Silvana Tirinzoni's Switzerland registered their eighth win at the World Women's Curling Championship in Prince George, meaning they can qualify for the knockout stages tomorrow if results go their way.

In the morning session, they were dominant against Czech Republic, skipped by Alžběta Baudyšová, with the score ending 10-3.

It was less straightforward against Cory Christensen's United States, but a score of two in the seventh end followed by a steal of two in the eighth turned the tide in the match, with the defending champions emerging 8-7 victors to maintain their unbeaten run.

Now with three wins in hand over fifth-placed Denmark and the US, wins against the Danish side and South Korea would ensure they progress from the round-robin as one of the top two seeds.

It may be the best time for them to play Kim Eun-jung's South Korea, who lost their unbeaten streak yesterday with two defeats.

Madeleine Dupont's Denmark were the first to beat them, winning 8-7 in an extra-end with a steal, and later the prestigious Swedish team skipped by Anna Hasselborg defeated them 7-3.

Kerri Einarson's Canada moved into joint-third with South Korea as the hosts recorded a crucial 10-8 win over Sweden, who sit second second behind Switzerland.

The Americans did pick up a win in the morning session, beating the debutants Turkey, skipped by Dilşat Yıldız, 12-5 to stay in contention for the top six.

Turkey lost again in the evening to Olympic mixed doubles champion Stefania Constantini and her Italian team 9-7, meaning their winless streak extended to eight matches.

Daniela Jentsch's Germany won 7-5 against Constantini's rink, while Ikue Kitazawa's Japan thrashed Denmark 8-1 to keep the challenge for the minor qualifying places interesting.

In the evening, Czech Republic defeated Japan 7-3.

Rebecca Morrison's Scotland had to withdraw from the competition due to several COVID-19 cases in the team.
