Scotland open with win at World Women's Curling Championship

The 2017 World Women's Curling Championships are set to begin at the Capital Gymnasium in Beijing tomorrow

Yet the Scots started in control, scoring three in the first end and then, after United States of America levelled in the fourth, scoring three again to take a 6-3 lead into the half-time break.

The Scots replied with three more shots in the fifth end but again they were pegged back to 6-6 after the seventh. There's always the first nerves and for Lauren it's her first World Championship playing.

The Americans had last stone advantage in that extra end but Roth could only remove one of two Scottish stones near the button, giving Scotland another single stone steal and the 9-8 win.

"We knew what we had to do after dropping that game [against Italy] this morning, and that was to come out sharp", Muirhead said.

The U.S. led Anna Kubeskova's rink 2-1 before allowing three points in the fourth end and never recovering.

"I wouldn't say we were flat, we were up for this game as any other game, we just didn't convert when perhaps we should have".

Meanwhile, Germany beat South Korea 10-6 to pick up their first win after two losses, and Denmark have now lost two from two as they went down 7-4 against Sweden. "I've got a handle on the ice and I'm really pleased that we managed to scrape a win".

Largely aided by a score of five points in the seventh end, Switzerland crashed Russian Federation 12-7 to join Canada, who defeat United States 7-5 in the morning, to be the only teams maintained unbeaten run until now.
