CALGARY — Canada’s Kerri Einarson lost a fourth straight game at the women’s world curling championship falling 6-2 to Germany on Monday.

At 1-5, Canada can’t afford any more losses if the host team is going to make the playoffs. Einarson was to face South Korea later Monday.

The top six teams at the conclusion of the round-robin make playoffs.

Up 4-2 after eight ends, Germany stole two points in the ninth when Einarson was heavy on a draw. The Canadians shook hands after that end.

Germany is competing with a three-person team because two members tested positive for COVID-19 before the tournament began.
