The Concordia Stingers men’s basketball team is a perfect 4-0 after two wins on home court last weekend. Centre Réal Kitieu led the way Friday with 23 points and 20 rebounds in a 77-66 win over Royal Military College of Kingston, Ont.

Rookie James Aubourg scored 15 points for the eighth-ranked Stingers, who were trying out a new “trap-style” defence in the game. It may not have produced the most exciting brand of basketball, but it got the desired result.

On Sunday, the Stingers received 21 points from Wayne Alexander and defeated the Queen’s Golden Gaels 92-79 in overtime. The visitors tied the game with just two seconds left in regulation time to force an extra period. The Stingers got 16 points from Gavin Musgrave and 15 points from Aubourg.

The women weren’t as fortunate, as they lost 75-53 to Queen’s. The Stingers were within six points at halftime, but the visitors pulled away in the final two quarters.

Lawton gets 450th win

The Trois Rivières Patriotes upset the No. 2-ranked Concordia Stingers 3-1 in women’s hockey action last Friday at the Ed Meagher Arena. The Stingers’ Lisa-Marie Breton opened the scoring in the first period, but Trois Rivières scored three straight in the final two periods to sew up the win.

The girls had far better luck Sunday as they posted a 4-2 win over the Ottawa Gees-Gees, giving head coach Les Lawton his 450th career victory. Lawton is in his 18th year as the Stingers coach. Concordia has won 13 of the last 16 Quebec championships and two national titles (1998 and 1999). Lawton has a record of 450 wins, 135 losses and 54 ties.

Leanne Martel led the way in Sunday’s game, scoring twice, while Breton had a goal and three assists.

Men ice pair of wins

The men’s hockey team made the most of its weekend in southern Ontario by picking up two victories. Coach Kevin Figsby and his troops beat the Ryerson Rams 5-2 last Friday night before dumping the Brock Badgers 5-3 on Saturday.

The second-place Stingers are eight points behind the first-place Trois Rivieres Patriotes and four points up on the third-place McGill Redmen.

The Pats edged the Stingers 3-2 last Wednesday at the Meagher Arena.
