The theft and unexpected power put Canadian Brendan Butcher in the position he faced against Switzerland at the BKT Tires and OK Tire’s Men’s Curling World Championships on Sunday.
After tying up with a hammer at the extra end, a sudden mistake at their first loss to the competition proved costly.
The butcher was easy on his most recent draw when Peter de Cruz won a 6-4 win over the Markin McPhail Center.
“It’s a shot I want to keep most of the time,” Boucher said.
His Edmonton-based team Darren Molding, Brad Thiessen and Carrick Martin took a break when fourth Swiss Benoit Schwartz got his first rockfall in the ninth goal.
This set off hopes of Schwartz’s double attempt to break the Swiss quarter and give Canada a steal and a 4-3 lead.

Metzger forced Schwartz to take a one-of-ten shot to make things up well in the extra finale. However, with the midfield stone atop the four-foot ring, Butcher had to throw a bit wider than usual.
When you take a little more snow there is always a small question mark, ”said the butcher. Will it be a bit faster or will it be a bit slower?
“At the end of the day, I think we knew the time, I picked it up a little bit.”
Butcher, who had the lowest eight-man squad score of 78 percent, made the initial steal twice against de Cruz, but managed to equalize in the seventh final.
Look Switzerland defeated Canada:
“I think we could have done something better in this game, but it’s been a long week,” Molding said. “You will make mistakes.”
“I don’t even know that going 0-15 for this event is realistic. You take damage and move on. “
Canada returned in the afternoon with a draw and won 7-6 against undefeated Dutchman Jaap Van Dorp.
Mulling said he suffered an easy injury to the knee area after slipping from the entry point at the fifth end. He remained in the game and did not bother.
Mulling, who retired from the mixed doubles playoffs last month after suffering backing cramps, said his back is “fantastic”.
De Cruz remained unbeaten 4–0, losing to Canada.
“It was a very good game,” he said. “They are a very strong team. With Canada playing in big events, you know the game is on when you watch it.
“We are very happy and will enjoy it a little bit.”
