The last time the American women beat Canada at the World Championships was in 2006 in Grande Prairie, Alberta, which also was the last time the American women medalled at a world championship.
Tonight’s game was high on tension as an extra end was needed for Erika Brown (Oakville, Ontario) and teammates Debbie McCormick (Rio, Wis.), Jessica Schultz (Richfield, Minn.) and Ann Swisshelm (Chicago) to defeat Rachel Homan’s rink at the Volvo Sports Center.
“We played a lot sharper. We gave ourselves a good talking to after yesterday with the two losses,” said Brown, who is playing in her eighth world women’s championship. “We knew we had to get it going and get back in the win column. Everyone was just fired up and ready to go today.”
