Lauren Mann and her new-look Ottawa rink upset Winnipeg's Jennifer Jones in the championship game at the Stu Sells Toronto Tankard on Thanksgiving Monday.

Mann, third Kira Brunton, second Cheryl Kreviazuk and lead Karen Trines stole points in three straight ends to start the contest before stealing singles in the sixth and seven ends en route to the 7-1 rout.

The event actually took place in Waterloo, Ont., at the KW Granite Club.

The 35-year-old Mann has made two appearances at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts for Quebec in 2015 and 2017.

Jones played the weekend with just two other players - Jocelyn Peterman and Lisa Weagle - as regular third Kaitlyn Lawes returned home prior to the event. The full foursome won the Stu Sells Oakland Tankard, also played at the KW Granite, last weekend.

On the men's side of the draw, Toronto's Team John Epping defeated provincial rival Team Glenn Howard in the final, 3-2.

Epping scored a single in the 8th and final end to seal the victory.

Epping, third Ryan Fry, second Patrick Janssen (spare for Mat Camm) and lead Brent Laing went 6-1 in Kitchener-Waterloo.

Out West at the McKee Homes Fall Curling Classic in Airdrie, Alta., Edmonton's Team Ryan Jacques defeated Team Karsten Sturmay, also of Edmonton, in the final, 5-3.

Calgary's Team Kevin Koe played in their first event with two-time Olympic champion John Morris at second. The foursome won their first three games before dropping a quarterfinal matchup to Team Aaron Sluchinski, 6-4.

Earlier this week, the remaining games of a Saskatchewan women's qualifying event in Regina were called off after organizers became aware of someone who had recently tested positive for COVID-19 after entering the Highland Curling Club on Oct. 4.
