In the first game of the day, Park drew the four-foot with her final rock in the seventh to score five and secure an 11-3 win over England’s Lana Watson and Alan MacDougall, who are still looking for their first win.

“We struggled a bit,” Park said afterwards. “But we figured out the ice, and from there we just took off.”

The Calgary duo, backed by coach Jim Waite, continued to dominate against undefeated Maile Moelder and Erkki Lill of Estonia. Leading 4-2 at the break, the Canadians kept the pressure on and stole the next three ends for a 9-2 win.

Canada now sits at the top of the standings in their pool with a 3-0 record, tied with Spain and Korea.

On Monday, Team Canada meets Spain (5:30 a.m. ET) and Poland (12:30 p.m. ET).
