Three days of triple knockout play set up the following quarter finals this morning:
McEwen (Canada) v Kauste (Finland)
Deruelle (Canada) v Hardie (Scotland)
Eskilsson (Sweden) v Liu (China)
Murdoch (Scotland) v Schwaller (Switzerland)
Kauste held A side qualifiers McEwen to a close game, but a score of 4 in the seventh end secured a semi final place for the Canadians. They are up against Team Hardie who defeated Deruelle in a convincing fashion in their quarter final.
The Chinese side defeated Eskilsson 7-2 after six ends, and they face Schwaller in the semi final. A steal of 2 in end five was key to the Swiss team prevailing over current Scottish Champions Team Murdoch.
Semi Final matches (McEwen/Hardie, Liu/Schwaller) got underway at 12pm, and the final will take place at 3pm. Spectators welcome (free of charge) at Curl Aberdeen, who have done a great job of hosting this event! Staff and volunteers are ensuring that the Championships runs smoothly.
