The four-member Korean team led by skip Kim Eun-jung on Thursday beat Canada 8-6 in the women's round robin session 2 at Gangneung Curling Center.

While Korea led 1-0 through two ends, the Canadians stormed out in the third, picking up three points to jump into the lead, 3-1.

A "burned rock" foul in the women's match between Canada and Denmark, would not be swept away very easily Friday. "It doesn't look good on you".

Denmark, however, later tied the score and emerged with a 9-8 victory in overtime.

Still searching for their first win at the 2018 Winter Olympics, Rachel Homan and her team reportedly held a players-only meeting, according to Devin Heroux of the CBC.

"But it's the Olympics and you have to make every rock and its nerve wracking to be 0-2 and facing 0-3 so anyone can miss it". After the match, Danish skip Madeleine Dupont said she disagreed with Homan's decision. But her draw was well short of the house, allowing Denmark to steal one.

When burned stones occur, the captain, or skip, of the opposing team has three choices.

The loss dropped Canada to the cellar of the standings, now being the only team without a win.

Gallant said he always thought they could win a medal, but that they'll be taking it game by game.

Canada is the defending Olympic champion. She opened the tournament Thursday with losses against South Korea and Sweden.

"We just want to go out and play each game as it comes", Gallant said.
