British curlers sink China 6-5 in Beijing

Bruce Mouat and Jennifer Dodds moved one more win away from a guaranteed medal match after holding their nerve to sink China 6-5 in the mixed doubles curling in Beijing.

The British pair’s success saw them move to second place in the round-robin standings behind Italy, with a win over the US later on Sunday set to secure them a semi-final slot.

It proved far from easy for Mouat and Dodds, eager to rebound from Saturday night’s disappointing loss to Italy, who fell 4-1 behind after the first four ends.

But a superbly-chosen power-play hauled them back level after the fifth, and a double take-out by Mouat in the last sealed a priceless victory.

“We need to get this next win and then we can start figuring things out about the knockouts,” said Mouat.

“We’re doing a lot of things right, the dynamic we’ve created has been great, and we’re very happy with our result.”
