GRANDE PRAIRIE, Alta. — Rachel Homan scored two for the win in the final frame to lift her Ottawa-based club to a 5-4 victory over South Korea’s Team Gim in their opening game of the HearingLife Tour Challenge on Tuesday night.

After giving up back-to-back single steals in the sixth and seventh ends to fall behind by one, Homan recovered to pull off a short runback double takeout for the decisive deuce.

Duncan added a single in the seventh and Fujisawa ran out of options in the eighth.

Sweden’s Team Wranå took two in the seventh and stole one in the eighth for a 6-5 come-from-behind victory over Canada’s Team Jones while Sweden’s Team Hasselborg scored three in the fourth and two in the seventh during a 6-2 decision over Germany’s Team Jentsch.
