The United States women’s curling team defeated Great Britain 7-4 Thursday morning in their second game of the Olympic round robin tournament at Gangneung Curling Centre.
It was a low scoring affair throughout, as the U.S. scored two points each in the third and sixth ends to take a 4-3 lead. Great Britain then tied it with a single point in eighth. With the hammer in the ninth end, the United States was able to grab the decisive point before stealing two in the final end.
Team USA began round robin play with a 10-5 loss to Japan Wednesday. The women’s curling team will play a second time Thursday when they take on Switzerland at 8:05 p.m. (6:05 a.m. EST). The U.S. finished in last place at each of the last two Olympics, however all five players on this year’s women’s team are making their Olympic debuts.
