MOUAT AND MUIRHEAD SET FOR QUARTER FINALS AT CHAMPIONS CUP
Team Mouat continued their unbeaten run at the Grand Slam of Curling (GSOC) Champions Cup, beating Team Pfister 6-2 in their final round robin game. Mouat’s men had already qualified for the play-offs with one game to go and will take a lot of positives finishing on a 4-0 record – a record matched by only one other men’s rink in the draw following the round robin stage, World silver medallists Team Gushue.
Team Muirhead had also qualified for the play-offs but narrowly missed out 6-7 at an extra end in their final round robin game, which enabled their opponents, Team Carey , to join them in the quarter finals.
Muirhead will face Anna Hasselborg’s Olympic Champions from Sweden in their quarter final, whom Muirhead beat to gold at the European Championships in St Gallen, Switzerland this season.
Mouat's quarter final opponents will be decided following the outcome of tie breakers between four Canadian teams, Team McEwen v Team Flasch and Team Jacobs v Team Gunnlaugson.
Team Mouat v Team Bottcher 9-8
