Canada beats Czech Republic and Netherlands to maintain unbeaten record at World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship – Sports

Östersund (Sweden) – Kadriana Lott and Colton Lott finished off a dominant Sunday with an 11-0 win over Dutch women Vanessa Tonoli and Wouter Gosgens at the World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship.

The Canadians won 8-3 over the Czechs Zuzana Paulova and Thomas Paul earlier Sunday. Canada improved to 3-0 to take top spot in Group B alongside host Sweden, also 3-0.

“I think that would boost anyone's confidence,” Kadriana Lott said. “I mean we have a couple of good teams coming in, but we know we're playing against the best of the best, so we're ready for it.”

Lott's team strung together three straight ties, followed by a three-point fourth to take a 9-0 advantage. After a pair of singles extended their lead, the Dutch duo lost the match after six ends.

Cadriana Lott finished the game at 98 per cent, complementing the 95 and 96 per cent she achieved in Canada's first two matches.

“She was very consistent with her weights,” Colton Lott said. “For me as a sweeper, that makes it easier to judge. Every time you throw it, I know right away that it's very close.

“I might have to sweep her a little, but she was on the ball nonetheless. Her line call for my shots was very good, too. All around, unbelievable.”

The Canadians got off to a strong start before the Czechs also surrendered two remaining goals. Leading 2-1 after the second end, Canada scored four goals in the third period to take a huge lead.

The Czechs got one goal in each of the next two ends to cut the deficit to three, but a equalizer from the Canadians in the sixth decided the contest.

In other results from the evening draw, the United States beat China (2-1) 8-6, Scotland (2-1) beat Australia (1-2) 7-5, and the Czech Republic (1- 2). They rebounded to win 8-6 over New Zealand (0-3) and Sweden handed South Korea (1-2) an 8-5 loss.

Canada is scheduled to face South Korea next Monday.

The league matches end on Thursday, and the medal matches will be held on Saturday.
