Nova Scotia’s women’s curling team will be leaving Red Deer with some hardware.
The team – comprised of Taylour Stevens, Cassidy Currie, Cate Fitzgerald and skip Cally Moore — defeated Team New Brunswick on Saturday to take home bronze at the Canada Games.
Team Moore also defeated British Columbia, Northwest Territories, Prince Edward Island, and Saskatchewan on two different occasions en route to the bronze.
After the victory, the team collectively called the win a proud moment.
“It means everything,” Cally Moore said after the match. “We’ve worked so hard. Obviously our goal was to get gold but ending it off with a win for bronze is always great.
“We came off happy, we’re in good spirits and it means everything to bring home some sort of hardware for Nova Scotia.”
The bronze was Team Nova Scotia’s 10th medal of the 2019 Canada Games.
Shortly after the win in curling, 14-year-old Shane Sommer of Port Williams won Team Nova Scotia’s first gold medal of the Canada Games.
