U.S. stuns Canada at curling worlds

From the Toronto Star:

CurlingCanada’s Kelly Scott missed an opportunity to grab a share of second place Wednesday night after a disappointing effort against the U.S. at the Ford World Women’s Curling Championship.

The troubles for the skip from Kelowna, B.C. began in the second end when Scott was heavy on a draw to score one against Debbie McCormick of the United States and gave up a steal instead. The Americans scored a deuce in the 6th end and picked up another steal in the seventh on the way to a 6-2 victory.

As a result, Canada’s dropped to 6-3 and into a tie with Andrea Schoepp of Germany, who blasted Switzerland 10-3.
