Rugby beats out Brock for bronze

The men’s rugby team closed out their season on a high note, beating the Brock Badgers 29-20 in Markham for the OUA bronze medal.

The Badgers started the game out strong by taking a 10-0 lead but the Gaels countered to take a 12-10 lead before halftime. The Gaels would need more points in the second to maintain their lead. Tries from Dan Moor and Hank McQueen solidified the win.

McQueen, who finished with 10 points, was named the man of the match for his two tries in the second half and his defensive effort.
