In women's action, Canada defeated Great Britain 9-6 to improve to 3-0. With Canada leading 8-6 heading into the tenth end, Great Britain world champion skip Eve Muirhead had an opportunity to tie the game and force an extra end with a draw, but went for the very difficult triple takeout to try and win the game. She was unsuccessful and ended up giving a steal of one point and the Canadian victory.

Jennifer Jones took control of the game in the fifth end when she executed an outstanding run back to take a 6-3 lead.

In men's action, Brad Jacobs of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario defeated Russia 7-4 to improve to 2-2. Russian fourth stone thrower Alexey Stukalskiy flashed with his first stone in the first end which led to Canada generating a four ender.
