Keri Einarson beats USA 9-3 at the Women’s World Curling Championships

PRINCE GEORGE, BC – Canada’s Keri Einarson moved closer to qualifying for the playoff rounds at the Women’s World Curling Championships after defeating the United States 9-3 on Thursday.

The host nation improved to 7-2, and was expected to return to the field in the evening against South Korea (6-3).

Einarsson stole four points in the first three finishes and added three more points in fifth, en route to a win over the American quartet, who conceded the win in the eighth finish.

With their fifth straight win – their fourth against Scotland – the Einarsson quartet control their fate for a place in the playoffs.

However, Switzerland (10-0) secured first place in the preliminary round, bye directly to the semi-finals.

The top six teams after the conclusion of the preliminary round on Friday will advance to the playoffs, and the top two seeded teams will advance to the semi-finals of the tournament.

With an 8-2 record, Sweden is currently in second place, but Canada, which is currently third, can still secure another berth in the semi-finals.

Thanks to its victory over Sweden earlier in the tournament, Canada will take the lead if the two countries end in a draw.

Japan (6-4) is ahead of Denmark and the United States, who have identical records, 5-4. Germany and Norway qualified 5-5 over Italy (3-7), the Czech Republic (2-7) and Turkey (0-9).

Canada completes the preliminary round on Friday with duels against Germany and the Czech Republic.
