Autumn gold update

What a great day of competition it was for Team Bernard, too bad they didn’t win their last match ... it was their third. First match was against Team Nielsen from Denmark and that was a great battle that ended 6-5 for Team Bernard as they scored a deuce to prevent an extra end.

Couple of hours later, they had the chance to get a rematch against the team that defeated them on their first match and this time, it was a different story. The 4th end was crucial, as Team Bernard scored 3 to get a lead that they kept till the end. Team Bernard 5 Team Auld 3.

 So, their last match was against Team Jones. You know Team Jones, very offensive and I’d say this match was different from what we would have thought but Jones got the best... Team Bernard losing 1-4.

It was the last tournament before the pre-trials which will start Tuesday, November 5th. I will be updating every step of the way and we hope that Team Bernard will be able to get one of the two remaining spot for the Olympic Trials in December. Till then, they will practice and do everything they can to make that happen.

Autumn gold update

The score doesn't represent how tight their match against Carey was. Team Bernard losses 5-9 but it was 5-6 heading to the 8th end and they had to give it all to try stealing the point to level up the match. The house ended up with a lot of traffic and Carey managed to have 3 rocks closer to the center. ¸

The day and the tournament were not over and they had to go against Team Holland; another tight battle but this time it ended on Team Bernard’s side. Next match is tomorrow morning at 9.00am (mt). Let’s go ladies.

Autumn Gold update

Tournament started abruptly with a 7-4 loss against Team Auld. A grueling fifth end as Team Bernard allowed their opponents to score 3 points. Sliding to the B event, Team Bernard certainly didn’t give up and hammered Kaufman with a 9-1 win. The next match is tomorrow 9.00am (mt) against Team Carey.

Let’s go Ladies.

Prestige Hotels and Resorts Classic

First match of the day was a tough order as Team Bernard was going against Team Sweeting. It was a really tight match with only a few points scored and Cheryl was pretty happy to nail it on the last rock. Team Bernard 3 Team Sweeting 2. They keep it rolling in the B event and next match was against Team Ott. Despite a lead of 5-3, Cheryl and co. dropped this one 8-5. They will now slide to the C event and no more loss is affordable. Let's go ladies.
