It was a good day for Brad Jacobs and his Sault Ste. Marie rink in the Ice Cube Curling Center, as they moved Canada up to 3-2 in the round robin by beating Denmark by a score of 7-6.

Playing in front of a pretty raucous crowd, Jacobs defeated Danish skip Rasmus Stjerne to give the Canadians their second straight victory in as many days, and dropping Denmark's record to 2-3.

It was a cerebral match from the beginning, with both teams going into the 10th end tied at six, but Jacobs' utilized the hammer to win it for the Canucks.

There was barely any separation between the teams, and when it appeared that Canada finally created a small gulf, the Danes would counter with singles.

Denmark finally got their breakthrough in the ninth, closing the distance with a deuce to knot things at six-all, before Jacobs sealed the win.

Now sitting at 3-2, Canada faces Norway on Friday.

In other games, Russia defeated Switzerland 7-6, Sweden beat Norway 5-4, and Great Britain topped the Americans 5-3.
