Strong weekend for the Bishop’s Gaiters

By Emilie Hackett, Special to The Record

The Bishop’s University Gaiters had an overall positive Sunday, on September 15, with a win for the men’s and women’s rugby teams, a draw for women’s soccer, a loss for the women’s hockey team in the 2019 exhibition opener, and a third place for Gaiters golfers at the Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (UQTR) Invitational.
Five conversions and two tries by captain Tyler Murphy led the men’s rugby team to a sure victory against the École de Technologie Supérieure Piranhas on Coulter Field. The 45-12 was also made possible thanks to tries by Marceau Bertin, Matthew Shufelt, Jack Shaw, and two tries by Mario Jonker. “It’s one of those days where so many people had a great game and we were fortunate enough to score early and in both halves, so that always keeps the momentum going,” said head coach Andy Cowell after the game. The team will have a bye week, as their next game will be on homecoming week. See full story in the Tuesday, Sept. 17 edition of The Record.
