You can watch all the action on TSN at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt.

Homan cruised through the roundrobin with an 11-0 record to clinch top spot and a berth in the 1-2 Page Playoff Game. Then in their toughest game of the week, Homan's rink edged Manitoba's Chelsea Carey, 5-4 to advance directly to today's final.

Sweeting has taken a much tougher road to today's final. After finishing fourth in the roundrobin with an 8-3 mark, the Alberta team held on for an 8-7 win over Stefanie Lawton of Saskatchewan in Saturday's 3-4 Page Playoff Game. Later in the day, she needed a draw to the button for a 6-5 victory over Carey's Manitoba rink in the semifinal.

In the roundrobin, Team Canada rolled to a 10-5 win over Alberta in Draw 8 on Tuesday.

The winner will represent Canada at the Ford World Women's Championships in Saint John, New Brunswick from March 15-23.
