Canada stun China to allow Sweden to move top
Canada stunned a strong Chinese team in the 2019 Women's World Curling Championships to allow Sweden to go top of the table.
With China leading 6-5 after an even battle in Silkeborg, a brilliant ninth end saw Canada pick up three points before closing the game out 8-7 to rise to joint-sixth in the standings and get right back in the hunt for a play-off spot.
Skip Chelsea Carey said: "It was tricky early but we had a good beat of what was going on, the girls were reading it really well and judging the paths.
"We have nothing to lose at this point - we've just got to keep winning. We can only do what we can do - we were playing better than the results so we hoped it would turn round for us and thankfully it did."
Elsewhere, the other table-topping side Korea couldn't take advantage of China's slip as they lost 8-3 to Finland.
An efficient performance throughout saw the Finnish team pick up their maiden win of the Championship.
"It feels amazing - it has been a really tough week so far with tough losses and some hard games," Finland's Oona Kauste said.
"This game gave us so much self-confidence that we can do it."
Meanwhile, Scotland couldn't bounce back from their shock loss against Switzerland in the morning session as they fell 9-6 to Denmark in a close game.
Instead of making up ground on the new leaders, the Scots are now in a three-way tie for the sixth and final qualification spot with Canada and the United States.
The United States themselves beat bottom-placed Latvia 9-6 with two in the final end sealing the win.
