OBERSTDORF, Germany - Canadian figure skater Dylan Moscovitch and his Russian-born pairs partner Lubov Ilyushechkina won silver at the Nebelhorn Trophy on Saturday with a total 184.40 points.

Moscovitch and Ilyushechkina scored 118.42 in their free program to solidify the second-place finish.

"We felt pretty good about our program," said Ilyushechkina. "We are very happy with how it went. It went from the beginning to the end with one smooth motion and we kept the chemistry and togetherness throughout the whole performance."

Aliona Savchenko and Bruno Massot of Germany won gold with 203.04 points and their teammates Mari Vartmann and Ruben Blommaert won the bronze with 162.38 points.

In women's, Gabrielle Daleman of Newmarket, Ont., won the bronze medal after scoring 60.15 in the short and 115.25 in the free for a total of 175.40.

"I am very happy with how it went," Daleman said. "No matter what happened it was my third full long I've done since I have been back, due to injuries this summer. I didn't give up the program one bit, I kept the story and the skating going.

"It went much better than I could have imaged and I am happy to start off my season like this."

Mai Mihara of Japan won gold with 189.03 points and Russia's Elizaveta Tuktamysheva claimed the silver with 185.93 points.

On Friday, Piper Gilles of Toronto and Paul Poirier of Unionville, Ont., won the bronze medal in ice dance and Liam Firus of North Vancouver, B.C., placed fifth in men's.
