Scotland back to winning ways at World Curling

17 March 2013 / 22:58

Eve Muirhead rebounded from a heavy defeat to Sweden to claim the scalp of unbeaten Germany at the women's curling World Championships in Riga.

The Scottish skip was less than impressed with the manner of her rinks earlier loss but was delighted with the performance against experienced German rival Andrea Schoepp.

Indeed the comprehensive 9-2 victory was secured in just seven ends.

"That was more like ourselves," said Muirhead.

"We put pressure on them from the start and our stone placement was good, which was letting us down earlier on, and it was the opposite for them. 

"We're chuffed with that. If you had asked me what I wanted from the first three games, especially playing Canada and Sweden, I would have been happy with two wins and one loss."

Switzerland and Sweden are the only unbeaten teams after five sessions of round robin matches while five teams, including Scotland, have a 2-1 record.

Muirhead's rink - silver medallists three years ago - continue their campaign with games against China - who are yet to win in Riga - and Japan on Monday.
