Winter Olympics 2018: Canada, Switzerland to play for mixed curling gold
After winning its first mixed doubles curling matchup against the Olympic Athletes from Russia (OAR), the United States has struggled.
The U.S. jumped out early, stealing two points in the first end, but couldn't carry that offense forward, falling 6-4 to China's Rui Wang and Ba Dexin.
Despite a hard defeat for Switzerland, the duo of Jenny Perret and Martin Rios will have an opportunity to bounce back on Saturday against South Korea.
"After the game, 2014 gold medallist Lawes and 2010 gold victor Morris said they would skip the opening ceremonies, as it wouldn't leave enough time prior to their next game".
"We're just being patient. We're playing good, consistent curling and then getting some good wins", said Morris.
The Americans never trailed after that first end and the game was called after seven ends when they had amassed an insurmountable lead.
The first end was the first time the Hamiltons had scored more than one point in an end since the first game of the competition against Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation. Finland was the only winless team (0-4) and had the daunting task of challenging Norway to get off the schneid.
"For the most part, we played a pretty good game", Matt Hamilton said.
Hamlin picked as Team USA flagbearer Davis has two gold medals and a silver medal. That always seems to be a really, really big-name person, she said. Had he been named flag bearer, the people confirmed, he would have accepted the honor and taken part.

Switzerland moves to 4-2 with the victory, while the host country falls to 2-4.
After several misses by Finland, and with Canada sitting with three in the four-foot, Lawes, with the final shot of the end, was able to play a light hit on a Finnish rock in the four-foot to score five and earn an 8-2 win.
Each team is comprised of one male and one female, and there are six stones in play instead of the usual eight.
China stole points in three ends in the game.
Canada has made the mixed doubles podium just twice at the world championships, grabbing a silver in 2017 and a bronze in 2009.
John Morris, who won an individual gold medal at the 2010 Olympics, was particularly adept at keeping Switzerland off the board with six takeouts.
Winnipeg's Kaitlyn Lawes has clinched a playoff spot here at the inaugural mixed doubles curling event at the 2018 Winter Olympics.
