Scotland bow out of World Wheelchair Curling Championships
Despite claiming another victory, Scotland missed out on the latter stages of the competition at the World Wheelchair Curling Championship in Wetzikon, Switzerland.
The day started with a rout for the Scottish side as they recorded a phenomenal 11-1 victory over the Czech Republic.
Scotland led 2-1 after two ends but then secured a four in the third end to put themselves into pole position.
They continued to assert their dominance with a three in the fourth end and wound up the match 11-1 winners after only contesting six ends.
It was their fourth victory of the tournament and helped their chances to make the play-offs, but that hope was extinguished in their final round robin match.
Against Korea, it was a much closer contest with Scotland trailing 2-1 after two three ends.
Two more scores from Korea gave themselves a 4-1 lead after the fifth end, but Scotland hit back with a three in the sixth to close the gap.
However, it wasn’t enough as Korea clinched their own three in the seventh end to wrap up a 7-4 victory over last year’s silver medallists.
Scotland avoided relegation as they finished in ninth position.
