Spatola, Rojeski tackle mixed doubles at 2012 Cup
USA's Nina Spatola and Shawn Rojeski helped contribute to Team North America's points total this afternoon in mixed doubles action at the 2012 World Financial Group Continental Cup of Curling at the Langley Events Centre.
Spatola (McFarland, Wis.) teamed up with Canada's Wayne Middaugh against Team World's duo of Tom Brewster of Scotland and China's Qingshuang Yue. The game resulted in a 7-7 tie to split the six available points. It was a similar outcome for Rojeski (Chisholmn, Minn.), who teamed up with Canada's Marliese Kasner, against Team World's Thomas Ulsrud of Norway and Cissi Ostlund of Sweden, 9-9. In the third mixed doubles match, Team World's Anette Norberg and Sebastian Kraupp (both of Sweden) defeated North America's Reid Carruthers and Kim Schneider (both of Canada), 8-4. That outright win gave Team World a six point advantage in the overall standings, 21-15, after two rounds of action.
