PERTH, Scotland -- Canada's Trish Paulson kept her playoff hopes alive Wednesday at the WCF world junior women's curling championship.

Paulson, from Saskatoon, handed Russia's Anna Sidorova her first loss of the week. The Canadian skip improved to 3-4 with a 6-3 win.

On the men's side, Canada's Braeden Moskowy kept rolling with a pair of victories. He's now won five in a row after losing his first three.

A pair of steals by Paulson -- a single in the sixth and a deuce in the ninth -- turned the tables in favour of the Canadians.

"When we have a goal in mind and when we have to win, we play great," Paulson said. "We showed that we're able to play here, so if we keep playing like that we've still got a chance for the playoffs."

The loss dropped Sidorova into a first-place tie with Scotland at 7-1. Sweden is alone in second at 5-2, followed by the United States at 5-3.

Paulson is tied with Norway, Japan and Switzerland at 3-4. She concludes the round robin today with games against the United States and Scotland.

In men's action, Moskowy, from Regina, scored an 11-7 win over Finland and beat China 7-2.

The Canadians (5-3) are tied for third with Norway and Scotland.

Canada plays the Czech Republic today in its final round-robin game.
