Team Muirhead Loses Semi in Players Championship

This may be an old photo of Kelly Wood (it's from the World Women's Championship in Paisley in 2005) but it is one of my favourites. I use it here to say well done to Eve Muirhead, Kelly, Lorna Vevers and Annie Laird who reached the semifinals of the GP Car and Home Players' Championship in Grande Prairie.

They lost the semi to Jennifer Jones, who went on to beat Rachel Homan in the final. Our girls only lost one other game in the event, that too against the Jones rink. The competition was the last time we'll be seeing this version of Team Muirhead together. I'm sure you will join me in wishing Kelly all the best as she embarks on a new life in Canada.

Niklas Edin and Kevin Martin are in the final of the men's event. Find what happens here.
