There were wins for Hungary, Canada, Scotland, Finland, Germany and Wales in the eighth session at the World Mixed Curling Championship this evening.

Hungary beat neighbours Austria 7-4, while Canada beat Israel 5-3 to remain undefeated at the end of day two.

Scotland edged past Japan in a low scoring game that ended 4-2 and Finland beat Latvia 8-5. Germany also won their match, 4-2, against Spain meaning they have three wins from three.

The result that stood out the most in this session was Wales’ 9-3 defeat of Norway. After five ends the teams were level, 3-3, but then scoring five points in the sixth end was the turning point for the Group B team.

“We were pleased with the way we played. We were keen to get the hammer in the even ends, so to draw a blank in the fifth was good, but then both teams were keen to score in the sixth. This meant it was a big deciding end and scoring that five really sealed the game for us,” said Wales skip Adrian Meikle.
