Kelowna's Kelly Scott accomplished what she wanted through the round robin portion of the Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Kingston, ON.
She qualified for the playoffs.
Scott now gets a shot at redemption when she takes on defending champion Heather Nedohin in Saturday's sudden death quarter-final.
It was Nedohin who denied Scott a third national title a year ago, beating the Kelowna foursome in last year's title game.
Scott (8-3) secured third spot and last rock advantage to open the quarter-final with a 9-5 victory over Quebec in the final round-robin game Friday evening while Nedohin (7-4) fell 6-5 to Ontario.
The two rinks enter the quarter-final heading in opposite directions.
After struggling early, Scott has won five in a row while Nedohin, who looked unbeatable early in the week, limps in after going 1-4 over the final three days.
Scott's last loss was a 7-5 defeat at the hands of Nedohin Tuesday night.
Manitoba's Jennifer Jones rolled through round robin a perfect 11-0, the first skip to accomplish the feat since Linda Moore did it 28 years ago.
Jones will take on Ontario in Saturday night's one-two playoff game.
The winner of that game will advance straight to the final while the loser will battle with winner of the Scott-Nedohin game in Sunday's morning's semi-final.
