World Junior Curling Championships 2002

Women's tournament, Semifinals

USA and Sweden through to the finals

Sweden was simply to good for the Italian team in the semifinals of the women's tournament. The Swedish rink put the pressure on the Italians right from the start and when Sweden took three points in the third end, the game was more or less over. Diana Gaspari, the Italian skip is an excellent shotmaker but she couldn't resist the Swedes playing at the top of their game stacking up an impressive 85% team score. Sweden won with 8 - 4 after nine ends and there is only one player and one team left to stop them from taking their second gold medal in the World Junior's.

The player to stop them is USA's Cassandra Johnson. She carried her team to victory against the Canadian rink from Prince Edward's Island. Suzanne Gaudet trailed the USA all way after an american deuce in the first end and she never led the game at any point.

The game was decided in the 7th and 8th ends where in the 7th where Canada had a shot and tried to guard it with their last stone but Cassandra Johnson were able to come around and tap out the Canadian shot for two points. In the eighth USA had a guarded shot in the centre of the house, Gaudet tried to draw around the guard and tap one of her own stones to move the USA stone but came up short giving away one point.

Coming home in the tenth Canada was lying two when Cassandra Johnson played her last stone but one of them was not guarded and USA had no problems removing it to win and send Canada into the bronze game tomorrow.
