WINNIPEG - Manitoba's Jennifer Jones took care of the final mission before advancing to the final Thursday.

Jones eliminated Alberta's Heather Nedohin 6-5 before 6,644 fans at MTS Centre to finish clearly in first place at the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings Canadian Curling Trials with a 6-1 record. That means she will get both the hammer and choice of rocks in the women's final, to be played Saturday at 6:30 p.m.

Meanwhile, Ontario's reigning Canadian champion Rachel Homan sunk Saskatchewan's Stefanie Lawton 6-5 to post a 4-3 mark. Although Homan finished tied with Manitoba's Chelsea Carey and Ontario's Sherry Middaugh, she got awarded second place because she was 2-0 against the others.

Homan advances to Friday's semifinal at 6:30 p.m., where she will play the winner of the tie-breaker between Carey and Middaugh on Friday at 1:30 p.m.

Middaugh downed Carey 7-6 to spoil her chances of securing second spot.
