Cait Flannery's U.S. women's team finished eighth at the World Junior Championships after a 9-5 loss to Norway Friday in Liverpool, Nova Scotia.

Flannery's team, which includes teammates Lexi Lanigan and Rebecca Miles of Duluth, scored a single in the second end but quickly fell behind after Maia Ramsfjell's team scored a deuce in the third and then stole three points in the fourth end.

The U.S. finished 2-7 to place in the bottom three in the standings and puts the Americans in a relegation situation for next year's competition unless the 2020 host is among the ranked countries above them, which would free up an additional spot and only relegate Japan (2-7) and Scotland (1-8).
