World Mixed Doubles: Report 3

Leslie Ingram-Brown reports that Scotland's Paul Stevenson and Louise Soutar lost at the last stone to China's Xue Li and Dejia Zou at the World Mixed Doubles in Saint Paul yesterday. The Scots took a two in the seventh to lead 6-5 into the final end. A freeze was essential to keep the game alive. That was made at an angle. Xue Li threw the strike with accuracy and the shooter made perfect contact. When the dust had settled China lay the two shots required for victory.

Later Paul and Louise lost their evening's game against Czech Republic's Hana Cechova and Radek Zdarsky 7-5. The Scots have France, Spain and Austria to play.
