Sweden defeats Canada 6-5, taking control of Group B at the World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship |  National sports

Östersund (Sweden) – Swedes Rasmus and Isabella Rana handed Canadians Cadrianna and Colton Lott their first loss at the World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship on Tuesday.

Sweden led 4-1 midway through the match and maintained a 6-5 victory over Canada in a struggle for the top spot in Group Two in the 20-team tournament.

The Warana brothers improved to 6-0 with the win, while the Lotus fell to 5-1.

Sweden scored a hammer goal in the opening end and followed it up with a steal in the second.

The Lotts, a husband-and-wife team from Gimli, Man., had one goal in the third period before Sweden scored the equalizer in the fourth to open their lead.

Canada responded to start the second half of the game with two goals in the fifth end, but a tie from Sweden in the sixth was too much to overcome.

The Lotus scored one run in the seventh and stole one in the eighth but were unable to close the gap.

Sweden achieved 94 per cent, making it difficult for Canada to get back into the game.

“There's not much you can do, you just take it as it is and try to make something of it,” Colton Lott said. “Today I think we were on the wrong side of an inch and not putting our rocks in those exact spots to make those shots more difficult for them.

“We let them out of trouble a few times early. We got them back but we weren't good enough.”

Canada opened the day with a 12-5 win over Scotland.

The Lotts scored three times in the second end and stole another in the third after Scottish duo Sophie Jackson and Duncan McFadzian opened with a single.

Later with Canada leading 6-2, Scotland applied some pressure by scoring three goals in the fifth end to cut the deficit to one.

Team Lotus completely annihilated the Scottish comeback with a score of six in sixth.

Scotland fell to 2-3.

Canada faces China on Wednesday before ending the group stage with matches on Thursday against Australia and the United States.

“We just want to finish strong and get the last two wins here and I think that puts us in a good position,” Cadriana Lott said.
