The United States is on track for its second straight win in mixed doubles round robins, having beaten China 7-5 earlier on Saturday.
Season 9 will star Team USA’s Vicky Persinger and Chris Plys and Canada’s Rachel Homan and John Morris.
Team USA finished the first game, as Vicky Persinger took advantage of the last kick, and Canada took a 1-1 lead after finishing second.
While that wasn’t the way they were hoping to get the points, a third finish led to another win for Team America. Canada and the US continued to have another stalemate at the end of the fourth match, the score 2-2.
Time ran out to measure at the end of the fifth half… and the verdict was… Canada had the first goal to lead, 3-2.
A point was stolen from the United States after six finishes, but Canada won, making it 4-2.
The US team had a tough game and unfortunately they couldn’t climb high enough to come back from the early mistakes. Plys and Persinger tried to outdo their opponents, but failed.
The United States conceded a defeat to Canada after finishing seventh, with Canada leading 7-2 against Team USA.
The US will be looking for a win in their last game of the day, against the Czech Republic, which takes place Saturday night at 8:05 p.m. on CNBC.
