GANGNEUNG, South Korea - Canada has reached the playoffs at the world women's curling championship - but Jennifer Jones is far from satisfied.
Denmark's Angelina Jensen scored two in the ninth end before stealing two more in the 10th to earn a come-from-behind 7-5 win over Jennifer Jones in Draw 13 action Wednesday.
Jones, with her second loss in three games, and Jensen are tied for second at 7-2 after Denmark dropped a 7-4 decision to the host Koreans later Wednesday in Draw 14 play. China's Bingyu Wang leads the standings at 8-1, while Sweden's Anette Norberg is fourth at 6-3.
Wang can finish no worse than third in the round-robin following a Draw 13 win over Germany. Jensen's victory over Canada earned her a playoff spot, and Jones is also in the mix despite squandering a two-point lead against Denmark.
Trailing 5-3 in the ninth end, Danish fourth Madeleine Dupont drew to the back of the four-foot for two points to tie the game. Then, with Canada lying shot stone in the 10th, Danish third Denise Dupont made a perfect hit to leave Denmark lying one.
Jones came up slightly short on a draw with her first shot of the end, and was left with a tricky angle raise for the win. She hit the stone too thin, and the rock went spinning out of the house to give Denmark the victory.
