SAINT JOHN, N.B. -- Canada's Rachel Homan is going for gold at the Ford Women's World Curling Championship.

Her Ottawa Curling Club team booked their ticket to Sunday's final with an 8-3 win over Switzerland's Binia Feltscher in a playoff game between the top two seeds.

The Canadians stole a point in the third, scored two in the fifth and scored three in the ninth when the Swiss shook hands.

The Swiss drop to Saturday afternoon's semifinal and meet the winner of a morning playoff game between Russia's Anna Sidorova and Ji-sun Kim of South Korea.

Homan will attempt to win Canada's first women's curling title since 2008 when Winnipeg's Jennifer Jones won gold in Vernon, B.C.

The South Koreans claimed the fourth and final playoff berth earlier with a 7-5 win over Sweden's Margaretha Sigfridsson in a tiebreaker.
