It was a shot Rachel Homan had played countless times before, a shot that would have put her into the gold-medal game at the world women’s curling championship.

However, the Ottawa CC skip jammed on a double-takeout, allowing Eve Muirhead to steal one for an 8-7 win in the semifinal Saturday in Riga, Latvia. Muirhead will meet Margaretha Sigfridsson of Sweden in the final Sunday (8 a.m. ET, TSN). Sweden beat Scotland 7-5 in the 1-2 playoff game Friday to gain the final.
