Champlain Cavaliers > Cavaliers News > Men's Rugby Capture First Win

wp_mr_van02The Champlain Men’s Rugby team was facing a very challenging opponent in André-Laurendeau, in rainy and cold conditions.

After getting off to a quick start thanks to a try by the scrum half Laurent Jomphe, the Cavaliers plowed in a few tries, notably by Waleed Mohamed who scored two within a very short span.

When the second half rolled along, Champlain did not take off their foot off the gas.  After a few injuries in key positions, the Cavaliers scored several times, thanks in part to Laurent Bouchard showing an exceptional first step and great athleticism.  Champlain won the game 39-0.

The Cavaliers play their next game on October 11 at Marianopolis (Concordia Field – Loyola Campus). Kick-off at 7:00 PM.
