A Disappointing Finish
Not because my predicted outcome was wrong - after all, it was the night before yesterday that my prediction became impossible.
Rather because, as Doc observes, one suspects Ontario would have put up a better fight than Manitoba. Ontario had played two tight matches against Alberta in the week, and Manitoba's previous loss to Alberta lasted only seven ends. But this is all speculation.
What is NOT speculation is that Alberta performed stunningly for a whole week. They made it almost impossible to create significant opportunities to score multiply in an end, and at the same time leapt on opportunities left to them by the smallest errors.
I wish them well in the Worlds next month.
