That was the nail in the coffin. I like Manitoba's odds if they force Rachel to draw against that stone that was top 4 foot.

Joanne played really well.


She may have. But her missed peel in the tenth just about cost them.

Best team won. By definition Team Homan is the best team in Canada. Hi-Ho, off to the World's they go.

This game proves that percentages mean nothing. It`s what shots you make. Homan outshot Englot by 15%. Close game because Englot made the right ones.

If she made the guard I think you would have seen Rachel try and draw to sit shot other wise she would have most likely been drawing against 2 on her last and she wouldn't have liked that

Usually they show the medal presentations, instead we get aimless rambling about the Scotties from Vic.

Actually, yes . I'm on a tablet right now and its acting up and didn't display that.

Sorry if I'm sounding bitter but I was so much hoping for michele tonight. She more than likely won't get another chance and Rachel will have many more years at the top and many more chances to win.

But , really congrats to them , they will be great reps and congrats to you as a fan. Happy for you and all their fans

Overall this final day jus leads a bad feeling on me given tis result and what happened earlier with krista and northern Ontario.

Apologies to those that consider this non-curling.

Pressure makes diamonds. Team Homan won the only game that was a true 'must win' between them and Manitoba. Simply put Rachel made more big shots then Michelle did tonight. Both were great but Michelle faced much tougher shots tonight then she did in the other two games. There is a reason Team Homan is #1 ranked in the world. Quite happy our best chance for world gold is moving forward.

World ranking and previous results confirm they are the best team regardless of whether they won this game or not. The fact they pulled it out just added to their stellar record. Curling is not designed for any one team to dominate all events and games.

The criticism of Team Homan on this site gets silly, from the "too aggressive" thread to the pointless "make Rachel draw" ideas, etc etc. Seriously now, this is a great team who play like the top men's teams do and have pushed the envelope on what women are capable of. The stat on Rachel being the youngest ( easily ) to win three Scotties tells the story, look at all the legends on the list.

Both teams can be proud of their effort it was one of the best woman's finals I've ever seen. Somebody had to lose.

Well said. Although, I do remember enjoying a closely battled final a few years back when Sask won. Both were great games.Last years was also a great one.

The way this game evolved it might as well have been determined by a coin toss, it was that close. A quarter inch on a number of different shots and the outcome could have been different. Excellent game.

Fantastic final! for a change I was torn between wanting a Homan ( Jo-Anne's 1st) and an Englot (Michelle's 1st)...

..some brilliant shots by both teams, coming down to the last rock in 11, who could ask for more.

I know we'll be well repped at the Worlds.

Great final.
Very enjoyable to watch - very captivating, coming down to last rock in extra end...

Congratulations to both teams.

I didnt criticize team homan in any way so i really dont know what your poblem is.

quite frankly im well aware that they are world number one and all that but i dont care about their world ranking or or whether or not they are the youngest team to win 3 times. good for them. however it doesnt change my mind about them and it didnt need to be brought up.

also doesnt change the fact that im disappointed in how it ended.

That was an awesome final! Really good curling from both teams. I was a little disappointed MB didn't win just because I'm a Manitoban. Englot's team did amazingly well, and really surprised me mostly because I was ignorant of her past success and didn't think that Kristy McDonalds old team would really do that well at the Scotties. I was pretty impressed with Kate Cameron, she is going to be around for awhile I'm guessing. Hard to be too disappointed with Homan representing Canada at the worlds... Despite what the over analysis and nit picking you hear about them would have you believe they are a great team, and seem to be good ambassadors for the sport. Genuine excitement and happiness from the whole rink (including Rachel) when they won. I hope they bring home a gold at worlds.

Wasn't sure after the Manitoba playdown whether the Englot team just had a great week or were really that strong a team.

After the Scotties it is pretty clear this team has what it takes to potentially win at the highest level. Very solid all the way up the line-up.

Kate Cameron appears to me to now be the premier 3rd in the game. Her intensity, strategy and her shot-making really make her a force in the women's game.

Michelle at 53 showed she really has what it takes. Potentially only weakness might be the 'high hard one', however, her experience limits how many of those she has to throw.

This performance should ensure them a spot in 'The Roar'. As an Albertan, I will be cheering for others, but without a doubt the Englot team will be a factor in the outcome based on their performance.

I will be pulling for Rachael and her team at the World's. I have a feeling the scare that the Englot team put into them may help them in bringing the World Championship back to Canada.

Just wondering what the rules are as per the Scotties in 2018.

If Homan is lucky or good enough to win the trials in Ottawa and is the team to represent Canada at the winter Olympics, which team represents team Canada at the Scotties?
