Bishop’s loses big in show­down with ert et Or

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Len­noxville, Sher­brooke

In a stun­ning de­feat, the Bishop’s Gaiters went down with a score of 38 to 7 at last Satur­day night’s an­nual Coupe du Maire con­fronta­tion with their rivals, the Vert et Or of the Univer­sité de Sher­brooke. Played this year on Coul­ter Field, it was the 11th edi­tion of the event. The Vert et Or were up four­teen points after the first thirty min­utes after two touch­downs.

Bishop’s coach Kevin Mackey was re­ported say­ing after the game: “I’m not happy. We re­ceived too many use­less penal­ties and had too many turnovers to win this match. We must fin­ish our of­fen­sive pushes and score points. As for the spe­cial units, we weren’t al­ways good.”

The Bishop’s Gaiters will play the Cara­bins of the Univer­sité de Montreal, in Montreal, this Fri­day. The McGill Red­men will travel to Sher­brooke to play the Vert et Or on Satur­day.
