Men’s Rugby win high­lights Home­com­ing Fri­day at Bishop’s

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Len­noxville

RyanOze­roff’s (Ot­tawa, Ont.) two-yard plunge in the 52nd minute gave the Bishop’s Gaiters their first win of the sea­son, 12-5, over the Sher­brooke Vert et Or in Que­bec univer­sity rugby union ac­tion last Fri­day night. The nearly 1,000 fans at Coul­ter Field saw the fifth-year hooker take a pass from Billy Mur­phy (Rich­mond, Que.) di­rectly off a penalty and touch the ball down un­der­neath the goal­posts.

The Gaiters dom­i­nated the open­ing stages, with par­tic­u­larly strong work in their li­ne­outs and scrums. Noah Har­ri­son (Toronto, Ont.) put Bishop’s on the board in the 12th minute. Com­ing off a li­ne­out 10 yards from the try line, Adam Moore (Dart­mouth, N.S.) flipped the ball to Har­ri­son, who ran around the pack and into the end zone for the score. Bishop’s held the ball for the most of the first half, in­clud­ing a late push near half­time, but were un­lucky not to ex­tend their lead.

Sher­brooke came out stronger in the sec­ond half, and tied the game in the 46th minute on a five-yard run by Pa­trick Colombe. They ap­peared to have taken the lead on Yan­nick Mailhot’s con­ver­sion at­tempt, but it was ruled no good by the ref­eree.

Af­ter the Gaiters worked the ball back into the Sher­brooke end, the Vert & Or were called for a penalty five yards out from goal. Mur­phy took the tap, and found Ozeroff com­ing through the mid­dle, set­ting up the game-win­ning score. Ni­co­las Alexan­dre’s (Bordeaux, France) con­ver­sion pro­vided the fi­nal mar­gin. Sher­brooke picked up one bonus point from the con­test for their seven-point loss.

The Gaiters (1-1-1, 6 pts) re­turn to ac­tion on Fri­day, Septem­ber 30, when they host the Con­cor­dia Stingers. Kick­off at Coul­ter Field is set for 8 p.m.

WOMEN’S SOC­CER: UQTR 1, GAITERS 1 A 77th minute goal by Jes­sica Lavallée al­lowed the UQTR Pa­tri­otes to sal­vage a 1-1 tie with the Bishop’s Gaiters in Que­bec univer­sity soc­cer ac­tion last Fri­day night at Coul­ter Field.

Frédérique Cloutier (Leth­bridge, Alta.) had put the Gaiters ahead in the 36th minute, on her first goal of the sea­son. The sub­sti­tute took a pass from rookie Patricia Murray (Syd­ney, N.S.) and made no mis­take from the top of the penalty area. She had three op­por­tu­ni­ties to ex­tend the lead late in the first half and early in the sec­ond, but nar­rowly missed the net each time.

Lavallée tied the game with 13 min­utes left, as she took a through ball up the mid­dle from Amélie Per­ron, and fired it low past the Gaiters’ Marie-Pierre Har­vey (Que­bec City, Que.). The Pa­tri­otes car­ried more of the pos­ses­sion as the sec­ond half wore on.

Har­vey made six saves for the Gaiters, while Stéphanie Rousseau made seven for UQTR. The goal scor­ers were each named their teams’ re­spec­tive MVPs. The Gaiters at­tempted 16 shots in the game, led by Cloutier’s seven at­tempts, while UQTR tried eight shots.

Bishop’s (0-4-1) re­turns to ac­tion on Tues­day night, as they visit the Sher­brooke Vert & Or.

WOMEN’S RUGBY: SHER­BROOKE 34, GAITERS 0

A pair of tries each by Lisa-Anne Lessard and Anne-So­phie Hamel led the Sher­brooke Vert & Or to a 34-0 shutout of the Bishop’s Gaiters in CIS univer­sity rugby ac­tion at Coul­ter Field. Lessard’s score on the stroke of half­time gave Sher­brooke an in­sur­mount­able 19-0 lead.

