Scotland misery in Canada goes on; Update.

SCOTLAND'S World Curling Championship hopes ended after two defeats inEdmonton yesterday.

Warwick Smith's reigning champions were beaten 6-1 by Finland in the morning session, after a four at the fourth end broke the scoreless deadlock.

That was the fourth defeat in six matches for a side who triumphed inMassachusetts last year.

A fifth loss came in the late evening session, with the United States winning 6-4.

Scotland had been in contention after their opening three matches, two of which they won, but four consecutive losses have left them 11th in the 12-team round-robin event.

Only the leading four countries advance to play-offs after 11 rounds of matches.
