What to watch in mixed doubles round robin finale

The South Korean pair of Jang Hye-ji and Lee Ki-jeong beat American brother-sister duo Becca and Matt Hamilton 9-1 in their fourth round robin match at the Gangneung Curling Center.

South Korea put forth a strong showing with plenty of late drama, putting two stones close to the center of the target in the eighth end to force overtime.

The Hamilton's racked up three points in the first end, and even after the OAR team pulled back two points in the second end, they remained in control as they scored the next four points in unanswered fashion to pull away.

But the 29-year-old from Winnipeg sealed things in the eight and final end with a draw to the button for the 6-4 final.

Outside of the USA matches, Switzerland topped China and Finland to start round robin play 2-0.

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

The Canadians scored another single in the fifth end via a steal before stealing another point in the sixth, at which point it was handshakes and game over. "So 90 percent of the time I feel like I'm the alpha but I think deep down she really knows she".

Morris shouldered the blame for the loss to Norway after some uncharacteristic errors at critical times.

Patience wearing thin with Trans Mountain delays, president says
Alberta Premier Rachel Notley has called the proposal an unconstitutional attempt to stop the $7.4-billion pipeline expansion. Not almost as important as the energy industry is to Alberta and Canada, but important nonetheless", said Notley.

There were four games played simultaneously Thursday morning.

"It's feeling good but we know we are in for some really tough games".

Both players looked confident and seemed to have a much better grip on the ice conditions, and it showed in their performance against China and Finland. "The ice was nice and consistent, but I have to make sure I throw to my tolerance a bit more so that if I do miss, it's not a killer miss".

"When we were teenagers, obviously being so close in age and being angsty kids, we kind of butted heads as youth", Matt said. "It helps when Kaitlyn is making some great last shots". We played a more aggressive call.

"We're starting to get a bit of momentum", Morris said.

John Morris, who won an individual gold medal at the 2010 Olympics, was particularly adept at keeping Switzerland off the board with six takeouts. One stone per team is pre-positioned before the start of play in each end.

"It was a really awesome atmosphere", said Morris.
