The British quartet needed an extra end to clinch the game 8-7.

However, they looked down and out with just two ends remaining in regulation play.

They trailed 6-2 to the Americans.

Skip Aileen Neilson inspired her team to a dramatic seventh end push when they won five shots to surge ahead.

However, the USA responded with a single shot in the final end to take the match into an extra end.

The USA had led 5-1 after four end and looked to be cruising to victory.

Moray curlers Jim Gault and Ewan Gregor played their part in the win, with Angie Malone coming into the side in place of Bob McPherson.

Team GB can seal their place in the last four with victory over China later today. The match starts at 11.30am and is live on Channel 4.
