So it's the women's semi final and it is Anette Norberg for Sweden against Denmark, there was a good crowd in the arena, Swedish of course, but they were making quite a noise.
The cognoscenti, and that includes me, had of course predicted game to Sweden in eight ends, how wrong can you be. Both teams were making mistakes in this game, Sweden more than Denmark. In the sixth Anette was heavy with her last stone, Denmark stole a single for a lead of two. Now in a Championship semi final that's quite a lead.
Denmark held on to that lead going into the ninth and that's when Sweden started playing, with last stone of the game Norberg made a great come around tap back for four shots and a two shot lead. That was enough, the Swedes removed all the Danish stones that came into play in the final end, Denmark got a single but Sweden won the game 8/7.
Tomorrow they meet Switzerland in the final.
