Romania have won their first game at the World Mixed Curling Championship 2015, beating Slovakia 6-3.
Skip Atilla Gall’s team won the match after stealing points in four of the seven ends.
Ireland were also pleased with a win over France, when skip Johnjo Kenny drew to the button with his last stone. This delivery secured a 7-6 win.
Kenny said: “We put ourselves under a lot of pressure going into that last end. There was a bit of miscommunication between us, our lead put up a guard instead of a strike. But, we got there in the end and that’s the main thing.
“The ice conditions here are great and we’re all really enjoying playing in this venue. So, to win here is great.

Hosts Switzerland continued to go unbeaten after they beat Kazakhstan 12-2 in six ends.
