It's game eight for the women at the European Championships, on a record of just four wins they need another one to have any chance of making the playoffs.
So this afternoon it was Germany, once again Eve Muirhead was in for Lorna Vevers. This game was tight all the way through, neither team could get any advantage, they were tied at six all after nine ends. But Germany held the all important last stone for the final end.
There were a lot of stones in the house, Scotland lay one. Andrea Schopp for Germany had a raised take out for a three score, she made the shot to win the game 9/6.
Sweden and Switzerland have six wins, Denmark, Germany and Italy five, Scotland and Russia four.
Scotland must win their game against England in the morning and hope two from Denmark, Germany and Italy lose to have a chance of a tie break.
