NORTH BATTLEFORD, Sask. — Toronto’s John Ep­ping made quick work of Swe­den’s Niklas Edin to earn a spot in the Cana­dian Open fi­nal. Ep­ping scored four in the first end and was up 9-1 when the two skips shook hands af­ter only five ends in their semi­fi­nal on Satur­day.

On the women’s side, it’ll be Ot­tawa’s Rachel Ho­man go­ing for her sec­ond Cana­dian Open title against Switzer­land’s Sil­vana Tir­in­zoni.
