On Sunday, Peterman and Gallant defeated Nancy Martin of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and Tyrel Griffith of Kelowna, British Columbia 9-6 in the gold medal game.
It was a big sixth end for Peterman and Gallant. With the game tied at three points each, Peterman and Gallant were able to score five points and take a commanding 8-3 lead.
In 11 games in Fredericton, Peterman and Gallant were victorious 10 times. Their only loss came to Tyler Tardi of Surrey, British Columbia and Dezaray Hawes of Anmore, British Columbia by a score of 6-4.
Peterman and Gallant will now represent Canada at the 2019 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship in Stavanger, Norway. That will take place from April 20-27.
It was a disappointing week of curling however for Team Canada at the Women’s World Curling Championship in Silkeborg, Denmark. Canada’s Chelsea Carey of Calgary, Alberta failed to make the playoffs with a record of six wins and six losses. Switzerland beat Sweden 8-7 in the gold medal game.
Team Canada did however win a medal in men’s curling earlier this month at the 2019 Winter Universiade in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. The Canadian team, skipped by Karsten Sturmay of Leduc, Alberta won the silver medal, as they lost 6-5 to Norway in the gold medal game.
The silver medal in men’s curling was one of five medals won by Canada at the 2019 Winter Universiade. The others came in hockey and snowboarding. Canada won the bronze medal in men’s hockey and the silver medal in women’s hockey. In snowboarding, Will Malisch of Markham, Ontario won the gold medal in men’s snowboard cross and Audrey McManiman of Saint-Ambroise-de-Kildare, Quebec won bronze in women’s snowboard cross.
