Bishop’s Men Help Cel­e­brate 45 Years Of Unb Rugby

Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

There will be 2,200 peo­ple tak­ing part in the 6th edi­tion of the XTRAIL Asics run­ning com­pe­ti­tion tak­ing place this Satur­day on Mt. Or­ford. The Or­ford edi­tion of this trail race is the most pop­u­lar in Canada. Reds are peren­ni­ally one of the top teams in the Mar­itimes while the Gaiters have strug­gled so far in the RSEQ.

The Bishop’s ‘A’ side was led once again by An­drew Jamieson (Mon­treal) who was named ‘ Man- of- the­Match’ as he led the pur­ple and sil­ver to a 25-15 vic­tory. Shayne Craw­ford (Sher­brooke, Que.), Ni­co­las Charleton (North Hat­ley, Que.) and Blake Dro­han (Toronto) also played strong games.

“An­drew Jamieson was ex­cel­lent,” said Rob­son. “This trip re­ally helped our moral as we had been strug­gling a lit­tle bit. Our for­wards fig­ured it out and we have some ex­cel­lent backs that can re­ally make a dif­fer­ence.”

The ‘B’ team fol­lowed in the shadow of the ‘A’ team suc­cess. They posted a 29-24 vic­tory over their UNB coun­ter­parts.

“There will be some play­ers on the B-side that will be key con­trib­u­tors on the A-team next year,” added Rob­son. “I’m happy with ev­ery­one’s per­for­mance through­out the weekend at this event.”

The Bishop’s Univer­sity men’s rugby team will be back in ac­tion in the RSEQ on Satur­day, Sept. 26 when they face the Sher­brooke Vert et Or in Sher­brooke at 11 a.m. The Gaiters will need a vic­tory as they cur­rently sit at 1-4 and on the out­side look­ing in at the play­offs with three games re­main­ing.
