Rachel Homan has captured her second career National title.
The Ottawa skip edged Winnipeg's Kerri Einarson 4-1 in the final Sunday at the fourth stop on the Grand Slam of Curling circuit.
The 29-year-old skip tied veteran Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg for most career championships in the women's series.
Homan opened the scoring with a single in the second end, before tacking on a score in two straight frames to go up 3-0. She added another in the sixth and never trailed.
Einarson, who won the National in 2016-17, broke the shutout with a single in the seventh end.
Homan, third Emma Miskew, second Joanne Courtney and lead Lisa Weagle earned $ 30,000 from the $ 250,000 total purse and padded their lead in the Cup standings with an additional 12 points.
