ten years after he fell short to Saskatchewans

  • OTTAWA, Ont. Phil Jones Jersey . -- Darren Moulding came into the Rideau Curling Club in Ottawa with a bad memory on his mind, but he left it with a much better one. Moulding and his Alberta rink from Coaldale and Airdrie captured the 2014 Canadian mixed curling championship with an 8-5 win over defending champion Cory Heggestad of Ontario, ten years after he fell short to Saskatchewans Steve Laycock at the Rideau Club in the final of the Canadian junior mens championship. "I thought about it. Its even the same sheet of ice," Moulding said with a chuckle. "Its something thats bothered me for 10 years. "Just two years ago, somebody was talking to me about it and asked me about the double I missed in seven (against Laycock) and I damn near started to cry. So, yeah, it puts a bit of a lid on that for me. It was something that always chafed me a little bit." Mouldings rink of Anna-Marie Moulding, Heather Jensen, and Brent Hamilton claimed Albertas 10th title at the Canadian Mixed, and first since Calgarys Dean Ross prevailed in 2008. Alberta, 9-2 and first place after the round robin, had a slow start, giving up a steal of one to an Ontario team that won three times on Friday to reach the final. But Moulding came back strong the next two ends, tapping for a deuce in the second and stealing one in the third when Heggestad attempted a double-takeout. But Heggestad tied it with single points in the next two ends, and forced Moulding to a single in the sixth before taking his first lead of the game with a great double-takeout in the seventh to score two. A runback double-takeout from Hamilton set up Mouldings tap for a deuce to retake the lead. In the ninth, two Ontario picks left Heggestad with only a tough in-off to score; he would miss it, and Moulding would steal two to put the game and the national championship away. "It was a crazy game," said Moulding. "We had our chances. We almost broke it open in five when I had a shot for five or six. After missing that it felt like somebody kicking me in the gut. But then you go, OK, were tied with the hammer. Someone tells us were tied with hammer with five ends to go to win a Canadian championship, you take it, right? With the win, Moulding gets two entries (two two-person teams) into the 2014 Canadian Mixed Doubles trials, slated for March 19-23, also in Ottawa. The winner of the 32-team competition will then represent Canada at the World Mixed Doubles in Scotland in April. The 2015 Canadian Mixed Championship is scheduled for Nov. 8-15, with the pre-qualifier to take place Nov. 6 and 7 at the Granite Club, in North Bay, Ont. John Stones Jersey .

"How many innings was that?" he wondered.ROME -- Serena Williams isnt committing to playing in the Italian Open yet as she waits to see how her injured left thigh feels. The top-ranked Williams withdrew before her quarterfinal match at the Madrid Open last week. "Im taking it a day at a time. Well see as the week goes on. I have the rest of the day off and Ill see how I feel tomorrow," Williams said Monday. "I hit some balls today a little bit so Im going to see later tonight how it feels." In Madrid, Williams had her thigh heavily bandaged and said the injury occurred during a first-round victory over Belinda Bencic. She dismissed conjecture of pulling out for precautionary reasons. "I dont do anything out of precaution anymore. You live once and I feel like anything can happen tomorrow," Williams said. "I just physically couldnt play. I was in a lot of pain and just wasnt able to continue. When I play I want to give 100 per cent. "I want to go out there and I want to give the fans everything that they deserve and everything that they come to see," Williams added. "And I just wasnt going to even come close to being there." Williams is the defending champion at the Foro Italico, and also won the title in 2002. Shell also be the defending champion when the French Open starts in two weeeks. Phil Jagielka Jersey. Compared to earlier in her career, Williams said she really enjoys the red clay of Rome and Paris now. "I love the challenge of having to be more consistent and having to be that much better," she said. Williams is slated to open against either Romina Oprandi of Switzerland or Andrea Petkovic of Germany. Shes one of eight Americans in the draw -- quite a large showing compared to recent years. "Its good timing. Im nearing the end of my career, I guess -- who knows when its going to end, I love playing -- and people get inspired by different Americans maybe, and maybe start to play now," Williams said. "I love seeing all the Americans around." The other Americans in Rome are Varvara Lepchenko, Sloane Stephens, Christina McHale, Lauren Davis, Madison Keys, Alison Riske and Serenas older sister Venus Williams. At 32, Serena Williams marveled at the retirement announcement last week by former No. 1 Dinara Safina, who is 28. "Shes a lot younger than me," Serena said. "I just enjoy it right now. I enjoy my practice and Im starting to look in the mirror like, Wow. Whats wrong with me? I should be starting to not enjoy it so much. But the older I get the more I enjoy it. Its kind of weird but Im going to take it as it is." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
