Canada on cusp of playoffs after beating China at mixed doubles curling worlds | CBC Sports

Canada’s Kadriana and Colton Lott are on the verge of locking up a playoff spot at the world mixed doubles curling championship after posting a 10-4 win over China on Wednesday.

The Lotts improved to 6-1 and need one win over their final two group-stage games Thursday to move on to the playoff round.

The husband-and-wife team from Gimli, Man., were down 4-2 through four ends to China’s Ying Yang and Jiafeng Tian but rebounded in the second half, putting the game away with a steal of four in the eighth end.

Canada remained in second place in Group B behind host Sweden, which improved to 7-0 and locked up a playoff spot with a 7-6 win over Australia.

The Lotts play Australia (2-5) and the United States (4-3) on Thursday.
