Courtney Smith and Anton Hood have won two of their first four games at the world mixed doubles curling championships in Aberdeen.
It leaves the Maniototo pair mid-table in Group B at the championships, which double as a potential Olympic qualifier.
They claimed a 7-6 win over both England and Estonia, notably having to win an extra end to break a deadlock against the former.
However, they were well-beaten by Norway 10-1, while an early lead was not enough to overcome Switzerland, which beat the Kiwis 5-3.
It has a further four group matches left.
The championships are being held in a bubble and 20 teams from around the world are present.
Seven direct qualifying spots for next year’s Beijing Winter Olympics are available.
