When asked if their approach in tomorrow’s match will change with Ontario’s upstart win, Charron explained that definitely will change their approach: “We were expecting the more experienced Albertans to move into the Finals, now we do not know quite what to expect from this team that was formed specifically for the Canada Games.”

Tomorrow’s Finals in Men’s Doubles is expected to begin at 10:30 AM at the Canada Games Center.
