    Background: Mixed fortunes for the two North American teams through to the semi-finals of the World Curling Championships, held in Perth, Scotland, on Friday (21 March).

    In a brilliant display, the United States team swept aside the challenge of Sweden to win a place in the final.

    Inspired by the outstanding draw shots by their skip Ed Risling, the U.S. team went through to take the match 6-4.

    The chance of an all-American final evaporated when the Canadians also took on European opposition -- Switzerland -- in the other semi-final.

    This produced an even tenser struggle. The score was tied at 5-5 at the tenth end. The Swiss won thanks to a brilliant final shot by their skip Otto Danieli, Whose stone took out the Canadian shot rock. In his final shot, Canadian skip Bill Tetley could do nothing to counter Danieli's skill and the Canadians lost 6-5.
