SAINT JOHN, N.B. - After hitting a Swiss speedbump Sunday, and a few Latvian and German blips along the way, Canada's Rachel Homan slid comfortably into the one-two Page playoff game Friday night at the world women's curling championship.

And they'll have hammer to boot.

Homan and her lead Lisa Weagle, second Alison Kreviazuk and third Emma Miskew finished atop the round-robin standings with a 10-1 record after a 9-6 win over the co-favoured Swedes Thursday night.

Homan broke open a 3-3 affair at the break, making a deuce in six, forcing a tough single in seven and then playing a perfect end in eight to score three and then ran the Swedes out of rocks to earn top seed.

And it is the Swiss and Binia Feltscher who will be the opposition for Homan Friday night.
