Skip MacDonald wins second match at worlds but wants more

Ewan MacDonald secured Scotland’s second win at the World Men’s Curling Championships in Beijing but wants to see improvements made before the round-robin stage is out.

Skip MacDonald moved off the bottom courtesy of an 8-6 defeat of the USA in the ninth session of the round robin with a score of three in the ninth end decisive in swinging the tie in the favour.

That put them 8-5 ahead with the USA scoring just one in the tenth and final end but three-time world champion MacDonald insists they are still making too many mistakes.

“We feel better for getting that win on the board. The guys played good, a good solid performance, and it was nice to finish it off. It was good to get a win,” he said.

“We made a good end in eighth to force the one and get the hammer and the guys played a really good ninth – to make a three there was great.

“We’ve just got to keep tightening up, and keep asking the question.  To be fair, we still need to tighten up and make a few more shots, we’re still making mistakes.”
