Pittsburgh Men take Bronze at Arena Curling Nationals!

team robinson 2014Team Robinson was 3-0 going into the semi-final match Sunday morning but missed a few shots, putting them in the bronze medal round. After a nail biting 5 ends, Pittsburgh took control of the game, stealing 2 in the 7th to put them up 8-4 without hammer. With the 8th end setting up well, Brian Stuart ripped one in for a takeout and the WIN!! Way to go Mark Robinson, Brian Stuart, Dan Bliss and Steve Buffington! The ladies team (Jacki Temple, Daphne Roberts, Beth Lehman and Amanda Marchitelli) played SIX matches going 3-3 and with true Pittsburgh spirit stayed all day Sunday to cheer for both of the men’s games (sending VALUABLE reports back home!) A fantastic showing by both teams.
