You knew it had to end sometime. After 15 straight wins, dating back to the opening draw of the Scotties Tournament of Hearts, Rachel Homan and her rink of Emma Miskew, Alison Kreviazuk and Lisa Weagle have finally suffered a loss, dropping an 8-2 decision to Switzerland at the Ford World Championships.

Team Homan fell victim to their own poor shooting, combined with several key shots by Swiss skip Binia Feltscher, to fall to 2-1 ar the Ford World Championships, while the Swiss improved to 3-0 along with the United States who pummelled Denmark 13-2 in six ends.

Despite trailing 4-2 after five ends, Homan and company were still confident they could play themselves back in the game. A Swiss steal of one in the sixth and a miissed raise takeout attempt by Homan to allow Switzerland to steal two more in the seventh proved too much for the Canadian foursome to overcome.

After the Swiss extended their lead to six points with another steal in the eighth, there was nothing left to do but shake hands.

Team Homan will be looking to bounce back against Denmark in Monday's afternoon draw before taking on the undeated American team Monday evening.
