Homan eliminated at PointsBet Invitational after losing draw to the button

Rachel Homan’s third-seeded team was eliminated from the PointsBet Invitational on Friday after dropping a 7-6 decision to Kristie Moore’s sixth-seeded side.

Moore, who’s filling in for absent skip Casey Scheidegger, scored two points in the ninth end and held Homan to a single in the 10th.

Since traditional extra ends are not used at this event, Moore sealed the victory by finding the rings with her draw to the button after Homan’s throw was short of the paint.

Second-seeded Kaitlyn Lawes also qualified for the final four in the single-knockout competition by topping No. 10 Penny Barker 9-4.

Fifth-seeded Jennifer Jones advanced by outscoring No. 13 Selena Sturmay 11-9 and top-seeded Kerri Einarson doubled No. 8 Kelsey Rocque 10-5.

The men’s quarterfinal draw was scheduled for Friday afternoon. Play continues through Sunday at Willie O’Ree Place.
