US men's curling rides wave into semi-finals

22 February 2018

John Shuster and the USA men are doing all they can to stay in the playoff conversation after defeating Canada this afternoon in round robin play at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018.

The United States is still alive in men's team curling at the Olympics.

Meanwhile, the U.S. men's team pulled off a dramatic win against Canada Monday to remain in medal contention.

Win and you've got a medal and are playing for an upgrade.

After a strong start, the Americans had conceded two consecutive steals to the Brits, with Shuster missing with the hammer in the third and fourth ends and conceding the United States' lead. First, it had to get past a guard, a rock that Canada placed to block the path. Shuster's shot barely sneaked past the guard, then bumped out Canada's scoring stone and stopped on cue to seal the Americans' first-ever victory over Canada in Olympic men's curling.

Against Great Britain, the USA opened the match with two points in the first end but found iself down 3-2 after four ends.

"We'll play whoever we get".

The U.S. team with Madison-born athlete Joanne Firesteel Reid finished 15th in the mixed relay. They came in as unit and stuck together as a unit.

The American men's team, skipped by Superior's John Shuster and including McFarland's Matt Hamilton, won its second straight game Tuesday by beating Switzerland 8-4 in nine ends. "We've got to find a way to play better ourselves and pick up a couple of wins", Koe said.

Many Twitter users chimed in to support the curling team while also firing back at Alley for her comments.

Reid struggled at the shooting range in her portion of the relay as the second USA athlete on the course.

"There's some different weapons that we'll have to be aware of", Granato told The Associated Press.

Unlike the Canadian and world curling championships, in which the Page playoff gives the top two seeds a second playoff life and thus two routes to the final, Olympic gold requires winning a semifinal. "I think what we learned from our team is it doesn't matter what the other team does". We're here to play for a medal. "Be ourselves and bring the best version of ourselves out onto the ice - and give it everything", Landsteiner said about the team's plans going into the semifinal against Canada. The result was quite the opposite for the American women. Rachel Homan's team from Ottawa was eliminated from women's contention with a fifth loss Wednesday.
