Canada’s Kerri Einarson lost a fourth straight game at the women’s world curling championship falling 6-2 to Germany on Monday.

At 1-5, Canada can’t afford any more losses if the host team is going to make the playoffs. Einarson was to face South Korea later Monday.

  • Join Colleen Jones and Devin Heroux for ‘That Curling Show’ next Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET and Sunday at 2 p.m. ET at on CBC Olympics Twitter, CBC Olympics Facebook, and CBC Sports YouTube.

The top six teams at the conclusion of the round-robin make playoffs.

Up 4-2 after eight ends, Germany stole two points in the ninth when Einarson was heavy on a draw. The Canadians shook hands after that end.

Germany is competing with a three-person team because two members tested positive for COVID-19 before the tournament began.
