SAPPORO, Japan - The Chinese men's curling team beat Chinese Taipei 7-3 for their second victory in as many games at the Winter Asian Games here on Sunday.

Tied at 2-2 in the fifth end, China managed their hammer well after the mid-game break, taking one point each in the sixth and seventh to go 4-2 up.

Chinese Taipei earned a point in the eighth, but China sealed the victory after scoring three points in the ninth and forcing their opponents to give up the last end.

"We didn't play well at the beginning, so the competition once became intense. Actually, we planned to score two points in the ninth, but Chinese Taipei made mistakes, so we scored three," said Xu Xiaoming, the vice-skipper for China.

"We kept calm and we eventually won the match," he said.

Chinese Taipei player Liu Borkai also blamed mistakes for their defeat.

"Never make mistakes when playing against China. A minor fault would let them catch the winning chance," said Liu.

In women's matches in the morning session, South Korea thrashed Qatar 24-2, while Kazakhstan lost to Japan 17-3.
