Calgary’s Kevin Koe scored a single in an extra end to beat Winnipeg’s Mike McEwen 5-4 on Saturday night in the Players’ Championship semifinal.

Koe, the only men’s skip to go undefeated through round-robin play at the Grand Slam of Curling tournament, will face world champion Niklas Edin of Sweden in Sunday’s final.

Edin beat Brad Gushue of St. John’s, N.L., in Saturday night’s other semifinal. The game was a rematch of the world championship final one week ago in Las Vegas, which Edin won 7-3.

Edin scored a single in the eighth end, breaking a 4-4 tie for Saturday night’s victory.

Edin had defeated Scotland’s Kyle Smith in Saturday afternoon’s quarter-final match. Koe started his day by edging Toronto’s John Epping in the quarters.
