Oh my, that’s what I call living on the edge : that wasn’t an easy day for Team Bernard – not that they didn’t play good, but just a little bit below what they usually do. On the first match, they were facing Smith Dacey, the surprising bronze medalists at the Scotties in February and Bernard did start strong but weren’t able to limit their opponent to only one point and ended up losing in an extra end 7-6. So, it means that they slide to the C event and as you know, the C event is the last chance one team has to make it to the playoffs and that won’t be easy.
So, later today, they were facing Team Erika Brown from USA. Once again, Team Bernard did start strong and even had a lead 5-2 until they let Brown caught up by allowing them to score 3 to tie the game. The girls managed to score one and then steal to avoid the extra end.
Next match is tomorrow at 4.00 (ct). That let them time to recover and fill up their battery for a big Sunday, all that on a good feeling.
