Team World maintains modest lead at Cup
USA's Pete Fenson rink was in the driver's seat for most of the match tonight but the end result was a tie in the final round of men's team competition at the 2012 World Financial Group Continental Cup of Curling.
In the race to 201 points, Team World continues to have a slight lead over Team North America, 66-42, after two days of action at the Langley Events Centre. After a dominating performance last year when the Cup was nearly won by Saturday morning for Team North America, the Canada-USA teams have not yet won a round (four have resulted in ties while Team World won two rounds earlier). Tomorrow the point values increase as the skins and singles competitions begin. Both American teams are scheduled to take part in the "A" skins while USA's mother-daughter team of Patti Lank and Mackenzie Lank of Lewiston, N.Y., will also participate in mixed skins.
