The McGill Redmen (3-3) beat back both the cold and the Bishop’s Gaiters (1-5) in Lennoxville on Oct. 14 on their way to a 37-14 victory. The Redmen closed the first half with a dominant 23-0 lead to canter home for a victory in front of a crowded Coulter field on a freezing October evening.
“[Football] is something my mom forced me to be a part of,” Spooner said. “So many benefits came after that—friendships, it helped me focus on school and do better in school; if you got bad marks you got kicked off the team [in high school….] It has just helped my life out so much. It keeps you from doing bad stuff [….] You meet so many great individuals and great peers.”
McGill Redmen football’s (2-2) offence stalled in a 20-11 defeat to the Sherbrooke Vert et Or (2-2), on a blustery Sept. 24 day at McGill’s Molson Stadium. It was a disappointing loss for the Redmen, who led the Vert et Or for the first three quarters of the game. Sherbrooke, however, capitalized on McGill’s inability to find the endzone after the first quarter, stringing together some impressive fourth-quarter drives to put the game out of reach for the home team.
