2017 IBBA World Championships - Day 5

Today was a good day for us. We played Israel in mixed pairs this morning. It was a very challenging game for both teams. The wind was very strong and was blowing diagonally across the green. We lost the game 16 - 3 in 11 ends but Israel scored only 1 point in 8 of those ends which shows how close the heads were. Unfortunately, they also scored a 5 and a 3 to spoil a good game.

Gus got some revenge in his singles game in the afternoon. The wind was not as strong in the afternoon so both players had better control over their weight. Israel led for most of the early part of the game until the 14th end when Gus tied the score at 9. However, he gave up a 4 on the next end to fall behind again. The Israeli player was leading 15 - 11 with time limit of 3.5 hours approaching. Gus dug down to score 2 points on each of the last 2 ends to tie the score at 15 after 20 ends. The gentleman from Israel has been competing in this tournament since 1993 so Gus is extremely happy and proud that he can compete with players with a lot more experience than he has.

Our B 3 pair won a close game today against Scotland winning 16 - 15 on the last end.

Ms Kwan from Edmonton lost her match with South Africa.

Saturday morning will feature mixed pairs play in the morning and then a welcome break for the afternoon and a full day off on Sunday.
Play will resume on Monday and finish with one section on Tuesday and the final banquet in the evening.
