Canada went out on top early in the first period with a goal by Christian Thomas but the Koreans, playing before another packed house of cheering, hometown fans, were far more ready to play than in their clubbing by the Swiss a day earlier, and Canada found it hard to get their offense in gear after that.

The Swedes now lead the men's standings at 5-0, with Canada right behind at 4-1. "You give up four in the first end, especially missing the way I did".

The South Korean women's curling team claimed their fourth win of the PyeongChang Winter Olympics on Sunday to edge toward a place in the semi-finals.

On Finland's 25-man roster at the Olympics, 11 were in the lineup against Korea then.

"They're powerful. They take the puck to the net".

"We made some huge shots, some really precision shots we had to make as a team", explained Homan.

Korea, ranked 21st in the world, was the worst team in the 12-nation Olympic tournament during the preliminary round. He also assisted on his team's historic goal against the Czechs, scored by Minho Cho just past the 7 ½-minute mark of the opening period.

Veteran skip Glenn Howard, who's coaching Britain's Eve Muirhead, said the parity is "incredible" at the women's worldwide level.

"Really proud of my team for how well they played".

After the preliminary round, teams bound for the playoffs were ranked based on their positions in their groups.

The U.S. had Saturday night off, but six other women's curling teams were in action on the ice. Dalton allowed five goals on 27 shots before coach Jim Paek replaced him with Korean-born goalie Sungjie Park.
