Gaiters Men’s Rugby Close Out Sea­son

Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

TheBishop’s Univer­sity Gaiters men’s rugby team closed out their sea­son on Fri­day night on Coul­ter Field. They beat the Con­cor­dia Stingers 38-18 and tem­po­rar­ily held the fourth and fi­nal play­off po­si­tion. Un­for­tu­nately for the pur­ple and sil­ver when the Mon­treal Cara­bins de­feated the Sher­brooke Vert et Or on Sun­day the Gaiters were elim­i­nated from the RSEQ Univer­sity men’s rugby play­offs.

Bishop’s was led by Ni­co­las Charl­ton (North Hat­ley, Que.) who scored two tries and con­verted four con­verts for 18 points. He and the Bishop’s of­fense had strug­gled en­ter­ing the con­test; they had scored just 15 points in their pre­vi­ous five games. Their of­fen­sive ex­plo­sion came too late in the sea- son as they fin­ish the year with a 2-6 record and 10 points. Mon­treal’s win on the fi­nal day of the sea­son gave them an iden­ti­cal 2-6 record; how­ever thanks to an ex­tra bonus point dur­ing the year, they fin­ish with 11 points and grab fourth place.

Mon­treal will face top ranked McGill while Sher­brooke trav­els to Con­cor­dia for the RSEQ semi-fi­nals.
