Canada’s Jennifer Jones continued her winning streak on Thursday, leading the Canadian women curlers to two victories.

In the morning, Jones handily beat Denmark 8-5. Then, in the afternoon, the Canadian women beat Switzerland, again 8-5.

But for a moment, it was close: The Swiss tied the game 5-5 in the 8th end, with Jones missing a crucial shot.

However, the Swiss threw their last rock lightly in the 9th end, leaving Jones open to score three points, bringing the score to 8-5.

Jones’ rink now stands well on top of the round-robin standings, with five victories and no losses. They have four games left to play. The round robin tournament determines placement in the play-off round, which starts Feb. 19.
