Canada’s Chelsea Carey picks up 1st win at women’s curling worlds
Canada’s Chelsea Carey has her first win of the world women’s curling championship.
The Calgary skip scored 4 within the fifth finish en path to an 8-5 win over Germany’s Daniela Jentsch on Sunday in Silkeborg, Denmark. Canada opened the competitors with a 7-6 loss to Korea on Saturday evening.
“It was large to go on the market and get some confidence,” stated vice-skip Sarah Wilkes. “It is large for our group; to get on the market and have an thought of what the ice is doing and be slightly extra snug on the market, much less careworn, it is undoubtedly large for our confidence.
“It is an enormous aid. Being at our first women’s worlds for the three of us [Wilkes, second Dana Ferguson and lead Rachel Brown] and getting that first win for Canada, it felt actually nice.”
Canada trailed 2-1 by 4 ends after the Germans registered a steal of 1 when Carey was large along with her last-rock faucet try. However the Canadians dominated the fifth with eight completely executed photographs, the final being Carey’s wide-open hit for 4 after Jentsch’s last-rock freeze try bounced into the open.
“We have been due for eight [made shots],” stated Carey with a smile. “Once you make eight photographs, good issues occur, particularly when you might have the hammer.
“That was an enormous turning level within the recreation, clearly.”
And successfully erased any lingering disappointment from the Saturday evening loss.
“Dropping the primary recreation is not that huge of a deal so long as you reply correctly,” stated Carey. “You are going to lose video games this week; no person will go undefeated.
“However you wish to attempt to not lose two in a row at any level. We have been just a bit bit off (towards Korea), so we needed to come back out as we speak and be simply that tiny bit higher. The primary half, we weren’t fairly there, however within the second half we received the communication going, we began studying the ice slightly higher and all the things simply received tighter, extra exact, and that is what we wanted.”
Canada (1-1) resumes event motion later Sunday towards Latvia’s Iveta Stasa-Starsune (0-2).
