USA ladies earn 8-3 win over Norway to improve to 1-1
Solem (Cohasset, Minn.) and teammates Vicky Persinger (Fairbanks, Alaska), Karlie Koenig (Delafield, Wis.) and Chelsea Solem (Cohasset, Minn.) controlled nearly every end as they defeated Norway's Kristine Davanager rink at the Ice Cube Curling Center.
"It feels really nice to get a win," said Persinger, 20, who is playing in her first world championship. "I think our rock placement was a little better this game and we were getting the rolls that we weren't quite getting before." The win improves the American ladies to 1-1 in the round robin standings. Norway drops to 0-2.
Games this morning were delayed 30 minutes as the buses transporting the teams got lost on the way to the arena. Despite the late arrival and tardy start, the U.S. ladies got right to work on the ice.
