Brady Clark and the American men fell to Czech Republic's Jiri Snitil rink, 9-8, to drop to 4-5 in the standings with just two games remaining in the round robin at the Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre.
Clark (Lynnwood, Wash.) and teammates Sean Beighton (Seattle), Philip Tilker (Seattle) and Darren Lehto (Seattle) finish out the round robin on Thursday with games against Russia (2-7) and Norway (5-4).
"I'm disappointed to lose, but what do you do? You come back tomorrow and come battle some more," said Clark, the 35-year-old senior business analyst for Liberty Mutual Insurance. "We've got important things to think about with these next few games. I know it's a battle and we have important Olympic points to be thinking about."
