In their seventh game Team Scotland faced Denmark and had changed the line up, Karen Addison was playing third stones, Lyndsay second stones and taking the head for Gail Munro's shots.
And for the first half of the game the new line up seemed to be working, the team were making more shots than in previous games and they led by one shot after five ends. They held on to that lead till end eight, Gail elected for a tap back on her own stone rather than hitting a Danish stone. She didn't lie shot and Denmark had a draw for two.
Scotland took a shot in the ninth to tie the game but went into the final end without last stone, Gail had to draw with her last stone it ran a couple of inches too far, Denmark won the game 7/6.
Team Scotland may have to think again.
And the Chinese wagon keeps rolling on they got their seventh win beating the USA 10/1.
