Getting ready, hammer is set

Lin clears out the 4 foot and rolls under cover at the edge of the button. Kinney chips it out and lays one, buried. Great shot. Red tries to draw, but comes up short. Yellow guards. Red draws with their last shot and takes one.

Skips: Lin hits and mostly sticks. Kinney hits and rolls behind and out the other side of the guard. Lin comes narrow and takes the guard off instead of the shot rock. Kinney draws for two.
  4. Seconds: Kinney draws trying to bury behind a long guard. Lin hits and rolls to 75% covered and just biting. Kinney draws the button mostly covered. Lin tries a heavy draw take out and nudges the shot rock and lies second by a touch. Thirds: Kinney hits and rolls to lie two touching each other. There's a double available - Lin makes it and rolls out. Kinney comes short on her draw and sits in front of the red rock at the top of the house. Lin draws back eight covered. Skips: Kinney touches back red and rolls just to side. Lin draws on top of it. Kinney draws top of four for second shot uncovered but a challenge to hit without jamming. Kinney attempts draw and comes narrow. I think she should have gone for the hit for three.
  5. Thirds: Lin hits and rolls out to leave a single red at the top of the four. Kinney hits and rolls to the side of the four. Lin hits and rolls to the top of the button. Kinney hits and sticks.

Seconds: Lin draws the very top of the house with a biter. Kinney hits on rolls to the side on the top guard. Lin corner freezes on her own at the top of the house. Kinney calls for the double - but only singles and promotes one of the reds to top of house. Thirds: Lin draws but is light. Kinney removes the red and sticks to lie three. Lin hits and rolls in front of the other three. Kinney guards in front of the red. Skips: Lin raises one of her guards in, but not far enough. Kinney guards the center leaving Lin with an angle raise. They're thinking about that or the draw around that rock on the 2ft line 2 feet in front of the house. She's too far outside for the raise and too far inside for the draw. Kinney doesn't have to throw her last rock.
