19 Dec 2019 – Although disappointed by their last-stone, 5-4 quarterfinal loss to Denmark, the New Zealand Women's team were proud of their performance at the World Junior B championships in Finland this week.
They started their week with an encouraging first round win against Germany but then dropped three consecutive pool games, two of those on the last stone to Australia and Denmark respectively.
Needing to win both remaining matches on the last day of pool play to have any hope of playoff qualification, the Kiwis had a comprehensive win in the morning session and then faced Scotland in a winner-takes-all match for the last playoff spot.
