Skip Eve Muirhead was left toasting a job well done as Scotland recorded their seventh consecutive victory thanks to a 7-1 domination of Russia at the World Women's Curling Championship in Canada.

The clash was a repeat of last November's European final, with Scotland keen to dish out some revenge.

And that is exactly what they did as they got off to a blistering start, scoring one in the first end, then stealing three in the second and one in the third to take a 5-0 lead.

The Scots came out in the second half with another single steal and when opposition skip Anna Sidorova was finally able to score with a draw to the house in the seventh end, Russia conceded.

"We played great," Muirhead said. "We got off to a good start. We played a good first end but she managed to cut us to just one and then in the second end we just piled the pressure on and she came up short with a draw to give us three. From then on, we had control of the game.

"You expect every game to go to last end, last stone, so we're always ready for that, but when you get a chance to finish off a game early, you’re going to take it every time."
