Italian Curler Ejected From Game at Vegas Worlds

The Italians won two critical games—one via forfeit and another after having a player ejected—on a ludicrous day at the world championships in Las Vegas.

First, the Italians logged a “W” over Switzerland’s “L” when the Swiss ran out of time on their time clock. Under World Curling Federation rules, this time violation results in an immediate forfeit.

Swiss skip Yannick Schwaller was down 5-3 playing the 10th end and had little chance to tie the game when his team’s time clock expired.

In the Thursday night draw, Joel Retornaz’s Italian team faced Lukas Klima’s Czech Republic. Immediately after the conclusion of the ninth end, Italy lead Simone Gonin smashed his brush into the ice in frustration.
