Homan's Canada Team Wins Scotties Tournament of Hearts... Again!

Rachel Homan's Canada team defeated Val Sweeting's Alberta rink 8-6 to win a second consecutive Scotties Tournament of Hearts on Sunday night.

The Ottawa team of Homan, lead Lisa Weagle, second Alison Kreviazuk and third Emma Miskew, defended the Canadian women's curling championship they won last year in Kingston.

At 13-0, they are the first since Linda Moore's rink in 1985 to go undefeated at the tournament.

Homan took early leads all week and did it again by posting three points in the second end, although Sweeting answered with a hit for two in the third.

Sweeting was a tad strong on a raise in the fourth and Homan came around the right side to hit for two. Alberta got one back in the fifth.

Canada was in trouble in the sixth when a Sweeting draw left Alberta with three stones near the button, but Homan scattered them with a hit to salvage one point.
