Saskatoon's Stefanie Lawton won the women's title at the Players' Championship on Saturday with a 7-3 victory over Winnipeg's Cathy Overton-Clapham in seven ends.
Lawton scored three points in the sixth end and two points in the seventh to pull away from Overton-Clapham, who had a 3-2 lead after the fifth.
Overton-Clapham's rink had dominated the tournament, finishing first in the round robin of the eight-team event with a record of 6-1.
Lawton had made the final by defeating Winnipeg's Jennifer Jones in the semi-final, while Overton-Clapham had dispatched Sherry Middaugh of Coldwater, Ont., in the other semi.
In men's semi-final play, Toronto's John Epping upset Edmonton's Kevin Martin 6-4.
Trailing 4-2 in the seventh end, a missed hit by Martin allowed Epping to score three and take the lead.
In the final end, Martin had a tough double shot for two, which didn't curl enough to give Epping the steal for the win.
Glenn Howard of Coldwater, Ont., advanced to the final with a 7-3 win over Winnipeg's Mike McEwen.
Howard's win clinched the Capital One Cup and the $50,000 top-prize winnings.
Epping and Howard will play in the tournament's final on Sunday.
