Ford World Curling Championships 2002

Men's tournament, Draw 6

USA's Pustovar moves forward

Paul Pustovar's USA team put in an impressive performance this afternoon defeating Canada in an extra-end game with 8-7. It had everything we want to see from a curling game, lots of stones in play, good shots and an excellent finish. The last three ends had it all, in the ninth David Nedohin's last shot was a tiny bit heavy when he tried to tap an USA stone out of the house (hidden behind a guard) and he didn't get the curl he needed, giving USA a steal to be down 5-7 coming home.

In the 10th end Paul had to guard two Canadian shots in the centre of the house to avoid losing three. Nedohin had a double tap-in for the win but didn't find the curl he needed and the game was tied at 7-7.

In the extra end it came down to a draw to the button to win the game and Paul Pustovar delivered what the crowd wanted, an excellent shot for an excellent win 8-7.

The last time the USA lead Richard Maskel met Canada in a World's was in 1986 when USA lost in four ends on their way to the bronze medal so this was sure an improvement compared to 16 years ago. Today you're not even allowed to stop playing until after the 6th.

Finland ended Scotland's winning streak by defeating the Scots with 8-4, Switzerland won over a struggling Swedish team with 8-4 and the same numbers goes for the game between Norway and Japan, Norway winning. Denmark won against Austria 10-3 after six ends.

USA and Scotland shares the lead in the round-robin at 5-1 and then follows Canada and Denmark with 4-2.
