Early Wins for Scotland at World Junior Champs

Posted on

Team Jackson and Team Mouat both secured wins in their opening sessions at the World Junior Championships in Copenhagen today.

Skipped by Sophie Jackson making her debut at the world juniors, Scotland’s women rallied after giving up a steal of two to their opponents in the first end of their opener and went on to beat Japan 6-4.

In their second match of the day, Team Jackson looked set to reverse their fortunes again as they battled to recover from four down after the second end and were just one shot adrift of Hungary by the fifth, however after the sides exchanged singles in the next two ends, it was Hungary that was able to extend their lead with a single at the eighth and a double at the ninth to seal the match, 10-6.

By contrast, Team Mouat had a more straightforward start to the tournament leading with a two from the first end, never relinquishing their lead beating Norway 7-4.

Scotland’s men face the USA and defending champions Canada tomorrow and Team Jackson take on Korea.
