BRATISLAVA, Slovakia — Wakefield resident Stephen Carriere Jr. has received a couple of international assignments from the United States Figure Skating Association and he made the most of one of them.

Team USA won the final two disciplines at the Ondrej Nepela Trophy on Saturday, Oct. 4 with Carriere taking men’s gold and Maia Shibutani and Alex Shibutani topping the ice dance podium.

It was the 22nd Ondrej Nepala Troply and it was held at the O. Nepala Ice Rink in Bratislava, Slovakia.

Coming into the free skate trailing South Korea’s Jin Seo Kim by less than a point, Carriere outclassed the rest of the field in Bratislava with a 148.58-point free skate. Russia’s Gordei Gorshkov finished second in the segment with 138.85 points.

Carriere opened his “Clair de Lune” and “Turning Page” free with two high-scoring elements: A quad toe worth 10.30 points and a triple Axel-double toe that notched 10.60 points. He also turned in a Level 4 spin and a Level 4 step sequence. Carriere finished with a total score of 219.76 points to take gold — his first at a senior international event since the 2011 Ice Challenge.

Kim won silver, turning in 135.90 points for his “Legends of the Fall” free, for a final score of 207.34. The reigning South Korean champion did not attempt a quad, instead starting his performance with a triple Axel-double toe followed by a triple Lutz.

Gorshkov missed out on silver by less than a point, settling for bronze with a final score of 206.55. The Russian skater’s highest-scoring element in the free was a triple Axel-double toe that received 10.00 points. His triple Lutz-triple toe combination and his triple Lutz were both deemed to be under-rotated but his spins and step sequences were all Level 3 or Level 4.

Prior to the International, Carriere won the Cranberry Open in August.

Presently, the 25-year-old Boston College student and Wakefield Memorial High School graduate, is getting ready to head to Moscow, Russia in November for his next stop in the 2014 Grand Prix Series. The Rostelecom Cup will be held from Nov. 14-16 in Moscow.

Carriere is a member of the Skating Club of Boston and his coach is Suna Murray.
