CURLING CONTROVERSY: What would you have done?

Denmark ended up winning the game in overtime, and Homan later defended her decision to remove the rock, saying she was just following the rules.

Canada plays the United States on Saturday. They used the time well, soaking up the support of loved ones and airing their own ideas and concerns among themselves. But it was the Danes who had the last laugh as Homan missed a takeout with the hammer in the 11th end, losing 9-8 and dropping Canada to 0-3 in the tournament.

"You can feel that (Canada is) not they're usual 'them, ' " Dupont said. "That's the team that we expected to come".

"I wouldn't have done it, but we're different that way", Madeline Dupont, Demark's captain, told the AP.

Miskew was the most efficient performer of the game, shooting 98 per cent. Second Joanne Courtney curled 93 per cent and lead Lisa Weagle shot 86 per cent. Smiles had replaced the grimaces and they were really communicating again on the ice. "I'm just so proud of them".

Still, one result doesn't mean they are out of the woods.

It has been going great for the Canadian men's curling team.

Next up for Canada is a Sunday afternoon matchup against Switzerland's Silvana Tirinzoni.

"They should have left it in play".

Kingbury said he and other members of the Canadian support team stayed up until 4 a.m. after the events of Friday, brainstorming ideas to somehow try to effect a change. "So it's just the rules, I guess".

This win has to be a real confidence booster.

"I felt like we had a good game", she said. "It was good enough today and we hope that that performance will lead to a lot more victories". In the eighth end, Ulsrud was light in an attempted draw to the eight foot and forced Canada to steal a point. Homan was playing to win and got the victory she needed. "We're not out of this thing".
