The adventures of our two Quebec teams at the Canadian Mixed Doubles Championship ended yesterday in Calgary.
Team Quebec (Laurie St-Georges and Félix Asselin) finished with a clear victory over Team Yukon in the afternoon. Still, it wasn’t enough to get them through to the championship round. With a record of 4 victories and 2 defeats, Laurie and Félix left their mark during their first team appearance at the tournament. In particular, St-Georges and Asselin showed us their skills against high-calibre teams such as Einarson/Gushue. Without a doubt, the future looks bright for these two young athletes, who had already proven their talents at this year’s Scotties and Brier.
For their part, Robert and Émilie Desjardins concluded their Canadian championship experience with a 3-3 record. The father-daughter duo from Chicoutimi left everything on the ice of the Markin McPhail Centre and spoiled us with crushing wins in their games against Team Ontario (10-2) and Team Yukon (9-2). The Desjardins/Desjardins team has demonstrated once again that they are a formidable formation.
Quebec can be proud of how these two teams represented it at the 2021 Canadian Mixed Doubles Championship. Bravo Teams St-Georges/Asselin and Desjardins/Desjardins!
