Canada’s Chelsea Carey recovered from a loss to Japan to post a 7-6 win over Finland on Monday at the World Women’s Curling Championships.

Carey’s Calgary-based rink scored two in the eighth end to take a 7-3 lead. But the winless Finns made it close with two in the ninth and a steal of one in the 10th.

Canada improved to 3-2 with the win, good for a tie for fifth with Japan and Scotland. The top six teams after the round-robin make the playoffs.

China downed host Denmark 8-4 to improve to 5-0. The Danes fell to 0-5 along with Finland and Latvia.

Russia (4-1) moved into a tie for second with idle Sweden with an 8-7 win over the United States (2-3).

South Korea was in fourth at 3-1.

Scotland scored two in the 10th end for a 5-4 win over Latvia in the other Draw 8 match.

Earlier, Canada fell 7-5 to Japan. Seina Nakajima’s rink took control with a deuce in the ninth to take a three-point edge.
