The Concordia Stingers football team had its playoff hopes dashed last Saturday by the Bishop’s Gaiters, who beat them soundly, 42-8, at Concordia Stadium. The lopsided loss was a surprise, considering that the Stingers were coming off their first win of the year, a 37-14 triumph in Guelph the week before.

“We haven’t really done anything offensively all year,” said an obviously disappointed Gerry McGrath, the rookie head coach of the Stingers. “We’ll now battle it out for last place with Queen’s this weekend. This is not the way it was supposed to be.”

Ex-Stinger coach Pat Sheahan will bring the Golden Gaels into town for a 1 p.m. start on Saturday. Both teams have won just one of seven games and have been eliminated from the playoffs.


Two goals by Xavier Renard weren’t enough as the Stingers men’s soccer team lost 3-2 to the Laval Rouge et Or in Ste. Foy last Saturday. They fared better Sunday, tying the No.1 ranked team in the country, the McGill Redmen, 1-1. Brian Tobin (no, not that Brian Tobin) tied the game for McGill with a goal in the 88th minute. Anmar Bedawieh scored in the first half to give the Stingers the lead.

The women’s team lost 1-0 to Laval last Saturday, and 2-0 to the McGill Martlets on Sunday.


All the way out in Saskatoon, the men’s basketball team beat the University of Saskatchewan 77-68 to finish second overall in the Husky Mohawk Shootout Men’s Basketball Tournament. Réal Kitieu led the way with 25 points and 15 rebounds for the winners.


The men’s hockey team split their first two regular season games, beating Royal Military College 6-2 last Friday, and losing 4-2 to Queen’s on Saturday. Both games took place at Concordia Arena. Patrice Roy scored twice for the winners with singles going to Vince Labossière, Chris Page, Sebastien Roy and Mathieu Fleury. On Sunday, Ottawa native Aaron Fransen was a one-man wrecking crew for Queen’s, scoring three goals. Karl Castonguay and Page scored for Concordia. The Stingers had 52 minutes in penalties in the game, compared to 22 for Queen’s.

The women’s hockey team lost 4-2 to the University of Maine in exhibition action. Lisa Marie Breton and Annie Suprenant scored for Concordia.
