Curling: Mouat and Howden are out of luck

Edinburgh curlers Bruce Mouat and Colin Howden were both thwarted by the luck of the draw as they lost to the
two eventual finalists in 
yesterday’s Scottish Mixed Championship quarter-finals at Curl Aberdeen.

Mouat’s rink was beaten 7-3 by a high-powered quartet which included newly-crowned 
world champions Eve Muirhead plus Karen Barthelemy and ex-world champions 
Ewan MacDonald and Euan Byers.

Howden went down 7-2 to Stewarton skip David Mundell who later lost the final to 
Muirhead’s team as the 
2012 champions retained 
their mixed title with a 7-3
