Curling: Ireland gain third win

Updated: October 3, 2012

Ireland’s mixed curling team, consisting of Robin Gray, Lousie Kerr, Johnjo Kenny and Hazel Gormley-Leahy gained a convincing win over Italy on day three of the European mixed doubles championships in
Erzurum, Turkey late last night.

It leaves the team with three wins from four outings following their
earlier in the day defeat by favourites Scotland.

Team member, Louise Kerr had this to say about the team’s loss against
near neighbours and great rivals, Scotland:

“It was all going so well too.Our mixed curling team were 4-1 up on
Scotland at the five end break here at the European Mixed curling
Championships in Turkey, but the loss of four shots at the fifth end
saw the might of the Scottish foursome ease into another gear. In the
sixth end Robin Gray´s draw for a one to tie the scores was slightly
too long and after his hit for a one at the seventh swung too far, it
was handshakes.

The team are still confident of getting more wins but this was a game
that they could have won if they had been playing more consistently”

Scotland with Eve Muirhead and Ewan Three wins out of course though is an excellent return for teh Irish
team and one they would have been more than happy with on arrival in
