Sinking fast: Canada’s Einarson loses 4th in a row at World Women’s Curling Championships

Canada’s Kerri Einarson lost her fourth straight game at the Women’s World Curling Championship, losing 6-2 to Germany on Monday.

At 1-5, Canada can no longer afford to lose if the host team advance to the playoffs. Einarson was due to face South Korea later on Monday.

The top six teams at the end of the round robin will advance to the playoffs.

Up 4-2 after eight innings, Germany stole two runs in the ninth as Einarson was heavy on a draw. The Canadians shook hands after that end.
