Scotland made a disappointing start to the Women's World Curling Championships after losing their first round-robin match 10-4 to Japan.
Sophie Jackson's rink, who qualified after beating Eve Muirhead's team to win the Scottish Championship last month, were 5-0 down after four ends.
They did rally in the fifth but endured a horrible sixth end to fall 9-2 behind, before ultimately conceding after the eighth.
The Scots face Canada on Tuesday.
That match will be streamed live on the BBC Sport website from 12:45 GMT.
