Jennifer Jones will face Rachel Homan in the Canadian women's curling championship final.

Jones defeated fellow-Manitoban Kate Cameron 12-7 in the semifinal Sunday to advance to the evening's championship game. 

Jones scored five points in the first end to control the game early. Cameron shook hands after the ninth end.

Homan beat Jones 7-5 in pool play and needed an extra end to defeat Jones 5-4 in a playoff game between the top two seeds.

Six-time champion Jones has said she'll retire from women's team curling at the end of this season.

Homan is attempting to win a fourth Scotties Tournament of Hearts, but her first since 2017. Her team lost three straight finals between 2019 and 2021.
