Morris, Lawes win 4th straight; beat US

The win, coupled with a 7-2 Canada win earlier Saturday over Switzerland, has Lawes and Morris alone in first place with a 5-1 round-robin record heading into the final round-robin draw on Sunday.

Mixed doubles curling is one of four new events in the 2018 Winter Olympics and was the first to kick off official competition even though the Games do not formally open until Friday.

Canada had a 6-2 lead after five ends and Switzerland's rock rolled out of the house on its final throw, giving Morris and Lawes the steal.

Despite a hard defeat for Switzerland, the duo of Jenny Perret and Martin Rios will have an opportunity to bounce back on Saturday against South Korea. "It's just the one shot that gets us and bites us in the end", Becca Hamilton said.

Lawes play was so good it had one commentator calling it "one of the finer games of mixed doubles curling I've ever seen".

"We know we're going to play in the semifinal on Monday, but we don't want to take our foot off the gas for [Saturday's]'s game and take anyone lightly", he wrote. The Swiss then shook hands to call the game. Finland was the only winless team (0-4) and had the daunting task of challenging Norway to get off the schneid.

"I think it was our best team game", Morris siad. "Kaitlyn made some real beauties.We're building some real good momentum".

However, the loss eliminated the USA from reaching the semifinals.

Canada jumped all over the Athletes from Russian Federation early, cracking a three ender in the first end and then adding a steal in the second end to take a 4-0 stranglehold.

Each team is comprised of one male and one female, and there are six stones in play instead of the usual eight.

After a tightly contested match over five ends, where Canmore's John Morris and Winnipeg's Kaitlyn Lawes traded single points with Finland's Oona Kauste and Tomi Rantamäki, the game ended abruptly in the sixth.

Canada, which sits atop the standings in PyeongChang, has never won a mixed doubles world championship, but looks like the favorite for gold through six games.
