It took longer than expected, but Jennifer Jones's rink beat the United States in women's curling on Sunday.

The Americans consistently matched the Canadians throughout the match and scored a single in the 10th end to tie the match at 6-6.

In the extra end, Jones used the hammer to score one, earning the win 7-6.

The match was meaningless in terms of advancing to the medal round — Canada has already secured a spot in one of the two women's curling semi-finals, while the Americans have struggled badly in Sochi and sit in last place —but it was a match the Canadians were determined to win. 

Canada has now improved to a perfect 8-0 record in round-robin action, where the United States falls to 1-7. 

Canada's final round-robin match is on Monday against South Korea.