Marie-Pier Labonté had opened the scor­ing for Sher­brooke (1-2) in the 16th minute, as she broke through the Gaiter de­fence and cruised into the end zone. The first of Hamel’s scores fol­lowed seven min­utes later, as the vis­i­tors dou­bled their lead.

Sher­brooke put the game away in a 13-minute span mid­way through the sec­ond half. Lau­rence DubreuilDupont found the end zone in the 46th minute, with Hamel’s sec­ond try com­ing four min­utes later. Lessard closed out the scor­ing in the 58th minute. A pair of con­ver­sions by Mar­jo­laine Lan­thier rounded out the scor­ing.

The loss drops the Gaiters to 0-3 on the sea­son.

Thisweekend, “Cul­ture Days” will be cel­e­brated right across Canada with mu­se­ums and cul­tural or­ga­ni­za­tions plan­ning spe­cial ac­tiv­i­ties. The Musee Beaulne is host­ing “Journee portes ou­vertes” on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 2nd, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Guided tours of the Chateau Nor­ton will take place along with the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the mu­seum’s new in­ter­ac­tive ter­mi­nal.

The Com­mu­nity Art Lab of the Fore­man Art Gallery, lo­cated at Bishop’s Univer­sity, is call­ing on the pub­lic to par­take in ‘Sher­brooke, let’s talk cul­ture!’, a two-day event that in­vites mem­bers of the com­mu­nity to write a per­son­al­ized post­card to the City of Sher­brooke, shar­ing their views on cul­ture in the re­gion. Copies of the post­cards will be put on dis­play at the Fore­man Art Gallery, cre­at­ing a rich ar­chive of cit­i­zens who are pas­sion­ate about cul­ture. This project gives a voice and vis­i­bil­ity to the cit­i­zens of Sher­brooke, cre­at­ing a po­lit­i­cal fo­rum to­wards the de­vel­op­ment of cul­ture in the re­gion.

Or­ga­nized on the 30th of Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber 1st dur­ing “Cul­ture Days”, this off-site event will take place at three dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions through­out Sher­brooke, where par­tic­i­pants will have the op­por­tu­nity to speak-out and share their opin­ions about the de­vel­op­ment of cul­ture in the re­gion. This ac­tiv­ity re­sponds to the City’s re­cently re­vised Cul­tural Pol­icy re­leased in May 2011 and as­serts the place of the Arts as a vi­tal cul­tural, so­cial and eco­nomic driver.

The Musée des Beaux-arts de Sher­brooke will hold its tra­di­tional open house, for the Journées de la cul­ture, Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 2nd, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Vis­i­tors will have a last chance to ad­mire paint­ings from the ex­hi­bi­tion “Im­pres­sion­nism?”, end­ing that day, and cho­sen pieces from the mu­seum’s col­lec­tion : Spa­ces & Land­scapes.

There will be a guided tour in French of Im­pres­sion­nisme? and Plan­ning 101, a short talk on how to set up an ex­hi­bi­tion. This short talk, in French, will ex­plain the set­ting up of a new ex­hi­bi­tion. Did you know that a cu­ra­tor has to be an ex­pert with ham­mer and nails, and love hard­ware stores or that the di­rec­tor drives a truck quite reg­u­larly to Montreal and Que­bec City? Learn the se­crets of an ex­hi­bi­tion: many sur­prises in store for all vis­i­tors. Both ac­tiv­i­ties will be of­fered at 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. Bien­v­enue à tous!

Sher­brooke’s Musee de la sci­ence et de la na­ture will be free for chil­dren on Oc­to­ber 1st and 2nd. Also, on Oc­to­ber 2nd, vis­i­tors can learn about the award-win­ning projects from the Expo Sciences Hy­dro-Que­bec 2011 com­pe­ti­tion.
