SOFIA, Bulgaria (AP) -- German skip Sebastian Stock's last stone in an extra end gave his rink an 8-7 victory over Sweden and the gold medal at the European Curling Championships in Sofia on Saturday.

Germany took revenge over Peja Lindholm's Swedish rink that had edged the Germans 7-6 to win gold at the world championships last April.

With the score tied at 7-7, the game went into an extra end and Stock had the last-rock advantage which he converted into a winning point with his perfect shot.

Norway won bronze after beating Scotland 8-2.

In the women's final, defending champion Anette Norberg's Swedish rink edged Switzerland 9-4 to win gold.

The Swedish team had booked its place in the final after a 5-3 victory over Norway on Friday.

Earlier Saturday, Norway's two-time world champion Dordi Nordby beat Olga Jarkova of Russia 10-7 in the bronze-medal match.
