WCT Week 8 Recap

Well, another week of great World Curling Tour action has come and gone. This week saw the preview of a new feature here at NerdCurl, my solo weekly preview show. Each week I’ll preview and predict what’s coming up in events on the World Curling Tour. If you haven’t already, take a listen to my preview for week 8: Week 8 WCT Preview With that, let’s start with the first event to wrap up: Women’s Masters Basel. Congratulations to Team Sidorova, winners of the 2015 Women’s Masters Basel! They went undefeated throughout the whole event, defeating Team Hasselborg in the quarterfinals, Team Muirhead in the semifinals, and Team Tirinzoni in the final…and what a final it was! At the fourth end break Sidorova was down 4-0. They scored 2 in the fifth and then stole another 2 in the sixth to tie things up. A near-miss on a hit by Sidorova in the seventh prevented the force and allowed Tirinzoni to score 2. Coming home with the hammer and down 2, Sidorova’s final shot was nothing short of incredible…a double-raise takeout to score 3 and win! If you haven’t seen it yet forward to 2:06:00 in this video and watch it, trust me. Pretty spectacular, eh? Seriously though, as any of you who read or listen know I am a huge fan of Team Sidorova so needless to say...
