Canadian Brendan Butcher was challenged in many ways in his first three matches at the BKT Tires and OK Tire World Men’s Curling Championships.
His Edmonton-based team was organized each time and resulted in a perfect track record.
Butcher’s final win came on Saturday morning with a 7-5 win over a daring Danish team that defeated the Dads Niregård. The victory came after his victory over Scotchman Bruce Mawat before being re-tested by Canadian Japanese Utah Matsumura.
Butcher said, “When there are some ups and downs, it is very difficult to win.” “I think the three games have a little bit of good that we like in different ways.”
Look Canada is still unbeaten after defeating Denmark in Realms:
Metzger trailed a pair 6–2 at the fifth end and won at the tenth end when the fourth stone of the Dane was difficult for Mikel Kruse. Canada no longer had to throw its last stone.
Butcher, deputy Darren Molding, second Brad Thiessen, and captain Carrick Martin were all in great shape, with each player throwing at least 86 percent.
“We gained a little edge in the first two games and today I thought we were really tough,” Boucher said.
Norgaard threw a second stone for Denmark, the team that is taking part in the World Cup for the first time. Kruse, the 66 percent weak man of the day, had to equal 1 goal at the first end, as only Denmark won the game.
Butcher tied three of the next four ends with a soft kick and a goal tied with a two-steal on the fifth. Kruse was easy in a three-tie game.
Denmark had a chance of the pair returning to the game in the seventh inning, but Kruse rubbed a goalkeeper to drop another bowler.
Metzger was tough with a nine-point tie to give Denmark a double-digit lead. On the tenth, Kruse sat under the bonnet, but saw the last stone behind the 12-foot ring.
The Canadian team took the rest of the day before the game on Sunday against Swiss Peter D’Cruz in the 8: 5 winner German Sixteen Tutek.
