USA Beats Czech Republic, Headed to Sochi

Team USA Mens Curling topped Czech Republic in an elimination draw to reach the field at the upcoming Sochi Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. (US Olympic Cmte)

In a match reminiscent of some of the wild scorelines seen at Anthracite Curling league nights, the U.S. topped Czech Republic, 7-6, in the Loser-Out match of the Mens Olympic Qualification event held in Germany last week.

The U.S. scored 5 in the 8th end to take a 7-3 lead after trailing 3-2 through 7 ends. The Czechs countered with 2 points in the 9th and a steal of a single in the 10th.

Hosts Germany defeated Czech Republic in the Winner-In draw held the night prior and will join the U.S. of A. in the field at the Sochi Winter Olympics, starting Feb. 10, 2014.

These United States won its last five matches of the tournament and finished with an impressive 7-2 mark after things looked ominous for the Stars & Stripes in the early rounds.

Now, it’s on to Sochi. Be sure to check out our special Sochi Curling pages in the coming days and find out when you’ll have your chance to curl in northeastern Pennsylvania very soon!

    might never understand. It seems too complex and very
    large for me. I am having a look forward in your next submit, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!
