Bouncing back: United States takes dramatic curling victory over Canada

Bouncing back: United States takes dramatic curling victory over Canada

The U.S. team beat both of those countries in the round robin and earned the direct path to Thursday night's semifinals based on head-to-head record.

The decisive win came Wednesday, with skip John Shuster making a few massive shots to put the team just one win away from a medal.

"We know what we're capable of doing". After playing a series of flawless draws following some Danish takeouts, Canada had the button surrounded around the eight-foot. Canada tied it twice, in the eighth and 10th ends, but never led after the second end. In the fifth end, the USA answered back with a takeout to score three points and take a 5-3 lead into the second half. Roth's final effort caught a guard and wasn't able to get into a scoring position against three Swedish stones.

Denmark blanked the sixth and scored a single in the seventh before shaking hands.

Alley isn't the first celebrity to comment on the sport during the Winter Games. "They probably are going to be feeling it a little bit".

"We obviously wanted to contribute to the big Team Canada here and get on that podium somewhere". "He's been such an awesome curler for so long and such a great part of our new team". That's the team we are.

Zidane, as he had hinted he may do, rang the changes with Cristiano Ronaldo , Luka Modric , Toni Kroos and Marcelo among those missing.

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.

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

What she may not have been counting on is the United States men's Olympic team shooting her down with the best comeback. "If you want to play anybody at the Olympics with medals on the line - it's Canada", said George in a press release.

Fellow Team USA curler Tyler George burned Alley by posting a photo of the character Diane Chambers from Cheers and compared her to Alley's character in the show, Rebecca Howe. It will play the victor of a tie-breaking game between Great Britain and Switzerland. "We all had really good shots, we played really well, we all had our misses but we all just stuck with each other and kept grinding through that game", said Landsteiner, who was a member of the 2014 Olympic team as well.

"We know we have hammer". We're here to play for a medal.
