The U.S. team never trailed until the final end of the game, scoring one point in each of the first, second and fourth ends to take a 3-1 lead at the midway point.
The Hamiltons then came back to the ice for a North American showdown against Canada, losing 6-4 while many in the crowd were focused two sheets over, where South Korea dropped a close game to China 8-7.
Becca and Matt Hamilton aren't done competing, as they will go up against Canada in their second match of the day, which will start at 5:05 a.m.
Down 7-6 in the eighth and final end, Canada was lying two when Morris bumped his team's rocks out of position while at the same time promoting a Norwegian stone - a mistake the Canadians would be unable to recover from as their opponents stole two to seal the win.
Before competition began, Becca said the siblings were excited to get on the ice first for the United States.
Playing the power play option in the fifth in hopes of drumming up more offense, the Hamiltons instead had even more mistakes, and couldn't even finish with a point in the end. "We'll come back stronger".
"There were probably three key shots in the later ends that I didn't execute. that was the turning point of that game", the 39-year-old from Ottawa said following the morning draw. Besides mixed doubles, Becca and Matt are on the women's and men's teams. There are eight ends per game, and each team throws five stones per end - unlike regular curling, in which teams throw eight stones and play 10 ends. Can I get a #HamFam?! She won her gold playing third with Jennifer Jones in '14.
"I think it's fantastic".
"It was a really awesome atmosphere", said Morris.
The tournament opens up with Team USA taking on the Olympic Athletes of Russian Federation. "They're defending world champs, so hats off to them".
