Despite the team’s loss, they were able to play two more teams on Saturday and Sunday to determine where, exactly, in the standings they would fall.  

They were placed in a bracket alongside the Netherlands, Germany, and Great Britain, and were matched up against the British. 

Their second tie also did not go as planned. They dropped two of their three matches against the U.K., leading them to play one last match on Sunday to determine whether they’d finish in seventh or eighth place. 

With two tough losses to start the knock-out round, Team Canada finally came out with a victory on the final day. The team got the best of Germany in three matches to avoid finishing in eighth place.
