MONTREAL Yet another contender climbed into the ring and threw everything it had at the defending champ.

But the Canadian womens curling championship ended the way it began, and the way it went every single day at the Maurice Richard Arena: with Rachel Homans Team Canada standing over a fallen opponent.

Homan became the first team in 29 years to go undefeated in winning the Scotties Tournament of Hearts, the final punch an 8-6 knockout of Albertas Val Sweeting in Sunday nights final.

Its unbelievable, an elated Homan, just 24, said as the traditional bagpipes wailed around her, moments after the win. We ran the table. Its an unbelievable feeling. My teammates... I cant be more proud of them. To be repeat champions, its something that were crazy-proud of. Its hard to believe right now.
