Canada's Kelsey Rocque tops world junior curling standings
Edmonton women's curlers undefeated at 4-0 in Estonia
Kelsey Rocque's Edmonton rink earned wins over Russia and Sweden on Monday to keep the Canadian women undefeated at 4-0 at the 2015 World Junior Curling Championships.
Rocque, the defending champion, started the day with a 10-3 rout of Russia and followed with a 4-2 victory over the Swedes.
Leading 6-3 heading into the eighth end, Canada ended the game with a steal of four points.
It was a scrappier win against Sweden, where Rocque picked the Swedish shot rock off the button to give her team a two-point lead going into the 10th end. Canada then ran Sweden out of rocks for the 4-2 win.
"The way the score was we decided to keep it (more defensive)," said Rocque. "Sweden's a really good team, so we knew we'd have to keep it close."
Canada leads the women's standings at 4-0.
On the men's side, Winnipeg's Braden Calvert's rink improved to 3-1 with a 10-1 victory over the host Estonians.
