Hud­son’s Hero­ics Lead Gaiters In Penul­ti­mate Con­test

Stanstead Journal - - CLASSIFIED - Len­noxville, Sher­brooke

As­the first snow of 2015 cov­ered Coul­ter Field on Satur­day night, the Bishop’s Gaiters men’s lacrosse team heated up and rolled to a 15-2 vic­tory over the Univer­sity of Ot­tawa. That vic­tory came a night af­ter the Gaiters men’s rugby team won a con­vinc­ing 30-19 con­test against ETS. Also in ac­tion over the week­end, the women’s soc­cer team dropped a pair of games and the women’s rugby team lost their fi­nal game of 2015 while the men’s and women’s bas­ket­ball squad each com­peted in ex­hi­bi­tion tour­na­ments.

Lee Hud­son (Sut­ton, Que.) scored four tries from the eight-man po­si­tion as Bishop’s rolled over ETS 30-19 in RSEQ Univer­sity men’s rugby. ETS scored on the last play of the game to nar­row the mar­gin of a game Bishop’s con­trolled from the get-go. Fri­day night’s con­test was the sec­ond vic­tory for the Gaiters over the Pi­ranahs this year and left them firmly in sec­ond place in their divi­sion. A McGill vic­tory on Satur­day en­sured the Gaiters will fin­ish in sec­ond place with one reg­u­lar sea­son meet­ing with the Red­men to go. By fin­ish­ing sec­ond in the re-vamped RSEQ, Bishop’s will host a quar­ter-fi­nal on Coul­ter Field.

James Mal­loy (Whitby, Ont.) con­tin­ued his tor­rid pace as he pot­ted four goals and added three as­sists to lead the Bishop’s men’s lacrosse team to a 15-2 vic­tory over Ot­tawa on Satur­day night. The frigid Len­noxville air led to the first snow cov­ered field of the sea­son, how­ever it did not seem to af­fect the Gaiters who scored early and of­ten en route to a con­vinc­ing vic­tory. Bishop’s has al­ready locked up sec­ond place in the CUFLA East and en­sured them a quar­ter-fi­nal spot at the 2015 Bag­gat­away Cup, an event that will be hosted on Coul­ter Field from Nov. 6-8.

Bishop’s will close out the reg­u­lar sea­son por­tion of their sched­ule with a con­test against Car­leton in Len­noxville on Satur­day, Oct. 24 at 6 p.m.

The Bishop’s Gaiters women’s soc­cer team were road war­riors over the week­end as they trav­eled to Montreal on Fri­day night to face UQAM and Que­bec City on Sun­day for a tilt with the No. 1 ranked Laval Rouge et Or.

Bishop’s came up on the wrong end of 3-0 and 6-0 scores re­spec­tively as their record falls to 0-8-2 on the year.
