USA ladies finish 5th at 2012 World Seniors
Oleinik (Brookfield, Wis.) and teammates Laurie Rahn (Lake Forest, Ill.), Stephanie Martin (Barrington, Ill.), Julie Denten (Northbrook, Ill.) and Joni Cotten (Mount Prospect, Ill.) never led in the match against Barbara Watt at the Tårnby Curling Club just outside Copenhagen, Denmark.
"This game was very close, there were a lot of rocks in play every end. You always hear the quote 'you're on the wrong side of the inch' on taps and hits and that was sometimes the case with us," Cotten said. "We had an in-turn open hit to tie and take the game into overtime (an extra end), but it didn't get made, so you wish the other team well in the semifinals, that's how curling goes."
