Canadian skip Brad Jacobs led his Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., rink to a 10-4 win Friday over Norway in round-robin play at the Sochi Olympics.

The teams were tied 3-3 heading into the seventh end, before the Canadian squad scored four with the hammer to take a solid lead over Thomas Ulsrud's rink.

Jacobs finished Norway off by scoring three with the hammer in the ninth.

"We hung in there," Jacobs told CBC Sports. "We stuck with it and we finished really well. It was not necessarily the best start but the best finish"

With the win, Canada improved its record to 4-2, good for fourth in the overall standings at the time the game ended.

Canada's next game is against Great Britain on Saturday.

In other games, USA beat Germany 8-5 and Sweden edged China 6-5.
