Seven teams remain perfect at 2013 Mixed Doubles Championship
Not included in the undefeated group are the defending champions, Brady and Cristin Clark of Seattle, who suffered an extra-end loss to Scott and Therese Olson of Massachusetts when Clark's final draw was swept out of scoring position. The win improves the Olsons to 3-0 in Pool A. The game was a roller coaster with the Clarks scoring four points early only to give up five in the next end.
"At the start both teams were a little off, but we both settled in after that and had a hell of a game. After those two ends there were a lot of great shots. It was all about the four-foot," Scott Olson said. After tying the game with a single in the eighth, Teri Olson made a double takeout on the Clarks' stones in scoring position. Brady Clark, the nine-time mixed champion and three-time mixed doubles champ, had just a little too much weight on his final throw of the match.
