According to CBC Sports, Jennifer Jones's team from Winnipeg has moved to 4-0 in women's curling at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

On Thursday, Canada defeated Denmark 8-5 to move into first place by themselves in the women's competition.

With the game tied at five in the ninth end, Danish skip Lene Nielsen, Denmark's flag bearer in the opening ceremonies, flashed her stone and allowed the Canadian team to pick up a key three points.

Canada showed great resiliency in the game as she came back from a 3-1 deficit in the second end to take a 4-3 lead by the fourth end.

Canadian second Jill Officer curled much better against Denmark on Thursday than she did against Great Britain on Wednesday. Officer curled 93% today compared to only 71% yesterday.

Canada will now play Switzerland's Mirjam Ott, the 2012 world champion Friday morning (Sportsnet). Ott lost her first game of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games on Thursday to Margaretha Sigfridsson of Sweden by a score of 9-8.
