Englot, third Kate Cameron, second Leslie Wilson and lead Raunora Westcott will play in their first Scotties Tournament of Hearts final on Sunday.
At 53, Englot would be the oldest skip to win it.
Homan, a two-time Canadian champion, must win Saturday evening’s semifinal to gain a rematch and a chance to win a third crown.
Manitoba and Ontario had 10-1 records in the preliminary round.
Defending champion Chelsea Carey (9-2) and Northern Ontario’s Krista McCarville (8-3) meet in a playoff between the third and fourth seeds Saturday afternoon. The winner meets Homan in the semi, while the loser plays for third place on Sunday.
