"It's definitely the most money I've ever played for, for one curling shot," said Homan. "Jones gave us a run for our money… literally. It was a good game and we're pretty excited to take home this cheque from Pinty's."
After this afternoon's game, Manitoba's Jennifer Jones and her world No. 1-ranked team of Kaitlyn Lawes, Jill Officer, and Dawn McEwen walked away with a weekend total of $29,500 in prize money.
Team Homan started off strong, making an angle raise takeout with the hammer to win the game's opening skin of $2,000. Skip Rachel Homan made another brilliant angle raise takeout – with third Emma Miskew making a terrific line call – to steal the second skin and double their total. After a slow start, a solid third end performance from Team Jones put them on the board with a $3,000 skin. With each team winning one skin over the next two ends, the game was tied at $7,000 going into the 6th end. Homan made another brilliant last rock shot to win the $6,000 skin and force Team Jones into a do-or-die position. The all-important seventh end saw Team Jones narrowly force a carry-over to stay alive. It all came down to the final end, with Rachel Homan making a soft touch tap back to score two and capture the championship.
