Korea's Mixed Doubles Curling Team Thrash the US

11 February 2018, 05:18 | Myrtle Vega

Norway improves to 4-1 overall, tied with Canada and Team OAR.

Trailing 6-5 and down to its final shot, Finland was able to force overtime when Oona Kauste's rock stuck just within the white line on the target for a single point.

The Canadian team tallied three points in the first frame and added another in the second to jump out to an early lead.

"I'm really proud of us for being able to go two days with back-to-back wins and to be able to have our sights set on the playoffs is a really good feeling, but we're still focusing on the present and going to try and keep learning what the ice is doing", Lawes said.

The Hamilton siblings rallied to a 10-3 win against Norway in mixed doubles curling Saturday evening, but earlier defeats mean the USA won't have a shot at reaching the semifinals. Morris and Kaitlyn Lawes will get their first crack at the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation as they look to move their record to 5-1 tomorrow. Switzerland will advance to the semifinals if it tops the OAR on Saturday night. Krushelnitskiy was a ideal 5-of-5 in takeouts, including knocking three South Korean stones out of the target zone in overtime that led to the deciding point. Switzerland even attempted the power play option in the fifth to no available. "We're playing good, consistent curling and then getting some good wins", said Morris.

Canada has made the mixed doubles podium just twice at the world championships, grabbing a silver in 2017 and a bronze in 2009. If China defeats Norway, however, they would force a tiebreak game to be played Sunday morning at 6:05 a.m. EST.

South Korea put forth a strong showing with plenty of late drama, putting two stones close to the center of the target in the eighth end to force overtime.

Two more points in the sixth and another in the eighth by Finland tied the score and kept its hopes of a first win alive by forcing extra throws.

But in the end, Norway's hammer shot just barely reached more in the button than the closest Finnish rock beside it, giving Norway the win and propelling them to the top of the standings.
