Flims, Switzerland – 7 March 2010: Canada, Sweden and Switzerland continue to be tied at the top of the junior women’s standings after day two at the World Junior Curling Championships in Flims Switzerland.

Canada beat France in six ends 12-2. The French junior women’s team is fielding just three players and an inexperienced alternate following the recent tragic death of their third, Solene Coulot. Despite questions being raised about whether the French would withdraw from the championships, the team insisted they wanted to compete in the event and say they are here to honour the memory of Solene.

Sweden and Germany had a fairly tight game. Germany’s Corinna Scholz, a member of the German women’s team in Vancouver, tied the game up 3-3 by scoring 2 in the seventh end. But Sweden’s Anna Hasselborg took one in the eighth and stole two in the ninth to win the game 6-3.

Switzerland had the upper hand in their game against the Czech Republic. By the second end, Manuela Siegrist was 4-0 up. Anna Kubeskova was unable to turn Czech fortunes around. The final score was 9-2.

The United States picked up their first win of the championships with a win against China 7-5. Scotland continue their losing streak after being between by Russia 6-4.
