Canada is back to winning ways at the World Women’s Curling Championship

The Canadians defeated the New Zealanders after losing to the Swiss earlier Tuesday at the World Curling Championships in Sandviken, Sweden.

Kerry Einarson’s team started the day with a 7-6 loss to Switzerland.

The Swiss, the three-time defending champions, took a 6-4 lead with a three-point hit in the fifth end and one steal in the sixth.

With the hammer in hand for the tenth engagement, Silvana Tirinzoni and her teammates scored the point needed to improve their record to 6-0 since the start of the tournament.

Einarson and compatriots Val Sweeting, Shannon Birchard and Brian Harris cruised to a 10-4 victory over Bridget Baker’s New Zealand.

The Maple Leaf representatives broke the 2-2 tie by earning three runs in the third period.

Leading 6-4 after six ends, they scored two more points in the seventh. The two teams closed out the game when the Canadiens stole a two-pointer in the eighth.

The loss left New Zealand 0-7 in the World Curling Championships.

The top 6 teams out of 13 in the standings will advance to the knockout round. The final will take place on Sunday.
