China misses their last shot! Steal of 1 for Jacobs! Tie game!

they have to hurry or they will run out of time and I think that is an automatic loss

Whew!!!
Curling at its best.
Way to go guys.

Easily their best game of the tournament. Credit to that Chinese team, which also curled an excellent game.

Jacobs has really made some big shots these last few games. Have to like their chances going into the medal round. Either way, they've got a 75% chance at a medal of some kind.
