CC Aarau beat Sweden 8-7 at the Silkeborg World Cup. Surprising victory snatched in the extra final.
The world championship final in Silkeborg (Dan) was played at the end of suspense, during an additional 11th final. With the advantage of the last stone, the Swiss have perfectly negotiated this time of money, finally winning 8-7.
CC Aarau, formed by Silvana Tirinzoni (skip), Melanie Barbezat, Esther Neuenschwander and Alina Pätz achieved a great feat against a Sweden that started as a great favorite. In fact, in her current formation she is an Olympic champion, vice world champion and European champion. On top of that, the Scandinavians had a psychological advantage: they had already dominated Switzerland (8-5) in the 4th round of the round robin last Sunday.
In a game of twists and turns, the Swiss controlled the start of the game, before giving up in the fifth and seventh periods, conceding two strokes of two. They had to wait until the ninth round to restart their business and force Sweden to this additional final, which did not reach technical heights. Nervousness has taken over. As is often the case at big events, it was Alina Pätz who made the difference on the last two stones, dominating world No. 1 Anna Hasselborg.
