Well, what can you say, in their eighth game Scotland went out on to the ice against Japan on a record of four wins and four losses to Scotland's one win.
It just wasn't working, the team may well be down after what has happened this week, who can tell? But the scoreline tells the story, Japan stole singles in ends three, six and seven, Scotland could put only two singles on the board.
Japan got two in the ninth and Scotland had had enough, they shook hands on a scoreline of 7/2 to Japan.
There's always tomorrow, Italy and the Czech Republic.
