glen can also be pleased with a good performance at the Meyers Norris Penny Prairie Classic. Muirhead, with Greg Drummond, Thomas Sloan and Michael Goodfellow, lost their first game in the A Road, before winning four straight in B against top teams, before losing two more and exiting the event.

In Oslo at the first of the European Junior Curling Tour events, all five Scottish teams made it through to the quarterfinals of the competitions. Only Colin Dick, Blair Fraser, Lindsay Gray and Thomas Pendreigh made it further, but lost out in the semifinal. The linescores are here.
