SOCHI, Russia -- Canadian skip Corryn Brown dropped a 3-2 decision to Hannah Fleming of Scotland on Friday at the world junior curling championship.

The rinks were tied at two heading into the final end at the Ice Cube Curling Center. Fleming attempted a double-takeout for the win but missed slightly, leaving rocks for each team just touching the eight-foot.

The measurement went to Scotland, which remains undefeated in the round robin while Canada fell to 0-2. Brown's team from Kamloops, B.C., opened the tournament with a 9-1 loss to Denmark.

"It was definitely a better game than our game yesterday," said Brown. "So we'll take that and we'll learn a lot from that game. Can't ask for more than coming to down a measure.

"The girls played really well and it was definitely better than last game."

Canada will play Russia's Alina Kovaleva on Saturday.

In men's play, Matt Dunstone's Winnipeg team had the day off after winning two games on Thursday. His rink will return to the ice Saturday morning against Scotland's Kyle Smith.
