Scotland beat China at an extra end, but then lost to Sweden at the last stone, in yesterday's games at the Ford World Women's Curling Championship in Lethbridge, Alberta.
Eve Muirhead, Anna Sloan, Vicki Adams and Claire Hamilton still have Italy and Canada to play, but with four wins and five losses have only the slimmest of chances of reaching a tiebreaker even if they were to win both of these games. Standings after 14 sessions: Canada, Korea, Sweden 7-2; Switzerland 6-3; Denmark, USA 5-4; Russia, Scotland 4-5; Germany 3-6; China, Czech Republic, Italy 2-7.
All the results are here, and Mike Haggerty has his reports on the Scottish games on the Royal Club website here. The WCF Day Roundup is here.
