Promotion for Latvia and the Netherlands

Mark Neeleman skipped his country into the top ten at next year's European Championship when the Netherlands beat Hungary in the B Division semifinal this morning.

That's Hungarian skip Lajos Belleli encouraging his team.

Gabor Riesz plays last stones for the Hungarian side.

The Netherlands team now meet Russia in the B Division final, the winner having the right to challenge Denmark for the last available place in the Capital One World Championship in Cortina, April 3-11, 2010.

Iveta Stasa-Sarsune skipped her Latvian team to a last stone victory over Austria.

It was a hard fought game, and of course disappointment for Karina Toth and her team, after back to back losses to Netherlands and Latvia this morning.

Here Ieva Krusta calls line on Iveta's stone.

The Latvian girls will now play Shari Leibbbrandt-Demmon for the B Division title, and the chance to play for a world championship place, at the Ford World Women’s Curling Championship, March 20-28, 2010, Swift Current, Canada.

(PS Coo is ecstatic!)
