Mal­loy Mag­nif­i­cent While Hud­son Helps As Bishop’s Men’s Lacrosse And Rugby Earn Vic­to­ries

Stanstead Journal - - SPORTS - Len­noxville, Sher­brooke

Twelve­goals and five as­sists is a good month for some, a good year for oth­ers. Bishop’s Gaiters lacrosse at­tack­man James Mal­loy tal­lied those num­bers in just two con­tests over the week­end. His ef­forts helped Bishop’s top Car­leton and Queen’s in CUFLA East ac­tion and move to 4-0 on the year.

Back home, Lee Hud­son (Sut­ton, Que.) led the Gaiters men’s rugby team to a 19-17 vic­tory over the Sher­brooke Vert et Or on Sun­day. The women’s rugby team fell to the No. 3 Ot­tawa Gee-Gees in the sec­ond half of a Sun­day dou­ble header on Coul­ter Field. Also in ac­tion, the women’s soc­cer team se­cured their first point of the sea­son, draw­ing 1-1 with Concordia on Sun­day in Mon­treal.

Mal­loy (Whitby, Ont.), a fifth-year bi­ol­ogy ma­jor had a ca­reer week­end. Af­ter be­ing named a sec­ond star last week by In Lacrosse We Trust with 12 points, Mal­loy made sure to stay on their radar. His 29 points through four games leads all of CUFLA and is eight bet­ter than his team­mate Ma­son Austen (High River, Alta.) who sits sec­ond place.

Bishop’s scored early and of­ten against Car­leton, hold­ing 7-0 half­time ad­van­tage be­fore fin­ish­ing with a 12-5 vic­tory over the Ravens in Ot­tawa on Satur­day night. Mal­loy scored six times and had three as­sists. A quick turn­around saw Bishop’s in Kingston to play the Queen’s Gaels at 12 p.m. on Sun­day. The 5-4 Bishop’s ad­van­tage at half­time was ex­tended thanks to a five goal third stanza while they al­lowed just one. The fi­nal was 14-8 with Mal­loy adding six goals and pick­ing up another two as­sists. Af­ter two week­ends on the road, Bishop’s will open their home sched­ule against the Trent Ex­cal­ibur on Satur­day at 5 p.m. on Coul­ter Field. A re-match with Queen’s is set for Sun­day at 12 p.m. also in Len­noxville.

Cap­tain Nic Charl­ton (Mon­treal) booted through two con­ver­sions on three Gaiters’ tries and that proved to be the dif­fer­ence as the Bishop’s topped cross-town ri­val Sher­brooke 19-17 on Sun­day. The game marked the Gaiters home opener. Sher­brooke also man­aged three tries thanks to their over-pow­er­ing for­ward pack but only was able to con­vert on one of them.

Bishop’s Coach Charles Goode sin­gled out Charl­ton as well as Hud­son and Robert McGovern (Bring­ham, Que.) as key cogs in the Gaiters lineup on the day.

“Lee played through some pain to­day,” said the reign­ing RSEQ Coach of the Year. “He was out­stand­ing on de­fense and on at­tack. He was also fan­tas­tic with the ball in his hand. Robert was amaz­ing; he re­ally showed off his speed ev­ery time they kicked to the back. Nic was solid on the day in­clud­ing a nice lit­tle try he jumped in be­fore the half.”

Bishop’s is next in ac­tion on Sun­day in Mon­treal at 3 p.m. against up-start ETS.

OnFri­day, Septem­ber 18th, the first an­nual Cen­tre de la Santé de la Val­lée Mas­saw­ippi Golf Tour­na­ment was suc­cess­fully held at the Duf­ferin Heights Golf and Coun­try Club. An im­pres­sive 116 golfers en­joyed a beau­ti­ful day full of great scores, prizes for ev­ery­one, a won­der­ful me­choui din­ner and an ex­cit­ing auc­tion later in the evening. Tour­na­ment Chair­per­son Mrs. Francine Otis and her com­mit­tee pre­sented a cheque for the amount of $15,000.00 to Nancy Lay­ton, the Pres­i­dent of the Fon­da­tion de la Val­lée Mas­saw­ippi to high­light the evening. Dur­ing the live auc­tion, an au­then­tic, au­to­graphed Jonathan Toews game sweater yielded $1,100.00.

The Bishop’s Gaiters women’s soc­cer team pulled off a gutsy 1-1 draw in Mon­treal on Sun­day against the Concordia Stingers. Short-handed due to in­juries, Bishop’s was backed in net by Aquila Henry-Cot­nam (Rich­mond Hill, Ont.), a nat­u­ral striker. The Gaiters put for­ward one of their best per­for­mances of the year. The Bishop’s goal, their first of the sea­son in the team’s fourth game, came from ju­nior Tif­fany Smith (Oshawa, Ont.) with less than 10 min­utes to go. The tally gave Bishop’s the lead, un­for­tu­nately for them the hosts an­swered with less than three min­utes left to make the fi­nal 1-1.

The draw came in Bishop’s sec­ond game of the week­end. A slow start on Fri­day night left the Gaiters chas­ing the Sher­brooke Vert et Or in Sher­brooke. The fi­nal was 5-0 but Bishop’s found them­selves trail­ing 2-0 less than 10 min­utes in and 4-0 at half­time. A stronger sec­ond half paved the way for the Gaiters to ex­cel in Mon­treal on Sun­day.

Bishop’s is next in ac­tion Fri­day night in Mon­treal against the No.5-ranked Cara­bins at 6 p.m. They re­turn to Coul­ter Field on Sun­day at 2:30 p.m. against the UQTR Pa­tri­ots.

The Bishop’s women’s rugby squad knew they were in tough on Sun­day against the na­tion’s third ranked team, the Ot­tawa Gee-Gees. They lost 72-5 but fought un­til the very end. The Gaiters try came from Mercedes Liedtke (Pem­brooke, Ont.) in the 78th minute.

Af­ter play­ing four games in 18 days to open the sea­son, the Gaiters will now en­joy a bye week. They are next in ac­tion on Coul­ter Field on Fri­day, Oct. 2 at 6 p.m. as part of Bishop’s an­nual home­com­ing fes­tiv­i­ties.

The Bishop’s Po­lar Bears women’s hockey team played two ex­hi­bi­tion games over the week­end in Ot­tawa in­clud­ing one against a CIS op­po­nent. On Satur­day Bishop’s fell 7-0 to the Car­leton Ravens, but Bianka Landry, the Po­lar Bears goalie was out­stand­ing mak­ing 62 saves in the game. On Sun­day Bishop’s suited up against the Ot­tawa Ice, a se­nior women’s team from the na­tion’s cap­i­tal. Bishop’s lost 7-0. With another week­end in the books for Bishop’s ath­let­ics, stay
