Canada and Sweden claimed victories at the World Junior Curling Championships to ensure they will feature in the play-off stage of the women's competition in Aberdeen.

The two teams headed into the seventh session at Curl Aberdeen knowing a win would ensure progression from the pool phase.

Defending champions Sweden maintained their unbeaten record to date, as they saw off the challenge of hosts Scotland.

Led by skip Isabella Wranaa, Sweden were able to claim a 10-4 win over Scotland to record their seventh straight success.

"We want to be the top seed in both the semi-finals and the finals, so we need to finish first in the round robin," said Wranaa.

"It's always nice to have the hammer in the important games.

"We still need to focus in the next two games because we need to be the top seed and keep getting a feeling for the ice.

"It's important to keep playing good curling and get in a good mood for the play-off."
