VANCOUVER, British Columbia – The Americans have won four straight Olympic curling matches after an 0-7 start.

Debbie McCormick’s U.S. team beat Britain 6-5 in an extra 11th end on Saturday, following up the men’s victory over Sweden earlier in the day. That gives McCormick two in a row after losing her first three.

The American skip has been inconsistent with her shot-making but stole one in the 11th when 19-year-old British sensation Eve Muirhead had the last stone.

Muirhead’s draw to finish the seventh scored two, putting her team up 5-3. But the Americans scored a point in each of the ninth and 10th ends to force another.
