SAINT JOHN, N.B. - Canada's Rachel Homan won her second in a row to open the Ford Women's World Curling Championship with an 8-4 victory over the Czech Republic on Sunday.

The Ottawa team joined Sweden at 2-0 after the morning draw and will face Switzerland's Binia Feltscher at night.

The Canadians stole two points in the second end and scored two in the fourth and seventh to take control of the game against the Czechs. When Homan scored two in the ninth, the Czechs shook hands.

The Homan rink won the bronze medal at last year's world championship in Latvia.
