In an eventful final round robin draw, Russian Skip Anna Sidorova came up short with her last draw and handed the USA a steal of one and the point they needed to win the game 6-5 and a place in the playoffs.
Switzerland and Canada had a tight game. But the Swiss managed to break the Canadian’s unbeaten run. At the end of the ninth end Manuela Siegrist’s Swiss side led by 7-6. But Rachel Homan’s last stone narrowly wrecked on a guard and the Swiss stole a point to win 8-6.
Sweden ran the Scots out of stones in the tenth end to win 6-2. Although Scotland finishes up at the bottom of the standings, as host nation of the 2011 World Junior Curling Championships, the Scots have a guaranteed place for their junior men’s and women’s teams.
The game between Germany and the Czech Republic was close. They were tied 8-8 at the end of the ninth end. German fourth Martina Linder left her final shot in the open for Czech skip Anna Kubeskova to make a simple takeout to win 10-8. The win secured the Czech Republic a spot at next year’s World Juniors. Germany will have to play the European Junior Curling Challenge to have a chance of making it to the 2011 Championships.
The French team’s 6-5 win against China meant that France also qualifies for the next world junior event.
