Vs Concordia

Redmen lacrosse (7-0) was continued its dominance on Tuesday as it took on the Concordia Stingers for the second and final time this season. Freshman Spencer Bromley starred for McGill in its 23-1 trouncing of the Stingers, scoring five goals and adding on two assists. Other key contributions came from attackman Leland de Langley and midfielder Rhys Burnell, who both notched hat tricks in the winning effort.

The Redmen led 14-0 at halftime, and narrowly missed out on a shutout with Concordia scoring its lone goal in the third quarter. Manning the net for McGill were two rookies: William Waesche and Gordon Hart.

Following their victory against the Stingers, the Redmen traveled across the border to Troy, N.Y. to take on the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute—a much tougher challenge. McGill fell 6-11 to its NCAA foe.

McGill currently leads the CUFLA’s Eastern Division with its 7-0 conference record, competing with the Bishop’s Gaiters (4-2) for first place overall.

The Redmen’s next match will take place in Ottawa against the Carleton Ravens on Oct. 5.



Vs Concordia

Molson Stadium played host to an outstanding football game on Saturday as the Redmen faced off against Concordia in the 37th annual Montreal Shrine Bowl. The match featured seven lead changes, culminating in a 53-52 overtime victory for McGill.

Pierre-Luc Dussault started at quarterback in place of Jonathan Collin, throwing for 538 yards and three touchdowns. The Redmen came back from a 20-point hole in the second half of the game to tie up the score at 46-46. The key play occurred in the last minute of regulation, as Dussault threw to fourth-year Samy Rassy, who executed a 35-yard field-goal to force overtime.

The game-winning possession came on the back of Redmen running back Luis Guimont-Mota, who rushed the ball for 35 yards, ultimately scoring a one-yard touchdown to give McGill the 53-46 advantage. The Redmen held on to seal the victory.

Dussault was awarded offensive player-of-the-game honours, while freshman rush end Carl Laverdiere took home defensive honours.

McGill will host the Bishop’s Gaiters on Oct. 4 at Molson Stadium in a match that will have playoff implications for both teams.



The McGill Redmen (9-6) won three straight this past week to move into second place in the Northern Conference. McGill started off the dominant week by blowing out the John Abbot College Islanders (1-12) by a score of 20-4. The squad’s offensive output was so strong that the game ended after five innings rather than the requisite seven as the mercy rule was applied. Despite only outhitting the Islanders 8-7, the Redmen were able to capitalize off of six errors, 13 walks and two batters who were hit by pitches to pile up the runs. McGill then followed up with a double-header in the nation’s capital as they faced the Ottawa Gee Gees (5-8). In the first game, pitcher Landen Moore, went all seven innings to register the complete game. Sophomore second baseman Jamie Fuoco led the squad offensively with four RBIs. In the nightcap James Vardy picked up the win for the Redmen. Once again, McGill won despite not dominating the hits column, tying Ottawa 7-7. The week moves the Redmen 3.5 games behind Concordia for the lead in the conference with the playoffs starting on Oct. 5.



The McGill Redmen (4-0) took on the Bishop’s Gaiters last Thursday in an RSEQ showdown. The seven-time defending champions, McGill were able to extend their winning streak as they emerged victorious by a score of 24-5. The win represented the highest margin of victory for McGill this year as their path to another RSEQ championship has been considerably tougher. Cameron Perrin led the scoring for the squad with nine points, three from a penalty goal and an additional six from three successful conversions. Elsewhere, the squad had balanced scoring that was buoyed by freshmen Konstantin Born and James Wilson, and sophomore Thomas Stokes. The Redmen now play host to Sherbrooke (1-2) on Oct. 10 as they continue their quest for another championship.

Later on in the weekend the Martlets (4-1) took on the Gaiters and were able to top the century mark in a 109-5 victory over their overmatched opponents. Sophomore fullback Deanna Foster led the way with 30 points while senior fly-half Brianna Miller tacked on 29 while hitting 12 of her conversion opportunities en route to being named the most valuable player of the game. Emily Barber, Bianca Della Porta, and Katrine Lightstone also tallied double digit points totals for McGill. The Martlets now host Laval (3-2) in their second last game of the regular season on Sunday, Oct. 6. at McGill’s Macdonald Campus.
