USA's Anderson clinches quarterfinal spot
Anderson (Broomall, Pa.) and Scottish teammate Duncan Menzies, representing Great Britain, defeated Estonia's Kerli Zirk and Sweden's Rasmus Wrana, 6-4, in the round of 16 this afternoon at the Innsbruck Exhibition Centre Curling Hall.
"I'm excited. It's all really good competition," Anderson said about advancing to the playoffs. "It's really fun, and I'm looking forward to the next game. I'm excited to curl every day though."
Just like last night's match Anderson had to make a clutch shot with the final stone to secure the win. This time it was an in-off using the opponent's stone to roll to the button that Anderson added to her list of successful big shots.
"I knew I had good weight, but his face was dropped and he was like 'Right off,' and I was like, 'no,' because I thought we missed it," Anderson said.
With the win, Anderson and Menzies now move on to the quarterfinals at 5 p.m. today to face Japan's Mako Tamakuma and Korea's Minhyeon Yoo.
