Scotland and Canada won the men's and women's titles respectively as the World Junior Curling Championships concluded in Copenhagen today.

The United States were left disappointed in both gold medal games, with the men going down 6-4 to the Scots at the Taarnby Curling Club after the Canadian women had triumphed 7-4 in Denmark's capital.

In the men's final, Scotland's team of skip Bruce Mouat, Bobby Lammie, Gregor Cannon and Angus Dowell controlled proceedings from the outset, scoring two in the second end after the first was blanked.

The Americans were forced to draw for a single point in end three and Scotland would never give up their advantage, scoring two more points in end four to lead 4-1 before the US ran out of stones in the tenth.

"I feel a lot more relaxed than I thought I was going to be," said Mouat.

"I was quite happy in that game, I went through an emotional roller-coaster in the play-off and it couldn't have been much worse than that, but I was quite chilled.

"We controlled that game from the start and that probably contributed to how I felt.

"Making the two in the second end and forcing the one in the third, after that it was easier."

In the bronze medal match, Canada triumphed with an 8-4 win over Switzerland.

The women's final began with the US taking an early 1-0 lead in the second end, but Canada made the first real breakthrough when skip Mary Fay drew her final stone in end three to earn a 2-1 advantage.

In the fourth the Americans could only draw level before Canada blanked the fifth to make it 2-2 at the break.

Another draw for two points by Canada's Fay in the sixth end gave her a 4-2 lead, but the Americans scored two points of their own in the seventh end to bring the score level again.

Canada went back in front with another two, however, and when US skip Cory Christensen wrecked with her last attempt in the ninth end, Canada stole one point to take a decisive 7-4 lead.

"It feels amazing to have won this with my best friends, it's surreal and hasn't sunk in yet, and I'm so proud of my team for all their hard work," said Fay, who won alongside Kristin Clarke, Karlee Burgess and Janique LeBlanc.

"Last year we lost the gold medal game at the Canada Winter Games and we learnt so much from that - we've been able to take that experience forward and we've also learned the importance of just enjoying the game.

"So we wanted to have fun."

South Korea beat Hungary 8-4 for the bronze medal.

Next year's Championships will be held in Pyeongchang, Korea's 2018 Winter Olympics host.
