The Canadian women's team qualified for the final at the world junior curling championship with a 9-3 win over Sweden on Friday.
Skip Rachel Homan of Ottawa was in control after storming out to an early 7-0 lead on Anna Hasselborg.
"It's kind of scary to have a lead like that so early in a game," Homan said. "We just kept control of the game after that and did not allow her to build up any big ends."
The United States defeated host Switzerland 6-4 in the 3-versus-4 playoff.
The Americans will play Sweden in the semi-final on Saturday, with the winner to meet Canada for the title on Sunday.

Skip Jake Walker of Kitchener, Ont., led until the seventh end when Norway's Steffen Mellemseter scored three to tie the match 4-4.
