Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Len­noxville, Sher­brooke

Bishop’sGaiters men’s rugby player An­drew Jamieson has been named the Provigo Robert La­fond Ath­lete of the week. He was a fun­da­men­tal part of the Gaiters squad hand­ing the Sher­brooke Vert et Or their first loss on of the sea­son.

The Gaiters (3-1, 13 points) con­trolled pos­ses­sion for most of the game against Sher­brooke (3-1, 14 points). The Montreal na­tive, Jamieson is in his third year and kept what is a young back­line or­ga­nized de­fen­sively. The wet con­di­tions ul­ti­mately led to a Bishop’s 5-0 win.

Of­fen­sively the 6’2, 205 pound busi­ness stu­dent scored an ex­cel­lent try from 40 me­tres out. He beat four de­fend­ers along the way. He also had three other line breaks in the game, one of which took him to the Sher­brooke one me­tre line be­fore they com­mit­ted a penalty and killed the mo­men­tum.

“An­drew was in­te­gral in the team’s de­fen­sive ef­fort,” said Charles Goode, Bishop’s coach. “He scored an ex­cel­lent try from 40 me­tres out and was our man of the match.”

Bishop’s Ath­let­ics is proud to have our ath­lete of the week spon­sored by Provigo, Robert La­fond. The Gaiters and Vert et Or will play again, this time on Coul­ter Field tonight, Oc­to­ber 10 at 8 p.m. With a win Bishop’s will jump into first place in the RSEQ.
