Scotland's David Murdoch scored five stones in the eighth end to defeat Team USA's John Shuster 9-4 on Sunday at Edmonton, Alberta, dropping the Americans to 1-2 in the World Men's Championship round-robin standings.

The match was tied 4-4 before key mistakes by the U.S. left the Scots with five stones in scoring position, ending the contest.

Shuster and Duluth Curling Club teammates Tyler George, John Landsteiner and Joe Polo, as well as Matt Hamilton of McFarland, Wis., lost 7-4 to Switzerland late Saturday in a similar situation after the match was tied 3-3 through six ends.

The U.S. resumes action today against Italy and Canada. The Canadian match will be televised at 7 p.m. by NBC Sports Network.
