The USA reached the Titlis Mountain Glacier World Women's Curling Championship Page Play-offs after winning the final tie-breaker game 7-4 against Switzerland.
This win means that they will face Canada in the 3v4 Page Play-off which takes place on Saturday afternoon.
In a tight game, the USA never lost the lead after taking one point in the first end. In the sixth end they extended their lead when they scored two points to earn a 4-2 lead.
The USA continued their good form by stealing another two single points in the next two ends, before Switzerland hit back with two points in the ninth end to narrow the gap to 6-4.
