Rugby — Redmen 45, Bishop’s 14, McGill Ends Regular Season with Win

The Redmen continued to roll on Friday night, concluding their regular season schedule by defeating the Bishop’s Gaiters handily, 45-14. Third-year forward Ian Carvalho-Campos, who converted two tries in the victory, led the Redmen with a total of 10 points. Fellow third-year fullback Cameron Perrin matched Carvalho-Campos with 10 points, scoring five conversions. Five other Redmen tallied tries in the match, including Zechary Miller and Quentin Pradere. The Redmen sit third in the RSEQ at 4-4, and will meet the winner of the Concordia-Bishop’s game in the conference semifinal on the road, on Nov. 11. The RSEQ final takes place a week later.

Lacrosse — CUFLA Wildcard Playoff, Redmen Qualify for Nationals

The McGill Redmen lacrosse team earned a trip to Nationals on Saturday, following a playoff win against Carleton in the CUFLA wildcard playoff game. The Redmen defeated Carleton twice this season in resounding 17-3 and 15-9 victories. This match, with much higher stakes, was a little more tense. On the heels of a pair of hat-tricks from Ryan Besse and Alex Rohrbach, and a two goal game by captain Jishan Sharples, the Redmen left Molson Stadium with a 10-8 victory. It was the 100th career win for Head Coach Timothy Murdoch. With it, McGill heads to Peterborough, Ontario next weekend looking to win its first CUFLA East Finals.
