Hudson’s Heroics Lead Gaiters In Penultimate Contest
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.
