It was a gloomy Thanks­giv­ing week­end for the Bishop’s Gaiters, as no team was able to bring home a league win.

The women’s soc­cer team faced the UQAM Ci­tadins on Thurs­day, Oct. 4 in Mon­treal, los­ing 2-0. Now last in the league, Bishop’s (0-9-1) will travel to Mon­treal on Fri­day, Oct. 12, to bat­tle the Con­cor­dia Stingers (3-6-1).

For their last home game of the year, the Bishop’s men’s rugby team faced the RSEQ lead­ers, the Con­cor­dia Stingers, for a heated match on Fri­day, Oct. 5. De­spite a wild in­ter­cep­tion and try by Robert Mcgovern, three penal­ties, and a con­ver­sion by lead-scorer Tyler Mur­phy, the Gaiters were not able to hold off the league’s cham­pi­ons, who ul­ti­mately won 48-16 over the Bishop’s team. Now in third place, the Gaiters will travel to Mon­treal Satur­day, Oct. 13 at 7 p.m. to face École de Tech­nolo­gie Supérieure.

The foot­ball team flew over to Hal­i­fax on Satur­day, Oct. 6, to face the St. Mary’s Huskies. De­spite a 15-yard in­ter­cep­tion which led to a touch­down by safety Aar­ron Franklin, the Gaiters could not beat the #1 team in the At­lantic Univer­sity Sports League, los­ing 18-9. The Bishop’s team (0-6) will be back in Nova Sco­tia next week­end to face the Aca­dia Ax­e­men (2-3) on Satur­day, Oct.13, at 3 p.m. lo­cal time.

The Bishop’s lacrosse team trav­elled to Maine for two scrim­mages on Oct. 6 and 7. De­spite only play­ing ex­hi­bi­tion games, they earned the Gaiters their only “win” of the week­end. They won 258 against Bridg­ton Academy on Satur­day but lost 7-4 against Saint Michael’s Col­lege on Sun­day. Rookie Ja­cob Gasperetti led the week­end of­fen­sively along with Mathew Pater­son and cap­tain Joel Wright. The Gaiters (3-4) will be back in CUFLA ac­tion on Satur­day, Oct. 13 in Mon­treal to face their ri­vals and #1 Mcgill Red­men (6-0) at 7 p.m.

The women’s rugby team trav­eled to the na­tion’s capital on Mon­day, Oct. 8 to face the RSEQ lead­ers Ot­tawa Gee-gees. They hoped to be strong de­fen­sively to hold off their ri­vals.
