After picking up two points with a hammer in the fifth end to take a 4-3 lead, Korea stole a deuce in six and another single point in seven, forcing handshakes from Team Canada in a 7-3 Korea victory.

Forrest and company got back to their winning ways Wednesday evening, thumping Sweden 13-1 in just six ends. Canada opened the match by scoring two with last rock in the first end, then stole six points over three consecutive ends for an 8-0 lead.
The Swedes scored a single point in the fifth end, but Canada put an early end to the contest by scoring five in the sixth.
