THE gold medal hopes of Team GB were blown away by Paralymic wheelchair curling favourites Russia.
A disastous fourth end when the hosts took seven shots - a Paralympic record for one end - did all the damage.
Team GB had trailed 4-3 after three ends and looked well placed to challenge for the win.
Russia had stolen a shot in the first end and extended their lead to 4-0 after just two ends.
However, Team GB skip Aileen Neilson played a fantastic last shot in the third end to take out a Russian stone and lie three shots.
Russia played a great fourth end to amass their seven shot hail and lead 11-3 at the midway point.
The host nation stole another shot against the head in the next end to lead 12-3.
The British rink got some pride back in the sixth end when they notched a single shot.
Clinical Russia continued to knock out any British stones in the penultimate end as they closed out the match 13-4, with the final end not required.
Moray curlers Gregor Ewan and Jim Gault, with team-mates Angie Malone and Bob McPherson, will now look to regroup ahead of the bronze medal match at 11.30am today against China, who lost 5-4 to Canada in the other semi-final.
Skip Aileen Neilson vowed the team would come back fighting for that match.
