According to the Canadian Press, Team Canada won their first game of the 2014 World Men's Curling Championship in Beijing, China on Saturday.

Team Canada which is represented by Calgary residents Kevin Koe at skip and Pat Simmons at third, defeated Denmark 6-3.

Canada got off to an outstanding start thanks to a few early misses by Danish skip Rasmus Stjerne. After five ends, Stjerne was only curling 55% compared to Koe's 95%.

A turning point came in the second end. Denmark was in a position to score three points but Stjerne came up light with his first stone and then could not save his shooter in a takeout attempt and forced to only take one point.

A Canadian deuce in the third end was followed by back-to-back steals in the fourth and fifth end.

Koe's team will now face Japan in their next match Sunday at midnight mountain time.
