The win was Homan's first at the Tour Challenge and eighth overall on the Grand Slam of Curling circuit. Sunday's match was also Homan's second straight appearance in a Grand Slam final — she lost to Sweden's Anna Hasselborg two weeks ago at the Masters.

It was Fleury's second time competing in a championship match at a Grand Slam event.

Later Sunday, Brad Jacobs of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., scored a deuce in the eighth end to slip past Edmonton's Brendan Bottcher for a 6-5 win in the men's final.

It is Jacobs's fourth title on the Grand Slam of Curling tour.
