GANGNEUNG, Korea, Republic Of — Canada’s Kristen Streifel defeated Annmarie Dubberstein of the United States 9-3 on Thursday to lock up a berth in the Page playoff 3-4 game at the world junior curling championship.

Streifel and her Edmonton-based team opened with a deuce and had a 6-1 lead after four ends at the Gangneung Curling Centre. The teams shook hands after eight ends.
