Norway's Kristin Skaslien on their win over Hungary
“The first game is always like… feel the ice, feel how it works. The ice is perfect!
We got off to a very good start and the Hungarians had to chase. We tried to keep it open, keep it simple, it was a pretty good game.
I was very happy with our performance. We had a really good feeling out there and we all played quite well.”
Scotland turn the game around
Scotland scored five points in three ends to go up 9-6 after nine ends of play against Turkey.
Silvana Tirinzoni on their win over Latvia
“Every win counts on the way to the play-offs. We didn’t make it last year, so that’s a good start!
With a new front end, this is totally different, with new characters and new energy.
As far as the result, it’s similarly successful, but the team is different. They’re playing amazingly, actually.”
