CONCEPTION BAY SOUTH, N.L. — Ottawa's Rachel Homan has knocked off defending champion Jennifer Jones to earn her place back in the National final.

Homan, the 2015-16 champion, toppled the Winnipeg skip 6-2 on Saturday in the semifinal at the fourth stop on the Grand Slam of Curling circuit.

Homan scored three in the second end and never trailed, with the two former champions shaking hands after seven ends.

Winnipeg's Kerri Einarson, who won the National in 2016-17, beat Switzerland's Silvana Tirinzoni 8-3 to get back into the championship draw.

The men's final will be an all-Scotland matchup with defending champion Bruce Mouat facing Ross Paterson.

Both Scottish skips needed to go the disance for their spots in the final.

Mouat scored two in the eighth end to come from behind and edge Calgary's Kevin Koe 6-5, while Paterson used an extra end to take a 7-6 victory over Glenn Howard of Penetanguishe, Ont.

The championship draws are set for Sunday.
