MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford captured their second straight national pairs title Saturday, edging Kirsten Moore-Towers and Dylan Moscovitch by two points at the Canadian figure skating championships.

Duhamel, from Lively, Ont., and Radford, from Balmertown, Ont., scored 137.55 for their free skate to earn 206.63 points overall and bring the Hershey Centre crowd to its feet.

Moore-Towers, from St. Catharines, Ont., and Moscovitch, from Waterloo, Ont., scored 204.54 overall.

Paige Lawrence of Kennedy, Sask., and Rudi Swiegers of Kipling, Sask., won the bronze with 171.13 points.

"Dylan's my best friend. It was challenging to be really happy for him in that moment," Radford said, laughing. "But I am, I'm really happy for him and for us. It was an incredible night of skating."

Duhamel could barely contain her nerves as she waited for the scores, sitting with clenched fists as she stared at the television monitor.

"Oh my god, that was the most amazing feeling I have ever had in my life," she said. "It was like a million roller-coasters that we just rode."
