In the Semi-finals of the European Mixed Curling Championship 2013, taking place in Edinburgh, Scotland and Germany defeated their opponents and will now play each other for the gold medals and Championship title at 15:00 later today.

Scotland raced to an early lead in their Semi-final against Hungary as they made a good set up to leave skip, Ewan MacDonald, with an open hit to take four points in the first end.

Hungary however fought back and managed to pull level in the fifth end when the Scotland skip opted to throw his last stone through giving Hungary a single point to tie the score at 4-4.

Scotland hit back when skip, Ewan MacDonald, made a double raise, double take out to score three points in the sixth end. They then stole another point in the seventh end before Hungary conceded after seven ends were played.

Finland and Germany on the other hand traded early scores of single points in the first few ends, with the score 3-3 going into the mid-game break.

In the fifth end, Germany skip, Andy Kapp, made an open draw for two points which proved crucial. He then had a simple open hit for two points again in the seventh end, which proved to be enough as Finland could only take one point in the eighth and final end with the score at 7-5.

These results mean Scotland will play Germany for the gold medals and Championship title. Germany chose to start with hammer as they were given the choice having finished above Scotland in Group A.

Hungary will play Finland for the bronze medals and the hammer will be decided following a Last Stone Draw (LSD).
