Kerri Einarson wins second straight Canadian women's curling championship.

Kerri Einarson won a second straight Canadian women's curling championship with a 9-7 win over Ontario's Rachel Homan on Sunday.

 

Einarson, third Val Sweeting, second Shannon Birchard and lead Briane Meilleur from Manitoba's Gimli Curling Club defeated Homan in the Scotties Tournament of Hearts final for the second time in as many years.

 

Einarson's team was the first to repeat since Homan in 2013 and 2014.

Einarson had to make a draw with her final shot in an extra end to claim her first championship in Moose Jaw.

 

The skip didn't have to throw her final stone Sunday in Calgary.

 

Einarson lay two counters in the rings when Homan was too deep on an attempted freeze.
