Equal low score but skip Murdoch pleased with latest win

12 February 2014 / 18:32

Skip David Murdoch admitted it was pleasure to be a part of the British men’s rink after they picked up back-to-back wins at the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

The British men’s curling rink defeated Germany at the death on Tuesday and returned just over 24 hours later to see off the charge of Switzerland 4-2.

The total of six points scored in the clash with the European champions was the equal-lowest in a men’s Olympic curling match but Murdoch was satisfied.

“The guys played some real nice ones. It is nice to see; the boys came out with their chests out and really had a lot of intensity and fire in their stomachs,” he said.

“We needed to start a little bit sharper and we stayed in front of them and I think that was the key. We were really frustrating them. We played some great shots; it was fantastic to be part of that solid team.

“We talked about the last five against Germany afterwards and that was the response we wanted to see from the team.”
