SAINT JOHN, N.B. - Rachel rocks — at least she does again.

After a wobbly week at times here in New Brunswick at Harbour Station’s Ford World Women’s Curling Championship — which is weird to say with a 10-1 round-robin record — Homan and her Ottawa crew of lead Lisa Weagle, second Alison Kreviazuk, and third Emma Miskew have rounded into form just in time for the playoffs.

And a dominant performance against the only team to get the better of Canada this week — Binia Feltscher-Beeli’s Flims, Switzerland, team — in Friday’s one-two Page playoff game, was an exclamation mark.

That was accentuated by Homan’s stone-cold hit and stick for three in the ninth to make it an 8-3 formality, but it was Canada that controlled the game from hack to house. Now it’s punched a ticket to Sunday night’s final.

But first, it’s a waiting game.
