Road to the Roar

A heartbreaking loss that left us all speechless. They were so close for a moment, even that last rock was so close! Undeniable expression on Cheryl's face: Olympic's hope is over.... Great game thought, we can't deny that, it's just the result that hurts.

Road to the Roar ; in the playoffs

In the first match, Team Bernard was going against Team Webster; a 5-3 win in match that was played strategically. Webster is out and Bernard has one more win to buckle to make it to the playoffs ; mission accomplished in a brilliant 10-8 victory in which, let's be honest, Cheryl Bernard made incredible shoots in the tenth to force an extra. Team Bernard pulled out another rabbit out of the hat and won 10-8 and move to the playoffs against Team Sweeting.

It might be handy for those out of Canada to follow the match on ; oh well, in general, that's a lot better than following the live score. Thanks Allison for reminding me of it!

Next match tomorrow morning at 9am against Team Sweeting! Let's go Team Bernard!

Road to the Road Update

Well, that wasn't the start we excepted, but now we have to live with it - and if a team can do it, it's Team Bernard. Ok, in short, Team Bernard lost their 2 games today. The first one started pretty bad with McCarville taking a 4-0 before the break. Then, Team Bernard started to play better and came back, but it was a little too late, falling short of a point ; Team Bernard 5 Team McCarville 6.

So, since you are playing the Road to the Road with 11 great teams, your next opponent is long time nemesis Shannon Kleibrink. If we dig a little, maybe we will find out that those 2 women have one of the longest rivalry in curling, but one thing for sure, that will be a great battle, too early for that kinf of battle if you ask me. Still, it was a better start, more consistent play but still not enough; they lost 5-6.

So you can guess that after such a day, Dennis needed a little something to relax after what it been through. Now, Team Bernard is in a precarious position as no more loss is allowed but if a team can make it, it's Team Bernard.  We gotta believe!!!

So ladies, go get a good night sleep and come back stronger for you next game. Oh, and opponent is going to be Spencer and the match is at 7pm tomorrow.
