Team Paterson held sway throughout the contest, holding a four-stone advantage heading into the ninth end, and duly prevented their opponents from mounting an improbable comeback.
Leaders Sweden made it seven wins from seven as they brushed aside Norway 7-2 and sealed qualification in the process as they look, once again, to finish the pools with a perfect record after going 9-0 last year. Losing ground behind Scotland in the chase for the knockouts were Italy and Switzerland, both of whom were dealt defeats in the evening session.

Four teams are now tied at the top of the standings in the women's competition after a dramatic afternoon session. Scotland, Russia, Sweden and Switzerland all sit locked at the summit after all four notched their fifth wins of the competition.
Reigning champions Sweden dispatched Estonia 7-3 in confident style, while Switzerland edged out Denmark 6-4. Russia beat Latvia 8-5, and Scotland were made to come from behind as they eventually toppled Germany 10-5. Elsewhere, the Czech Republic squeezed past Norway 6-5.
Scotland got themselves back on track for the knockout stages at the men's European Curling Championship with a convincing victory over Germany.
The game was evenly poised at 2-2 after five ends but Team Paterson took two in the sixth end and then stole three in the seventh to record a 7-2 win, the perfect response to the 6-5 loss to Denmark in the previous match.
That moves their record to 4-2, which is good enough for joint second along with Italy – who dispatched lowly England 8-2 – and Switzerland, after they were surprisingly beaten 9-4 by Norway.
