Andrew Jamieson named Provigo Robert Lafond Athlete of the Week
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.
