Flawless Koreans turn away USA
Team USA's Allison Pottinger (Eden Prairie, Minn.), Nicole Joraanstad (Verona, Wis.), Natalie Nicholson (Bemidji, Minn.) and Tabitha Peterson (Eagan, Minn.) now fall to 0-4 with today's loss at the Enmax Centre to Korea's Ji-Sun Kim rink. Both Kim and vice skip Seul-Bee Lee finished the game with perfect 100 percent scoring stats.
A diligent practice schedule is paying dividends for Team Korea, which improved to 4-1 in the round robin standings in the team's second world championship appearance. "Every day we practiced for five hours over the past year, and my shots have improved," Kim said. "Our ice reading and shot-making has been good so far."
