Curling controversy: 'Burned rock' fans flames during fiery match

Curling controversy: 'Burned rock' fans flames during fiery match

Curling - Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics - Women's Round Robin - Denmark v Canada - Gangneung Curling Center - Gangneung, South Korea - February 16, 2018 - Madeleine Dupont, Denise Dupont, Julie Hogh and Mathilde Halse of Denmark celebrate after beating Canada. In the eighth end, Ulsrud was light in an attempted draw to the eight foot and forced Canada to steal a point.

A "burned rock" foul in the women's match between Canada and Denmark, would not be swept away very easily Friday.

The home team again took the lead by adding one and three more points for the eighth and ninth ends.

"I think that was a rash move to take it off", CBC commentator and Olympic gold medallist Joan McCusker said during the broadcast. "It doesn't look good on you".

Denmark tied the score in the final end, forcing the game into overtime. Denmark sat shot rock with the stone touching the button, and a pair of guards outside the top of the house.

In Canada's win over Norway, there were two key moments in the game.

Denmark (1-2), stole a single in the 11th after Homan wrecked her last stone, ending a back-and-forth matchup between last-place teams.

"But it's the Olympics and you have to make every rock and its nerve wracking to be 0-2 and facing 0-3 so anyone can miss it". While Canada's takeout shots were precise, the USA team missed several shots early in the game.

Homan said she was within her rights and was following the rules.

When burned stones occur, the captain, or skip, of the opposing team has three choices.

Japan leads the tournament with a record of three wins and zero losses. For the first time ever a Canadian team at the Olympic Winter Games is 0-2 in the Olympic curling tournament. "He needed to play like that to keep them in the game, and he did, and unfortunately for us we just had too many misses in the second half of the game".

Canada plays the United States on Saturday.
