Homan advanced to the final after taking down Nina Roth of the United States 6-5 in an extra end. Fleury's rink doubled up Kerri Einarson's team, also of East St. Paul, 6-3.

Earlier Homan, ousted Edmonton's Laura Walker 5-3 in quarter-final action. The 2018 Olympic representative scored three in the third end and added singles in the fourth and fifth. The two skips shook hands after seven.
