Jones' team loses to Scotland's Muirhead

  • Print

SWIFT CURRENT — Jennifer Jones' dreams of a second Worlds Women’s Curling championship crashed and burned Saturday night on the shores of Scotland.


The Winnipeg skip was ousted 10-4 by 19-year-old Eve Muirhead, who will meet Germany’s Andrea Schopp in Sunday’s final. Jones' foursome — which includes third Cathy Overton-Clapham, second Jill Officer and lead Dawn Askin – will face Sweden in the bronze medal game Sunday morning (11 a.m/TSN).


Jones had finished atop the 12-team round-robin at 10-2, but the St. Vital quartet then lost the Page 1-2 game to Germany, then the semifinal to Scotland.


It was a similar story for the Jones foursome last year in Gangneung, Korea, when they went 9-2 in the round robin then lost consecutive games to finish off the podium.


The gold medal final will also be televised by TSN at 4 p.m. CST.
