Flims, Switzerland – 8 March 2010: Canada and Sweden remain unbeaten in the junior women’s event at the World Junior Curling Championships in Flims Switzerland.

Canada had a tight game against Russia earlier in the morning draw and went on to an equally tight encounter at night against Germany. Canadian Skip Rachel Homan managed to take 3 in the ninth end and eventually ran Corinna Scholz’s team out of stones in the tenth to win 5-3.

Sweden’s Anna Hasselborg broke Switzerland’s winning run by 8-5 in the morning and dominated China in the evening winning 5-1. But the Swiss remain in third position in the rankings after beating Russia 7-6 in a game that went into an extra end in the night draw.

After a poor start to the championship, the United States were on a winning streak on Monday, first beating France 8-5 and pulling through to beat Scotland 7-6 in evening. Scotland, now at the bottom of the rankings on five losses after having lost 1-4 to Germany earlier, had put in alternate Anna Sloan in an attempt to turn their fortunes around.

It was not a good day for Anna Kubeskova’s Czech team either first they lost 7-6 to China and at night Marie Coulot’s French team beat them 8-3.
