Canada's Kevin Koe throws a stone during a curling draw between Norway and Canada during the Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at the Gangneung Curling Centre in Gangneung on Feb. 15, 2018.


Canada's Kevin Koe scored three in the third end and held on to beat South Korea 7-6 on Friday at the Winter Games.

The victory improves Koe's Calgary-based rink to 4-0 and atop the men's round-robin standings.

The Canadians had a deuce in the seventh end, but gave up a deuce of their own in the ninth. Korea stole a single in the 10th end but it wasn't enough.

Second Brent Laing led Canada by shooting 95 per cent. Koe finished at 67 per cent.

Skip Chang-Min Kim led Korea (0-4) by shooting 95 per cent.

The Canadians return to the ice on Saturday with a draw against Sweden, which is also undefeated at 4-0.

The Globe's Shelby Blackley teaches Patrick Dell the basic differences between traditional and mixed doubles curling, which is new to the Winter Olympics in South Korea. Much falling on the ice ensues.
