Ferbey wins the title
a tight game a missed take-out by Pål Trulsen in the 6th proved costly
because it set Canada up with a deuce to take a 5-3 lead. After that Canada
controlled the game and finally won with 10-5.
Randy Ferbey got revenge for last year's loss in the bronze game and can
call himself world champion for the second time, the first being 1989.
The world champions are Randy Ferbey, David Nedohin, Scott Pfeifer,
Marcel Rocque and Dan Holowaychuk.
The sportmanship awards was given to
Mi-Yeon Kim, Korea and Pål Trulsen of Norway
The result and full game report
Scotland wins the women's title for the first time
took 24 years and three lost finals until a Scottish women's team won a
world championship title. This afternoon all this changed when the Jackie
Lockhart team defeated Sweden with 6-5. It was Sweden that was the most
aggresive team through most of the game but only at one time were the
Scottish not able to keep the Swedes in check.
In the final end of the game, Sweden had a good chance to steal but had
problems with the draw weight and Maria Engholm's last stone that was
supposed to be at the top of the house ended up just behind the tee-line and
it gave Jackie Lockhart the possibility to play a hit & stick to win.
The world champions are Jackie Lockhart, Sheila Swan, Katriona
Fairweather, Ann Laird and Edith Louden and Jackie said afterwards that the
Rhona Martin olympic gold was of course a great inspiration to the team and
they kept that spirit going through the week.
The bronze medals went to Norway that defeated Canada in a game where
Norway was down 2-6 after five ends then Norway made five consecutive steals
to win the game with 8-6.
