Britain, Japan to play for Olympic women’s curling gold


AP Sports Writer

BEIJING (AP) — Eve Muirhead scored four points in the second-to-last end of regulation and Britain beat defending Olympic champion Sweden 12-11 in an extra end to advance to the gold medal match in women’s curling. Britain will play in the final Sunday against Japan, which beat top-seeded Switzerland 8-6 two sheets over to clinch a medal for the second straight year. The British men are also hoping to bring the gold medal home. They play Sweden in the final Saturday. In a bonkers women’s semifinal session, Sweden and Japan both scored four-enders only to have their opponents come back with a three — and in Sweden’s case, also a four.
